thanks to br. osama, with ramdom / surprise attacks anywhere in KSA.

also looks like the inflation and living is not that easy these days. plus the dollar fall as it is linked with saudi riyal...


sad... why does he want to bomb his home country?

Yes! it is true, if u are a bachelor then dubai is the best place to live & for family there won't be a better place that Suadi(Riyad or Jedda) coz cost of living expenes for family in Dubai is very high. it is 7:3 ratio between Dubai & Saudi

Assalamalaikum to all Hyderbadis leaving across the world.

Living in Saudi arabia is a challenge in itself, everytime new experiences. Iam working in Dammam since last 11 years.its good to be here, atleast you are safe and very close to religion. and ofcouse we have Mecca and Madina, i used to go every 3 to 4 months or maximum in six months to Mecca to perform umrah and also visit to Madina frequently. so it means simoultaneusly we are living in good and same atmosphere.

In jeddah - we have so many areas for hyderabadis like 1. Sharfiya - jahan per you will find so many bekaaars. lambi lambi phekna...and no job. just waiting for the good opportunity and it never comes.

Aziziz - Lot of Hyderabadis family used to stay here. we have so many hyderabadi restns. like shadab, and parwaaz.

RIYADH :- Batha and Hara -

DAMMAM - Seiko and hydrabadi Galli

AL-KHOBAR - Subekha and Thubah 16 street.

in subeka - you will find so many hyderabadi restaurants like SHAMA RESTAURANT, AZEEM HOTEL, NAYAAB HOTEL, MECCA HOTEL.

Take care and have a nice day

Allah hafiz

If you are muslem - then it is very good to live in saudi arabia.

otherwise - life looks like hell for non muslem.

As for as saving money is concerned, you can save alot compare with other countries.

Hi this is faisal
Well i am new to Hyderabad.com as well as to Saudi Arabia. Its been two months i have been to Saudi Arabia. Actually before coming to Saudi i had a very different picture of Saudi Arabia,but the moment i landed at the air port that picture broke down. The way the airport authority people treated us was shocking. They had no respect to the people of India. Anyway past is past is past. I am a certified it proffessional and since two months i have been searching for jobs in IT sector. But to my surprise there is no response from a single online sites where i have posted my resume.i would like to know from the people who are settled in saudi arabia and who are experienced, how to do job hunting in saudi arabia other than online sites. It will be of great help if any one can help me with this....................

salam alekum bhai, sab se pahele yeha forum ka thread dekh kar bahot khushi hui. socha apna bhi azhar khayal kardun is silsile mein. main saudi arab ke shaher jubail mein pichle 12 saalun se hun. yahan ki zindagi ko bahot khareeb se dekha hai. har tarha ki zindagi jiya hun. bus yun samajh lijiye tinke se pahad tak ka safar kiya hun. ab asal mudde ki baat jis ka unwan hai " life in saudi arabia".

is mein koi shak nahi ke yahan par paisa bahot hai. ek kachra uthane wala bhi yahan par itna kamata hai ke apne mulk mein koi engineer bhi nahi kamata hoga.
logoan ki zindagi guzar jaati hai apna khud ka makan banane mein, jabke yahan ki kamai se sirf do teen saal mein hi apna makaan ban jaata hai. aur ziyada saal guzar gaye to bhai ki padhai, bahen ki shadi, maa baap ka hajj sab kuch aap khud nibha jao ge.
magar mahenat karna shart hai. aap kahenge mahenat to hum yahan bhi karte hain, magar mere bhai jab aap mere aage ki line padhenge to aap ko pata hoga main kiya kahna chahta hun.

Pichle barah salun mein mainne ek hi cheez dekhi hai aur who yeh ke bhale hi yhan ka ek kachra chunne wala apne ek engineer se bhi ziyada kamata hai. Magar coin ka dusra rukh yeh hai ke yahan ka sab se ziyada kamane wala aadmi india ke ek kachra uthane wale se bhi ziyada pareshaan hai.
Saudi arab ke bare mein mere bhai “kulcha ne jo naqsha kheencha hai taqreeban sahi hai. Laikin ek baat wo batana bhool gaye ke kitne aise expatrieates hain jo yahan par waisi life style guzar rahe hain.

Ek normal employee se lekar ek senior manager ki post tak sabhi yahan par kama rahe hain. Laikin koi bhi yahan khud ke liye nahi kama raha hai. Kisi ko ghar banana hai to kisi ko bahen ki shadi karni hai. Kisi ko chote bhaiyun ka future banana hai to kisi ko apne maa baap ka ilaj karna hai. Itne hi kharchaon mein puri salary khatam hojati. Agar kabhi kuch bach bhi jaye to ghumne phirne, mauj masti karne ke liye waqt kahan hai.

