Living in Riyadh
To live in Saudi Arabia may present new challenges for people arriving from western countries. There are many restrictions in public, especially for woman. As soon as a woman is leaves her house she has to wear an “abaya”, which is a long-sleeved and floor-length garment. The religion police will caution women who have not covered their head with a scarf.

Furthermore, there are no churches and every religious item that is not from the Muslim religion will be confiscated at the airport. In restaurants, there are often two sections – the single men section and the family section. Single women who are staying alone in the city or with female friends have to join the family section.

It is also possible for a less restricted life as in public for women when living within a compound. These are resorts like neighborhoods with swimming pools, small grocery stores, entertainment venues, recreation centers, libraries, gyms and beauty shops available.
