    Planes on Plinths

    by iwys Updated Jan 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Instead of statues, Dhahran has planes on concrete plinths. There is a row of three of them at the old airport, which is now the Air Base, and two more at KFUPM. The planes are old Saudi Air force jets, including a Hunter and a Lightning.

    Al-Rashid Mall is one the most prominant shopping malls of eastern region of Saudi Arabia. Almost every thing is available but with prices on a higher side. Usually people enjoy eating at the top floor food area.

    Camels in the distance

    If you are lucky you will see some camels while you are out four-wheelin. I wouldn't get too close as the owner of the camels wouldn't appreciate you scaring these "ships of the desert".

    Saudi Arabia is an awesome setting for a beautiful sunset as you will see in my pictures. We have enjoyed many right near our home, as well as around Dhahran. They really are an amazing site.

    you have to be a Aramco employee to enter the compound

      VT is not 'wrong'. All VT pages and tips are written by ordinary members, not by VT staff. It seems pretty obvious to me that the tips written about Aramco compound were written by an employee or an employee's relative. Perhaps you could send the member a message and ask him/her to clarify that point?
