Things Women Should Bring to Saudi

Expat
This post is a little guide to things you should think about bring to Saudi Arabia. The items listed are either not available, forbidden, limited and/or overly priced. I know when first moving to Saudi I was completely baffled about what to bring and ended up bring all the wrong things. This doesn’t only apply to Saudi Arabia, if you are considering relocating anywhere in the Middle East, this can be of help.
Of course there may be some things that don’t apply to you or are not listed and I would love to hear what they are. I always end up making a “Thing to get @home” list the minute I return to Saudi that ends up going on for the entire year. So keep in mind, that you can and will go home eventually!

There is so much to see and do but I have summed it down to my usual 5 Things, hope you enjoy!

It is glad to say the one thing that has benefitted from the sea are the Fish Market/ Restaurants. These restaurants lie on the outskirts of Jeddah City and can be found in the smaller cities lining the coast……
