12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. M. Tuck on 12 Jan. 2001
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent source of information for anyone even thinking of visiting or working in one of the Gulf States. It details everything from getting a visa to what sort of nightlife you can expect. Most helpful is the inclusion of a series of first-hand experiences of brave souls who have worked in the area, some for a number of years. Also gives useful websites, phone numbers etc.

Format: Paperback
What a waste of money this book is - written 7 years ago, Saudi has changed beyond belief in this time and is still changing every day, take it from somebody who lives and works here. nothing in this book is valid today, buy the latest edition and get the latest information which sadly too is out of date. Just get the job and get yourself out here - You wont regret the warmth and friendliness of these people

A must for anyone moving to the GCCs 14 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
My husband and I are going to move to Kuwait soon for work and we needed as much information as possible on living conditions there. Let me tell you that it's not easy to find useful info on Kuwait and we have found it in this book. If you are planning to move to any of the Gulf countries than this book is a must!
