5.0 out of 5 stars Lonely Planet excellence, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saudi Arabia (Lonely Planet) (Paperback)
I have read it before going tothe KSA and now, it has its permanent place on the coffee table in my apartment!
Although a bit outdated version, it is still very much up to date!!!
It is a hard to get lonely plant book, I have searched many libraries and thankfully found this one on Amazon!
I would truly recommended to anyone going to Saudi Arabia.

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Saudi Arabia (Lonely Planet) (Paperback)
This book tells you everything you would want to know about Saudi Arabia - and that is why the book is so thin. I thought my 8 months is Saudi was one of the best experiences in my life, but it was bloody tough. The bedouins, the religion, the culture, the way the foreign workers are treated (i.e. non-Saudis), the muttawa, the atmosphere - all together it created a suffocating mix. You have to build a wall around yourself to protect your own sanity. I'm an open person given to trying new things and as laidback as they come, but Saudi gets under your skin. This book doesn't quite tell you that and I don't think any book is able to really - it's something that everyone who has lived there knows, but you can only understand what I mean if you spend time there. Enjoy!
