    I don't know much, but the Saudi's follow Wahhabism, the strictest form of Islam, formed in the 18th Century. Wahhabism has its critics, including me. One thing though, a conservative lifestyle is expected!

    Was there one on transit when I was like 6 or 7, I distinctly remember that we weren't allowed out of the airport and the airport officials being quite rude.

    I think the main thing to watch out for is the culture shock.

    I was in Yemen for a few days in 2009, also on transit, a beautiful country but absolutely mental. Armed soldiers, big weapons strewn across the streets, crazy driving, disorganized airport officials. Case in point, I was being laughed at by locals for wearing shorts. I was to learn later that they probably thought I was gay.

    The experience was literally a blur, Saudi Arabia won't be as crazy as that I don't think but its important to brace yourself I guess.

    You're getting a lot of posts from people who have never been there. I spent a few months there and while it's different, the people are quite nice and it's generally an okay place to live. They have a lot of foreign workers so chances are that you will find people with similar interests.

    Saudi Arabia loves Caucasian / Western people (Information came from a Muslim Indonesian Professor residing in Saudi Arabia) so if don't look like an Asian you should fine. Watch out for the weather and sandstorm tho... and Good luck
