As i am due to move to Al Khobar in approx 18 weeks I have been avidly reading and digesting any information I can get on compound life and facilities.
To my dismay a lot of the information. Can be 3,5,7 years old and reading through them what could of been a lovely compound once upon a time has now degenerated.
I am relocating with my husband and as the children have all grown up it will be just the two of us. The compounds all seem to offer the same facilities but the accommodation differs quite a bit along with the general up keep of compounds.
i know one of the places we will be offered is Oasis but from what I can gather there are two of them made up of different compounds.
I have looked online at zamil, Canary and rushaid although you can't believe the glossy photo gallery after reading some reviews!
Aramco has been mentioned although i would prefer a smaller, quieter compound.
I would like to hear from people who live in these compounds and hear what they have to say as it appears when those who have asked questions move to KSA very few come back online to pass on their experiences.
I'm an optimist and so will make the best of whatever the situation may be and honestly can not wait to get out there...however always nice to have the heads up before hand 😊
