"Get Well Soon!" Top 5 Page for this destination Riyadh Local Custom Tip by Cielo_Algaeed

Riyadh Local Customs: 72 reviews and 62 photos


Here in Saudi Arabia, visiting a sick family member, friend or relatives and wishing him/her to get well soon, chocolates, dates and arabic coffee are usually the things that a visiting person brings.

My sister in law just had her operation few days back and my hubby told me that we will visit her soon. I told him that we should bring her fruits, biscuits or milk ( these are the things that we ususally give in the Philippines) but to my surprised hubby told me that we will get her Belgian chocolates or cake. hmmmm....

In the photo is a sample of the chocolate present to wish her "get well soon".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
