Neom is planned as a 16-borough city on the Red Sea coast in the northwestern Saudi Region of Tabuk – 33 times the size of New York City that will be build from scratch. It will incorporate smart city technologies and also function as a tourist destination as well, planned to be completed in 2025.
Neom is a portmanteau of the Greek word neos, meaning “new,” and ”mustaqbal” in Arabic, the word for “future.” (Source: Saudi Embassy)
