I wanted to purchase , some dryfruits, a 32 inch lcd ( to bring lcd from saudi is cheaper) , and ofcourse if possible check for gold prices. All people suggested me one location i.e. balad. Go to balad and you will get everything. I took a taxi to reach to balad and stucked in traffic jam and then as usual hurried taxi driver dropped me as per his convenience. so try to avoid the peak hours like evening time.
you can find there a bif railway engin shape is created for a food chain hotel and asmall shopping centre. you can get a good deal for dryfruits here. rememeber to bargain well as they increase the rate onc they see you entering the shop.
make good negotiations and you can get good deal specially on pista,walnuts and dates. I saw n number of date types. they offer it for test before purchase. the dates rate range from 10 riyals to 120 riyals
Another thing is to search for gold shops where you can buy simcard size gold biscuit; lot of people purchase it and carry it to home. check it on the main street of balad and you can find lot more shops. Also gold chain can be seen and you can bargain and purchae. there is no charges for the making of ornaments
