Saudi-UAE road query
Does anyone have info on the road running from UAE to Saudi - specifically, can you take that route without having to cut through Qatar? I'm travelling overland from Oman to Turkey, have the Saudi visa but single entry only, and every map I look at, it appears that the only road running from UAE to Saudi cuts into Qatar at Salwa then back out again into Saudi. Getting a visa for Qatar isn't the problem, it's the fact that if I leave Saudi even for 10 miles to cut through Qatar, my visa won't allow me to go back in again!
I know maps can be deceiving sometime, and I've read at least one post made on this board last year which says the road from Riyadh-Hofuf runs directly into UAE: but any specific info from someone who's taken this route recently would be much appreciated.
