New members of the Saudi Arabia forum, introduce yourselves here - 2019

hi marinel! i havent done the jedd-jordan route yet,
but i did a Solo trip Amman-Dammam by saptco last 2018.

im interested to go back to jordan and cross by saptco to/from.

pls keep me posted about your trip.


Can you advice on the trip that you had with saptco to amman? As there is no direct bus to amman from riyadh so will there be anything from other destinations? Need your suggestions and your experiences here. I am planning to travel during Hajj holidays.


Originally from Philippines but currently residing in Riyadh. Working as IT Service Desk Officer in one of Islamic Bank.

I'm moving with my family in January 2020 but my husband will go several times until the end of the year and he will take some of our stuffs. Does any one know a good self storage in Riyadh?

And what about the bests compound to families? I like the Al Nakhla.. is it a good one?

thank you!

Hi all. I am a Surgeon, mother of four from Greece and I am thinking of moving with family to Saudi, maybe Khobar-Dammam region. Any Greeks or expat female doctors in the area?

hi suribhai!
how are you? i only took Amman --> Dammam saptco bus.
but from what i know, there IS a SAPTCO (wed/ sat only) and JETT (Mon/ Thurs only)  bus from riyadh to amman. a friend of mine and his wife were able to buy tickets before when they plan to go to Jordan. they were from Riyadh too.

here's a link that might help: … lang=en-US

Hi Mari_JO, I called SAPTCO and they said they dont have any bus from saudi going to amman so i been to Azizhia and found few private bus companies who is charging 400-500 SAR from Riyadh-Amman, However i got Flynas for 800 SAR and my return am planning through bus coz they said it would be around 200-300 only.

Hello my name is Catherine I am primary teaching in Jeddah. I have lived in Qatar for five years.

hi, welcome to Jeddah and eid greetings. which school are you teaching, is it good for 5 years old kid, i want to enroll my daughter.

Assalamu'alaikum everyone...

This is me from Indonesia wishing to migrate to KSA InshaAllah

I'm an Expat wife in Jubail. Looking to make friends with female expats or expat wives in Jubail.

Hi Terry (assume it is Terry?),
I'm supposed to be moving to KSA myself in a month or two assuming all checks go through etc.  I have all the same questions you have, so if I get any feedback from my HR or future colleagues I can share.  Btw, I think 75k housing allowance seems quite good, I hear you can get a nice 1 bedroom apt on a good compound for 60 (but depends on your needs) - but the more expensive ones have better facilities etc.  Is this your first time in the Middle East?  I live in Dubai so am used to it, although Riyadh will be another thing!  Anyway, keep in touch if you'd like.  Best, Marcelle

Moving in Sept to Rio. Looking for a start for a good compound around Mursalat (or 20 min drive to it)

Which subject(s) can you teach?

hi suribhai,

maybe they cancelled all trips to amman? or still too early to book (usually booking opens a month or 2)
as per my experience, i did fly into amman and took bus from amman to saudi (dammam) and it took around 24hours). we left 12noon and arrived 12noon the next day. many stops/ toilet breaks in between. the seats were a bit cramped (i occupied 2 seats) , but over all the trip was ok and i never once felt unsafe, considering i was the only female left on the bus around midnight. haha!
im planning to do a roundtrip bus trip in the near future and your feedback on your bus ride experience will be appreciated.

Hi Mam,
I need some suggestion on retrieving my old bank statements. Thank you.
