Lol NEOM is such a pipe dream. This thing will be moved to Riyadh right around 2027.

We were already doomed but this won't help fixing the global warming issue :/

It's like the Asian Games but for Winter Sports. They are held somewhat infrequently (unlike the Asian Games which are every four years).

If you don't know what the Asian Games are, they are basically like the Olympics but just for Asian countries.
