Default Info Needs of Settled and New Expats to Saudi?

Hi guys.

For all those expats in Saudi/ Riyadh.

I was wondering if you would like share with me your needs relating to Information in Saudi/ Riyadh on events, places to eat, other essential info you feel you would be usefull for you. Areas can include lifestyle, fashion, events (expats or locals) culinary or anything else I may have missed out.

Do you think a webiste dedicated to both locals and expats (Arabic and English) covering various elements as mentioned above would be worthwhile launching in Saudi with focus on particular cities if required?

Feel free to comment?

Thanks.
DS.

Yes i think this could be a good idea. Deepending on the views shared of course
Riyadh is expanding at an alraming fast rate so many new projecting comming up.
Eating out plenty of nice places to go on an evening.
Just a shame about the traffic,
Riyadh for a most of the day now is grid locked.

good idea but wouldn't this sort of go against the security advice to Westerners of keeping a low profile and not having predictable schedules etc?

where to get laid seems to be the biggest concerns of many ex-pats in saudi.

if you can provide this kind of information I can see you having a very successful website and then due to its popularity being soon banned by the saudi firewall

Hmm, I see where you are comming from.

I guess it would be then up to the individual to go out or not. I have seen many European and US expats out and about in Malls and Local Areas where there are resturaunts (Tahlia and Thalateen to mention a few).

But since the site would focus on all residents in Riyadh (Locals, Expats be they western or non western) the audience would increase.
