(MENAFN -Arab News) The Janadriyah National Festival for Heritage and Culture started on Wednesday in Riyadh. These two weeks of cultural presentations from across all Saudi regions are popular among modern Saudis, Gulf citizens and thousands of Arabs. Last year?s visitors counted up to more than three million, mostly from Arab backgrounds

As there are nearly 10 million non-Saudis who live and work in the Kingdom, I suggest that this festival is the best annual chance to get to know us better. Who were we? How did we live? Where? How? Who cultivated our lands? This is of course, besides all the other whens and whys

When I used to run a radio show years ago, called ?Cultural Tips? on Radio Riyadh, the biggest fact that I left with was the shortage of knowledge about our heritage and diverse culture. I still remember the many times that I had to answer saying: ?Yes, some of us lived in desert tents but thousands of us used to build their own houses!

Dear expat, please try your best and visit Janadriyah. There is so much in it to be seen and known. Much more than what Google offers
