VISIT THE OLD CITY OF AL...

by FRANKV

VISIT THE OLD CITY OF AL DIRAYAH. IT IS ONE OF THE IMPORTANT HISTORICAL SITES IN THE KINGDOM AND PROVIDES A GOOD INSIGHT INTO HOW THE SAUDI DYNASTY LIVED BEFORE THE OIL RICHES CHANGED THEIR WAY OF LIFE. IT IS A PHOTOGRAPHER'S DELIGHT RIYADH IS A RAPIDLY GROWING CITY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT WHICH IS RIGHT ON THE PERIMETER WITH SPECTACULAR SCENERY. THE CITY HAS WIDE STREETS AND FAST FREEWAYS WITH INCREDIBLE SHOPPING SHOWCASING THE BEST THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER AS WELL AS OLD MARKETS (SOUKS)WITH LOTS OF MIDDLE EASTERN ATMOSPHERE.

The ruins of mud brick...

by Mushtie

The ruins of mud brick buildings and city walls at Diriyah some 20 miles to the northwest of the capital city of Riyadh contain the seeds that over the course of two and a half centuries have blossomed into the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Thousands of Saudis visit Diriyah every year to view firsthand the birthplace of modern Saudi Arabia and perhaps gain a better understanding of the people and place that contributed so greatly to forging a modern nation out of disparate tribes.

Life in the Magic Kingdom

by baronedivandastad

First of all, seek around the VT site as other members have much more complete pages. My personal favourite are kalaika and hjohnso4.
So how's life in the kingdom? it generally follows a different rhythm than in Europe (not sure about other parts of the world since I haven't spent too much time in there).

We Italians tend to share with the saudis a firefighting way of doing business and a starkly opposite, laid-back attitude towards things outside work. We also value family a lot, like the Saudis. Finally, we appreciate (and have!) very good food, like the Saudis.

What's different? sex segregation, absence of nightlife (see my tip) and lack of social contacts are the main differences that I spotted. However, you easily get used to the social life in there, and the impact is a lot less painful than you would think.

I'll add more as I learn - I'd love to hear your comments!
