This section invites you to try out your skills with tongue twisters - not just in English, but in a range of other languages too! Have a go, send in your own recordings and see how you compare with everyone else!
There is also a section on lampposts of the world. A bit esoteric? Perhaps, but check it out anyway!
Or if you're in the mood, you can discover the attraction of Lion statues as well as Pi Xiu. (Don't know what a Pi Xiu is? Never mind. It is all explained on the index page.)
You can also access pages about Riyadh - the capital of Saudi Arabia - that until recently was all but closed to tourism. Brian Salter worked in Saudi Arabia from 1999 to 2008 and has put together this travelogue. Although by its very nature, some of the information may start looking a little out of date, you can see how much there is to tempt the visitor. This is one of the most viewed web sites in the world that specifically deals with Riyadh.
