Saudi Arabia’s Highway 10 is the world’s longest stretch of completely straight road, StepFeed reported.

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

Previously, Australia’s Eyre Highway held the record with approximately 146 kilometers of straight road but now the title is owned by Saudi Arabia.

The overlook of driving on a 250 plus kilometres straight road sounds fascinating but hundreds of straight kilometres are boring and dull.

However, the route of boringness bends right before it ends at Al Batha, giving a unique experience and a scroll through your entire music library.
