This past weekend I made my way down to Riyadh to visit friends and do fun things (shopping, dining etc)! I also attended my very first InterNations event with a friend. The event was held at Bonita Village Compound (visit) which is located on the outskirts of the city. It was quite the distance from the city centre and the taxi ride out there was lengthy. The compound is a new development and is pretty much deserted. With something like only 3 families and 15 bachelors currently residing in the entire compound.
Bonita Village Compound is very pretty, nicely designed and has well kept grounds. It is fully equipped with a bowling alley, restaurant/cafe, mini market , CINEMA and pool. If you like to leisurely relax, then this is the place to be. The event cost 150sar/ticket; including access to all the features mentioned above. I also includes a dinner and evening dance party of sorts. It was held from 2pm to around 10pm or later.
