I am a British citizen and I will be relocating to Riyadh for a job with a large consulting firm in the next few months. I am currently in the process of finding accommodation in Riyadh.
I have been looking at compounds however they seem extremely expensive. The prices that I have received are £30,000+ for a 2 bedroom apartment.
Are there any compounds that aren't as expensive?
If i was to decide not to stay in a compound what area's would be best? Ideally I would want to stay near expats areas which would be easier to make contacts and friends while working in KSA.
