This guidebook, fully revised and updated for the new Millennium, is intended for the expatriate or new employee and his family coming to live in Riyadh for the first time. It offers advice on what documentation, clothes and equipment are needed when arriving in Riyadh; on finding somewhere to live; and on choosing schools and seeking medical treatment. A section on shopping describes the shops, supermarkets, shopping malls and suqs supplying both the necessities and the luxuries of life, which can be so hard to locate in an unfamiliar environment. Other topics include transport and banking hours, entertainment, sightseeing and how to amuse children in Riyadh. Illustrated with views of the city, this handbook contains a map section, an appendix listing the telephone numbers of shops, hospitals and other services referred to in the text, and airline offices, compounds and national groups and embassies.