Aaye aap ko batata hun yahan ki asal life.

Normaly 8 ghante ki duty hoti hai, ziyada paise kamane ke liye koi 2 ghante to koi 4 ghante overtime karta hai. Jis ko overtime nahi milta wo part time mein job karta hai (jo illegal hai. Pakde gaye to jail ya wapas india bhej dete). Kul mila kar har koi 12 ghante job karta hai daily. Room se company tak ka safar 20 se 25 minute hota hai magar alag alag location se aadmi ko uthana hota hai is liye 6 baje ki duty hai to kam se kam 5 baje ghar se tayyar ho kar nikalna padta hai. Yun ane jaane mein 2 ghante guzar jaate. Total 14 ghante.
Ab suniye 5 baje ghar se nikalne ke liye aap ko subah kam se kam 4 baje uthna padta. Kiyun k ek room mein kam se kam 3 se 4 log share karte hain. Ek flat mein 2 room aur sirf ek bath room hota hai jis mein toilet attached hota hai. (apne yahan ke jaisa nahi hammam alag aur toilet alag). Agar aap company ke camp mein hai to aur bhi musibat kyun ke waha bathrooms ek hi jaga hote hain sab ko line lagana padta. Ek to jaldi jaane ke liye aur dosra sardiyun mein garam pani ke liye. Nahi to thande pani se nahana padta. Is tarha Subha ka 1 ghanta add karlo total 15 ghante hogaye (baki 9 ghante bache).
Sham mein duty khatam hote hi bus aap ko le kar nahi nikalti balke sab ke aane ka intezaar karti hai jis mein 15, 20 minute aise hi guzar jaaje hai.
Ek baat to aap logon ko batana hi bhool gaya, bus ke bare mein. Employee ke liye jo bus hoti hai who air conditioined nahi hoti aur yahan ki garmi aur sardi ka kiya kahena garmi mein tempreture 45 se 50 degre to normal hota hai. Aur sardiyun mein 2 se 3 degre normal hota hai. Garmi mein office se ghar jaane tak halat kharab hojati. Jitna aap 12 ghante kaam karke thank jaate hain us se ziada 1 ghante ke bus ke safar mein thakawat ho jati hai.

Sham ko 7 bate jab thake hue ghar aate hain to fresh hone ke liye bhi bathroom ke baher line lagani padti hai. Uske baat agar company aap ko food de rahi hai to theek nahi to aap ko khud hi pakana padta hai. Akele khana banao to mahenga padta hai. Agar 2, 4 friends milkar khana banaye to kam kharcha aata hai. Milkar pakane mein ek benefit yeh bhi hota hai ke aap ko har roz kitchen mein jaane ki zaroorat nahi, har roz kisi ek ki bari hoti hai khana banana ki. Khair khana banana mein 1 ghanta guzar jaata. Khana banate hue hi apne room partners se aur dusre friends se baat cheet hojati hai. Khana khakar kuch der tv dekhe tak raat ke 10 baj jaate. Aur phir sone ka waqt ho jata.
Daily yahi rotine hoti hai. Weekly, Thursday aur Friday holiday hota hai. Koi company sirf Friday ko holiday deti hai to koi Thursday half day aur Friday full day holiday deti hai. Yeh depend karta hai companies par. Laikin jin ki salary kam hoti hai wo holiday mein bhi overtime karke paisa kamate hain.
Jin ko holiday hota hai who ya to film dekh kar ya phir so kar din guzarte hai take pure hafte ki thakan ek hi din mein mita de. Kiyun ke salary ka 80, 90 % hissa ghar bhej dete hain. Apne hath mein sirf itna hi rakhte hain jitna unka mahine ka kharcha hota hai jis mein khane ke alawa room ka rent aur mahine bhar ki dusri zarurat (soap, shampoo ect.).
is se ziyada rakhna chaho to bhi nahi rakh sakte salary milne se pahele hi ghar se phone aajata hai ke jaldi paise bhejo ghar ka rashan khatam hogaya hai. Aur sath mein koi na koi extra kharcha hota hai. Jaise eid, kisi ki bimari, zaati makan ki qist, bhai bahen ki padhai ki fees, ect. (aur bhi kai extra kharche aajate hain jin ko hum soch bhi nahi sakte).
