Luggage and bags:
Have as many peices as u like, just make sure to keep them light weighted,,, I discovered that the people who deal with luggage in the saudi airport are so inathletic and fragile... and would treat a heavey suit case roughly which might get ur good piece ruined ... ( what a tip ha ?)
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If it's ur first time to Saudi.... just keep the lower part long and the upper part high if a female... dont worry much,, u would eventually need an abaya to solve the dressin prob.
when choosing your Abaya,, choose a cool material that would keep u cool during the daytime,, and and another for night probably a dressy one.... it all depends on ur social life...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If your a women,just prepare to be wearing a conservative clothes,and after arriving you will need to buy the local women`s over dress called(Abayah)the head covers are not really necessary if you`re not a Muslim.
If you have a favourite T-Shirt bring it with you,,other wise all clothes/shoes are avaialble here,you might find wearing sandals is the best for our hot weather.
