Nope, Saudis are not vampires…but it seems like they have the same life style minus the blood sucking. Due to the hot weather in Saudi Arabia; people prefer to go out at night where is much cooler and start their “day” at 9 pm. For people who eat lunch between 4 pm to 6 pm, then Saudi dinner must be at least at midnight; therefore Saudis will stay after dinner Chit-chatting, playing cards until they digest their food, then they will go to sleep.
But you may ask, “What about those Saudis who work during the day?” Well, after work they will come back and take a long nap until the night, then be awake all night. It seems like some Saudis like to live their lives backwards.
So if you decide to go out in the afternoon, don’t think that people have evacuated the country, just pass by neighborhoods and listen to Saudis snoring. Go out at midnight to shopping malls or pass by the beach, and you will think that is just 7 pm where people are active and driving around the city. So when you ask a Saudi when are you heading to bed? The answer will be when the sun comes up.
