    How safe is Saudi Arabia for expats? I am thinking of taking a 1 year contract and I am planning to buy a flat over there. But my fiancée says I am mad as it's too dangerous. Thoughts please of any one living there

    Saudi Arabia is one of the safest countries in my opinion. I lived in Riyadh for 6 months and I havent faced any problems.

    You will love it there and the best thing about this country is that there are no taxes, though there are many restrictions such as no alcohol, etc.

    Safety-wise, petty crime and the usual lousy drivers is all you have to worry about and as long as you keep a low profile and live simply, you'll do fine and appreciate the simplicity.
