So that one drink could lose you a huge amount of money if you were expecting a few months tax free bonus at the end of a couple of years hard work there in Saudi.

It is also one of the most Hypocritical societies that I have ever encountered, in a society that preaches constantly about not using alcohol and the sanctity of the virtue of their women, the queue to leave the country at the end of the working week over the bridge between Khobar and Bahrain is at least 4 to 5 hours long.

The queue is mainly Saudis, and I don't think they are all going to Bahrain to visit the Mosques there.

Living and Working in Saudi Arabia (KSA) is nothing like anywhere else in the world that I have ever had the opportunity to work.

They enforce their rules to the letter and the punishments are severe.

For a foreigner anyway, most Saudis in the Kingdom would just get their wrists slapped and be told to be good!

You also have to remember that your employment is linked to your behavior, if you were arrested for drinking or womanizing for instance, you would not only find yourself jailed and deported you would also lose your job and any accrued benefits that you may have.

That being said; with high wages and generous benefits it is a hard place to ignore for employment and many expats (myself included) would rather endure the restrictions placed on us to work there and make that extra tax free cash.

Just in case you are ever fortunate enough to visit Saudi Arabia or are going to be working in Saudi Arabia I summarize the main rules, regulations and laws that you need to know below; Please whatever you do follow these rules, especially in public places as Saudis take their traditions and their religion very seriously.

They are not known for their leniency towards foreigners who break their laws and their prisons are for punishment not reform.

But maybe I am wrong, maybe if you visit the bars there you can let me know!

Even within the kingdom it is very easy to find just about anything you want, on or off the compounds where most expats live.

Most Saudis that I know have a bottle of two of the strong stuff hidden away for when they have visitors.

So it is very much a case of "do as we say, not as we do" when working in Saudi Arabia.
