Yes, we have lived in Saudi, and we travel there, my husband regularly, and I go with him when convenient. as you know, there are many restriction and much conform to their cultural, but you can have an interesting time, non the less. There are some good restaurants in Riyad, go to the souks (markets) shop for antiques, bedouin jewelry, rugs, etc, and be sure to bargain hard. I advice you not to drive yourself, but hire a driver. Life can get complicated if you are in an accident. Also, don't speak to any of their ladies, dress conservatively, be aware of prayer times (everything closes) take and drink NO alcholol. Weather will still be hot. We found the desert facinating--ask some of the Expats where to go. You can visit a bedouin encampment if you go with a tour group. Go to Durea (sp?) which is the old capital, El kharj, the Red sands, Grafitti Rock, D.Q., the camel trail up the escarpment, Wadi Hanifa, Taif, The Bata Souk (don't go on Friday morning as that is when they have executions, if there is to be one). Talk to the locals, as many Saudi's are english speaking. All the shops are open in the eveniing, but some are reserved for women only--don't even think of going there. A strange and wonderful culture, and we still have many good friends there...will return also in the late fall. Email us if you need more information.
