Basic Overview of Saudi Arabia

Even as we all have heard about Saudi Arabia in one or the other context, the general knowledge most of us have about Saudi Arabia is probably pretty superficial ( as it was also in my case ).

Therefore, on this page I would like to share some basic information about Saudi Arabia.

Winter in Saudi Arabia

In the meantime, it has also become winter here in Saudi Arabia. Obviously, there is no snow, but the temperature has gone down significantly. I.e. during the night the temperature is in the range between 15°C and 20°C and during the day, it is between 25°C and 30°C - a range most probably most of us would describe as being perfect.

Sometimes in the morning, it is also a bit foggy here in the Eastern Region, as humidity moves inwards from the sea. They sometimes it may even give some rain, but I have not experienced this. So far, every day was a sunny day since I arrived here three months ago.

Geography & Population

Just as a simple comparison between Saudi Arabia and Switzerland in terms of their size with 2'149'700 km² vs. 41'300 km² :


And Saudi Arabia having a population of 28.2 million* inhabitants compared to 8.3 million* in Switzerland.

This corresponds to 13 inhabitants/km² in Saudi Arabia vs.
201 inhabitant/km²
in the case of Switzerland.
