ONLINE SHOPPING IN SAUDIA ARABIA

Expat
It seems like a decade ago I first mentioned online shopping in Saudi Arabia here on the blog. But being one of the most viewed posts of all-time it clearly speaks for itself. Many people including myself prefer online shopping, to the over crowded malls of Saudi. Not to mention the endless selection, better deals, and hard to find items all readily available at the click of a button.
As pleasant as online shopping is, the hardship falls on delivery options. With a practically non-existent postal service here in Saudi Arabia and no logical address system, delivery can become very chaotic. Let’s not forget online shopping is limited to courier service delivery that often adds a hefty surcharge to your order, sometimes making the
entire purchase impractical.
My review of the top places to shop online mentioned in my previous post still remain some of my favorites however with time comes new and better discoveries to I have listed my all-time 5 absolute favorite online shops.

The options for flights within the Kingdom are slim; two options. You have the choice from one of two SAUDIA and FLYNAS. Considering my previously voiced disdain for the latter I am left with one option which is SAUDIA. That being said their rates and flight availability is pretty good and their direct flight options to many international destinations is very welcoming.
That being said SAUDI has its share of prides and woes and here I am to run down the list of exactly what you will encounter on your travels with SAUDIA.
