Cost of Living between Perth and Jeddah

Comparison chartThe cost of living here is considerably lower than WA.  For instance last night we decided to have a drumstick from the compound store. I was surprised that it only cost 2SR for 2 drumsticks which is about 50 cents AUD.  It certainly is a great way to save money here.  No wonder 83% of the people here are expats.

Below is some information from a great website which does comparisons of any country in the world on various stats such as pollution, prices, health…   It is a great site to do comparisons before venturing on holidays or relocating to another country.
