    Riyadh and other ciies have numerous modern markets for groceries and general merchandise as well as a few shopping malls with specialty shops of all kinds. All stores and shops close during prayer time, which lasts about 15 to 20 minutes. In larger establishments, non-Muslim customers may remain inside, although they are actually locked-in. Among traditional Middle Eastern goods, copperwares are priced much like clothing. Gold jewelry is a particularly good buy in Saudi Arabia.
    There are a number of large book stores in Jeddah, Damamam & Khobar Riyadh. Fourth estate and the publishing industry is subjected to censorship. There are modern supermarkets in almost every part of Riyadh. These carry fresh meat, produce, and dairy products as well as a wide variety of American and European food products--in cans, jars, and packages, both dried and frozen

    What to buy: Gold electonic goods... arabic cosmetic materials, pottery etc

    What to pay: Quite expensive
