What should I pack when moving to Abha?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Abha to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Abha, it's important to pack clothing that is both respectful of the local culture and suitable for the climate. This includes loose, lightweight clothing to help cope with the heat, as well as more conservative items such as long-sleeved shirts and long pants. Women should also pack a headscarf or shawl to cover their hair in public places. In addition to clothing, you should also pack personal hygiene items, as some Western brands may not be readily available. This includes items like deodorant, toothpaste, and feminine hygiene products. Don't forget to pack any prescription medications you may need, along with a copy of your prescription. It's also a good idea to bring a basic first aid kit for minor injuries or illnesses. Electronics like your laptop, phone, and chargers are also essential. Remember to bring a power adapter as the plugs in Saudi Arabia may be different from those in your home country. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, bring an extra pair along with any necessary cleaning solutions. Pack important documents such as your passport, visa, driver's license, and any necessary medical records. It's also a good idea to have copies of these documents in case the originals are lost or stolen. Lastly, consider packing a few comfort items from home, such as your favorite snacks, books, or photos of loved ones. These can help make your new place feel more like home," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Abha, Saudi Arabia.
