      Okay, since Saudi Arabia is one of the richest areas on the Earth, how expensive would it be to stay in say Dubai for a couple of nights?
      I know it's a pain, but if you could give me a rough estimate in US dollars that would be great.
      I'm really curious since the country has so much money, what the cost of living is there.

    As a single woman, I'll pass on the visit to Saudi thanks.  I can think of more relaxing places to go on holiday!

    What kind of beer do you folks drink?  Is there a Saudi version of Budweiser, or are you more of a micro-brew country?

      There is a saudi version of all of our beers... NAB ... Non-Alcoholic-Beer...

      However, just take off the cap, add about 5-6 teaspoons of sugar, the beer still contains a little yeast, but just in case add one grain of ordinary bakers yeast, leave bottle to stand for 3-4 weeks in a warm room (easy in saudi) with lid loosely placed on top then place back in fridge to drink at your leisure...

      Saudi's also will sit in their cars for 6-8 hours on a wed afternoon to go over the bridge into Bahrain, not sure why, It can't be the thousands of prostitutes that sit in the bars where they can sit and drink till the early hours of the morning, I am sure that they only go to visit family and to enjoy prayers in the mosques in Bahrain!

    Oh, I should mention the visa process... It's a pain in the ass, takes a long time and they make it as difficult as possible..

    When I last took my visa to their embassy in the UK (the third time for a visa) I was informed that they had changed their process and I had to apply through an agency, of which there was a list to use on their website, could he just give me the list.."no", why did they not say the process has changed on the website? "i Dont know", I informed him that I was now going to miss my flight as they had just effectively added an extra week to the time to get the visa to which I was informed "GOOD, We don't want you foreign scum in our country...."  Needless to say I was manhandled from the building by security when I reacted to this comment!!!!

    I brought my wife to join me here, I applied for the visa here in saudi, I supplied all of the required paperwork with all of the required stamps, but the official still refused and suggested that the only way I could get the approval was to pay the equivalent of over a $1000 before he would issue it!!!!

    Leaving the country is fun also... I have a few stories but I dare not share them in this forum as I still live here!!!!!

    I think Saudia Arabia is a country in the middle east that is rich in oil. 

    I could be wrong though.
