Snapchat is taking over Saudi’s Al Ula

Saudi Arabia’s Al Ula is famous for being a UNESCO world heritage site, but this month, visitors are set for a surprise as Snapchat has given it a futuristic update.

The social media platform has teamed up with a selection of artists to have their work featured on the Qasr Al Farid momument.

To access the Landmark filters, Snapchat users near Qasr Al Farid will be prompted to point their camera towards the monument and voila, the artwork will magically appear before their eyes.

Introduced in 2019, Snapchat Landmarkers has previously teamed up with various iconic buildings around the world, including the Flatiron Building in New York and the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

And with Saudi’s new tourist visa in place, we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before more of the kingdom’s main attractions are giving the Snapchat once over.
