The highway, which stretches from Haradh to Al Batha, is around 256 kilometers and cuts through the Rub Al-Khali desert.

Highway 10 links the city of Haradh – famous for its oil and natural gas – to Al Batha, near the UAE border.

Usually, this highway is used for goods transport, and by people traveling from the central and western regions of Saudi Arabia to the UAE by road.

It’s a place where you definitely wouldn’t want to drive if you’re tired or feeling sleepy. It is probable that even the beautiful sand dunes and natural landscape won’t keep you awake here.

Australia’s Eyre Highway was the previous holder of the record, at approximately 146 kilometers of straight road.
