  • Daily life is surrounded by the Islamic influence, where Muslims are called to prayer 5 times a day. Weekends are Friday to Sunday in Saudi Arabia due to Friday being the holiest day for Muslims
  • When greeting another person, Saudi men are known for their lengthy conversations when they meet another Saudi. They will ask about family in general and their health but they will never ask how another Saudi’s wife is doing as this would be seen to be very disrespectful
  • Women in Saudi Arabia are required to wear a black cloak called an abaya which covers their entire body except for their hands and face. Women also wear a face veil called a niqab. Foreign women in Saudi Arabia are not required to dress like this but they must cover their hair
