"Look me in the eye VS impoliteness??" Top 5 Page for this destination Saudi Arabia Local Custom Tip by Manyana
Saudi Arabia Local Customs: 97 reviews and 78 photos
Women generally are private and protective and they don't like men to gaze at them or look them directly in the eye. You'd often see Saudi men generally look away when talking to women, depending if they sense a woman is over-protective or not. Some women will consider men who look them directly in the eye as bad guys with bad intentions.
This is less like to be common in more open cities like Jeddah or the western region for its cultural diversity and reception of pilgrims from all over the world.
The problem is one cannot tell the difference if this woman is protective or that man is innocent!!
So just take this into account
