An Expat Talks about Moving to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Riyadh

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

The best information I would give to someone moving to Saudi Arabia is: do not bring anything with you that you cannot carry in your suitcase. We recently moved back to Saudi and the customs gave us a very bad time with our home shipment. They broke new furniture, charged us duty on our used electronics, put things from someone elses shipment in ours and I imagine put some of ours in someone elses. There are numerous things missing and broken. We figure it is just another way to harras Americans.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We are in a very small compound with few amenites. The hopuse is Arab style. Most expats in this area have many more amemities.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

My husband chose this place because it is close to his office, and the house is large enough to accomodate us.
