    • Life in the Compounds

      by Wowzer Online Now Apr 17, 2006 at 2:05 AM


      I'm a brit who'll be moving to Saudi (Al Jubayl) in the next few months. Can anyone tell me what Compounds are good for a bachelor. I know there isn't alot to do in Saudi esp for a single guy so i'm hoping to at least get a good compound, although i'm half Egyptian I would find life hard, seeing as i've lived in London most of my life.

      My contract is with a subcontractor to SABIC.

      What is there to do in the compounds?

      Also do the the compounds have internet access, is it easy to get broadband internet access in your homes in Saudi?


      ANy replies will be greatly welcomed.
