Programs: DL FO; TK *G; HHonors Gold; SPG Gold; Points but dirt with everyone else
Heading there for the first time in just under two weeks. Invited by King Saud University to conduct a week's worth of workshops. Four of the five days have workshops that run 1600-2100 only, but I'm not sure how much flexibility I'll have for getting around to see anything. Would be nice to see something other than the university and the Holiday Inn while I'm there.
Taxis are everywhere and relatively cheap. They should be able to get you there and back easily.
Agreed, but never underestimate the cluelessness of the average Riyadh taxi driver ! And yes, i know your white car with the "taxi" sign on the roof is a taxi. You don't have to beep me every 5 seconds

Hmmm ... doesn't seem to be so strictly enforced these days, particularly for westerners. I do tend avoid the malls at weekends though, mainly out of respect for the more traditional locals.
