Acacia valley

by rajsiv27

How to go to Acacia valley in Ar riyadh from Riyadh city centre?

Re: Acacia valley

by abcdemad

Is't this what you need ?
=============================

The thick green line of trees along Acacia Valley have made this a very popular picnic spot, especially after rain, when you will find the wadi full of flowers and flowering shrubs, butterflies, lizards, dragonflies, and birds.



The Edge of the World is a rock-framed "window" with a wonderful view of the valley below. It is about 180 km North-East of Riyadh. Edge of the World is located up straight from the Acacia Valley. This place is also called the rock framed window because from the cliffs you can see a dramatic view of the plains below.



Acacia Valley is part of the old Darb al Hijaz, which ran between Nejd and the Hijaz, using the course of the Wadi Hanifah to cut through the Tuwaiq escarpment. Darb means way and this route was used for centuries by travelers moving east-west across Arabia. For centuries there hve been settlements along the bed of the Wadi Hanifah and the valley has always been heavily cultivated. You can still see, on the rock terraces above the villages, the round stone watch-towers which used to guard the approaches. One of these settlements, al Unaynah (sometimes Ayenah, or Oyaynah), was the home of Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab, the reformer, who was born there in 1705. The valley is still a rich agricultural area today: fields of fruit and vegetables line the road which runs through the villages.



The lush green trees along Acacia Valley have made this a very popular picnic spot. The whole area is covered with huge acacia trees, wild flowers, birds and different insects.



The Acacia Valley is still a very rich agricultural area as of today. You can see fields with vegetables and fruits which runs through the small villages.



As far as your eyes can reach, view of the edges are endless with totally different views at each point.

IQAMA (Residence Permit)

by Cielo_Algaeed

Note:
This general tip is not my fondest memory here in Riyadh but this is an important reminder for those who plan to stay or work here in Saudi Arabia.

Many questions in the forum have been asked about this Permit and so we find it important to share what we know on how and when to apply it and who are the ones qualified/entitled or required.

1. Any expat/dependent of expat working in Saudi Arabia are required to obtain a RESIDENCE PERMIT or the so called IQAMA.

2. The VISIT VISA (1 - 6 months) is NOT allowed to avail the Residence Permit / IQAMA not unless the visit visa is converted to a working visa. The visit visa can be converted to a working visa even if you are in the Kingdom through a special permit.

3. The government fee for the IQAMA is 500SR per year. Maximum 2 years can be availed. As for the foreign wife of a Saudi, maximum of 4 years.

4. The employer has to be the one to process the IQAMA.

5. The processing time is usually 1 working day.

REMINDER:
Pls. always bring your IQAMA with you coz this will serve as your only valid IDENTIFICATION CARD in the Kingdom.

Arabic Common Expressions

by toni28

Inshalla (arabic language), I was confused when I heard this word at the very first time, in the hospital, market and so from our Arabian friends. And I learnt after 3 months here in Riyadh that it means “ God willing or If Allah wills” they used this word even they speak in English as a traditional expression. My children pediatrician is often to use this word ( ex. Get well soon Inshalla , or Inshallah you will be back here next month ) they usually pronounced this word before or after they state a good wishes or said in the future situation.

As-salam’ alaikum – “Peace upon with you” another common expression that you can hear when you are in the Islamic country this greetings served as a traditional greetings, most everywhere public and private places or either answering the phone. When someone greets you this you will reply “wa’ alaikum as- salam”. It means “peace upon with you too”.

Customs !!!!

by asimk

Do not ignore Saudi customs regulations. The following items are strictly prohibited: alcohol, narcotics, pornography, pork products, firearms, natural pearls. Attempting to import them into Saudi Arabia carries severe penalties, ranging from confiscation & fines to imprisonment & deportation.

All international passengers will have their luggage inspected by customs officials. It pays to be helpful & patient: keep your passport handy & open all your cases & hand luggage for internal inspection. Magazines, videos & CDs may be retained for censorship & as this is time-consuming it is advisable not to carry such items unless absolutely necessary. Carrying chocolates can also cause delays whilst the ingredient list is inspected for added alcohol - do not attempt to bring liqueur chocolates into the country.
