I just googlemapped the town of Baish, Saudi Arabia, and on satellite view there's a pretty big looking river that runs from a lake in the north through just east of that town. The source lake looks like it's dammed, which would mean a permanent source of water to feed that river.

Jerry, I think that doesn't count exactly because of the dam. Close the watergates on a period of drought, and you have no river.

@Nichoboy, if you look at the satellite images on Google maps that river doesn't look very permanent.

@Jerry 928 @Nichoboy A permanent river is a river that has water flowing all throughout it all year round, Saudi arabia has many many rivers, but non are permanent

There was a river that flowed by my house in Riyadh about 3 times a year whenever it rained because the drainage system was useless.

I've posted a couple before that got deleted. I think one stayed up that I had taken myself. QM is mostly concerned about copyright infringement.

Oh, I made a similar quiz. Mine had Tonga, but I guess something counted as a river since I made it. https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/77845/countries-that-have-no-rivers

Here's a funny story: I had typed "no" into the search area, and thought I had clicked on "Countries with no snakes". I automatically started the quiz without thinking, and I was still doing pretty well! I was at 16/17, through the quiz, then took a look at the title and saw it read "Countries with no rivers". *facepalm* But hey, 16/17 is still pretty good when you think you're taking a different quiz!

Glad I'm not the only one - I often go blank on them; probably because I never associate them instantly/particularly with Asia

I found it hard to believe there are no rivers in all of The Bahamas, but first google link is a Wikipedia article "There are no rivers in the Bahamas."
