    Jiddah Tourist Traps

    What makes Jeddah special is the old city, where History engage with current life. Most tourists will enjoy walking around the old town and its narrow blocks. Watching people from all over walking with their traditional cloths (Specially from Africa and Asia). Shopping for antics and inexpensive products made by locals or imported from...

  • Seef Mall & Shopping

    Bahrain Tourist Traps

    Again - another hint for tourists - rather than a trap. Go to the tourist office/ handicraft shop located at 'bab al bahrain' (translation: gateway to bahrain) and ask for tourist information. I went this morning and came out with 8 useful pamphlets, a decent tourist map and a lovely hard back book about Bahrain. I suggest you take this as your...

  • Driving in Jiddah

    Jiddah Tourist Traps

    Never drive in Jeddeh with your own car! especially if going for the first time. Personally as I driver, i will never recommend it! No fixed charges for Taxi , each will take you to the same place for a different charge. For me, i used to ask people at the hotel reception how much it will cost to go from here to specific place and they tell me...

  • Tree of life

    Bahrain Tourist Traps

    One of the most known touristic places in Bahrain is the Tree of Life. It´s said to be that it could have been the place where the Garden Eden had been. It´s nothing more than one of the bigger trees (it´s not the only one!) in the semi dessert. The place is like most of the places dirty and ... just a tree! When you drive there with your own car...


    Kuwaitis view themselves as good businessmen. To be fair, there is a whole shopping mall inside the airport if they let you go outside security. You have to get a visa for that and they hassle you when you come back through security. You have to kind of lie to get one. So there is BIG HINT number 1 that they don't see the potential for lots of...

  • Arabic Dictionaries

    Don't bother buying an Arabic dictionary outside the Middle East as they are ridiculously expensive. In England a good dictionary costs £70 (US$100 approx), I bought the same one in Syria for about $10. They are quite bulky, so leave plenty room in your luggage to avoid excess baggage fines at the airport!!!Look out for Hans Wehr and Al-Mawrid...
