The Saudi Arabia guide

Latest articles

At the point when oil export started in the late 1930s, the regressive desert state experienced an abrupt rise thanks to its dynamic workforce. Saudi Arabia had neither the mastery nor the human resources to sustain its rapidly developing economy. Since then, the country opened its doors to foreign manpower. In 1970, 1 million foreign workers were employed in Saudi Arabia. Today, the foreign population accounts for around 10 million workers, making up about 33% of the country's population as a whole.

Finding accommodation is one of the major steps to relocating to a new city. Riyadh, being the capital of Saudi Arabia, is considered the busiest city in the country thanks to a large number of visitors coming and staying there almost all year round, especially for Umra and Hajj. Therefore, local authorities, hotels and property developers do their best to provide the best environment for travellers, and expats planning to relocate there, regardless of the duration of their stay.

A city of opportunities in all kinds, Riyadh is a fantastic place to live in. Whether you're moving there alone or with your family, discover the various outdoor activities that are awaiting you in your free time.

The city of Riyadh flaunts eateries, bistros and bars of various patterns for all tastes and budget. In general, these places are the most sought after by expats looking to discover both international and ethnic cuisines. If you're one of them, let's embark on a culinary tour of the Saudi capital city.
