Default Moving to KSA - relocation tips? advice? things you wish you had known before?

Hello everyone,

My partner and I will be moving to Riyadh in a couple of months and would love to hear any insights from those that have made a similar move.

Are there any things you wish you had known before? Any tips, suggestions, mistakes to avoid? Is it safe to use a VPN? How's the internet speed over there? Any items you wish you would have brought from the UK but are not available over there? Any good relocation companies? (not planning on moving furniture but do have a few cubic meters of stuff I'd like to take with)

Thanks for your help in advance!
