To live in Saudi Arabia, prices are very high for one person, you can spend the money on yourself and enjoy a decent life, but if you want to save a little, you will need many sacrifices, such as housing and healthy food ,you will have to live in shared accommodation with others and eat cheap street food.

Hi all-

Hired for job beginning in August. Income tax free, most expenses are taken care of, no rent, no electric bills, no water and sewer bills, no Internet contracts, no purchase of furniture or appliances including washer, dryer, microwave and flat screen TV, no contributions to medical, dental and vision premiums, transportation is provided so no need for car, insurance, gas, maintenance on a car. SAR- 189,484 yearly. Thoughts on how much I would be able to save based on cost of living in Jeddah?

Thanks!
