lol lool @ the new Westfield, man that place rocks!! Im there chilling atleast once a week after work, and to be honest, even when i am there, i already miss it thinking that soon i will be in Riyadh!!
If you have young children pre school you won't be any better off here in Riyadh compound housing is difficult to come by most have waiting lists. Getting about without your husband would involve taxis unless you were on a compound where they have cars to hire or bus transport to the Malls. Cost of housing anything up to 30000 SAR per month on a compound.
30,000 SAR per month?!?!
and @ Saimans; you state it is difficult to get an accomodation at that price, crikey!!! That's like £5000 per month on compound, which could get you a neat gaf in Belgravia (Central London)!
Just wanted to reach out to any Investment Bankers based in Saudi Arabia! I wonder if there are many investment professionals from the UK/States or other places, migrated to Saudi Arabia for work purposes!?
