"(Saudi Arabia) Love it or leave it!!!"

beautiful country, amazing architectures and cheap to shop . Lots of gold and precious stones that a women can dream off.
Once you landed at the airport and cross the red line for passport control, thats it ,no turning back!!! you would definetely experience culture shock ,but you get over it.
shopping malls are amazing very cosmopolitan and they have everything from top designers to cheap once. walking at cornish sea side is recommended not crowded and very clean. Architecture
along jeddah sometimes wierd but brilliant . I would recommend shopping at souk or their local market its like going back to medieval times very interesting. advice to travel with a taxi from hotel and you can asked them either to wait or come back to pick you up which they are always realiable.
i worked for 4 years in the country and i do love it, the only thing is buying with cosmetics or lingerie section is very challenging as most them are males . can you imagine how they recommend products for your skin, im just amuse!!!
About clothing, prepare to wear abaya (traditional black dress) and head scarf

    Sounds a bit like Dubai (which I loved), but a lot stricter in culture. Lexy
