Thank you very much for this nice cue card topic. to illustrate, Riyadh is a global city and capital of Saudi Arabia. This is a grand city and filled with all the modern benefits, and geographically located in the Arabian Peninsula. Some prominent historical issues are also attached to this city. Riyadh has an enriched history beginning from the pre-Islamic age and now this city is an iconic one. It accommodates over six million people at a time. This cue card task looks smart and I am happy to deal with this. The remaining answers are as followed. 

There are several districts and municipalities here and are assigned under authoritative control of the government. The city is spacious and there a wide number of options for various types of activities like commercial activities, entertainment options, shopping and dining in restaurants and much more. The night view of the city is stunning and there are some prominent landmarks as well that have made the city famous in the world.   

I have lots of memories with this city. I have been born and brought up here in Riyadh. I have passed my childhood in the old part of the city. And I also have experienced the developments of Riyadh. The developments were too rapid to adjust with in those days. Besides, I can recall the school and college days here which were filled with excitements. While living in the old part here, I used to move in the down town of the city with my friends and school mates. The memories will never die.

I like this city for many reasons. The most important thing about the city is it is my birth place. So, I have a different type of attraction to it. The modern facilities and the living are also a preferable matter to me. Therefore, I like this place very much.
