Hi, I will probably offered a position with a company in Jeddah within the next few months. I worked in Saudi over ten years ago ,firstly in the Al Khobar areafor a few years and then two years in Al Hasa so i have some experience of the country. Has Saudi changed much in this time ? i appreciate that Jeddah was similar back then to Khobar in that it was less restricted but i want to get a feel for the place again before i go. What are the best compounds in Jeddah for a single person to live on and is there still a discreet social scene within the compound walls . Any replies from western expats would be appreciated.
