I'll be moving for a new position in Petro Rabigh with my family (wife and 2 kids) soon... The information provided by my employer Petro Rabigh about the compound provided by them is not enough to build a big picture of the place... Is really hard to find anything on youtube or other web sites...
Some people say that KAEC is a very good option and I kind of like the idea as the World Academy school has a partnership with Petro Rabigh that offers a very good discount and perfectly fits the education allowance provided by the employer. My house allowance if I decide to live outside compound is approximately 80K SAR but I'm ok to put some additional money and live on a better and more comfortable place for the kids.
With that in mind I have two questions:
Is Petro Rabigh Aramco Compound in Rabigh really worst than other compounds in north Jeddah like Al Basateen, Azzam, Arabic homes and etc that justifies a 2h drive each way every day?
Is there any kind of western compounds on KAEC these days? I can't find a thing about living there. Is there any Gated Communities, Villas or anything else more for Expats?
