Expatriate life in Saudi Arabia can be comfortable and routine if teachers are aware of daily customs and adhere to all rules and laws. Whether teachers are within a compound for foreigners or elsewhere in the country, being respectful of customs and rules is expected at all times. There are many shopping malls across the country. Usually, women teaching in Saudi Arabia will be living on designated female school compounds, and employers will coordinate group trips to buy items at different shopping malls. However, be aware that there are no change rooms, so trying clothing is not an option. Saudi Arabia is a family-oriented society with strict lawful and social restrictions.
