"Kamsa kamsa" Saudi arabia

August 12,2011: For every OFW here in Saudi Arabia, there is a place called "Kamsa kamsa"or old Saudi village.This is the best place to enjoy and relax.It becomes a favorite destination of our Kababayans for a family or group hangouts because of its best picnic grounds and beautiful sceneries that so unexpected in Saudi.Many finds it as a way to escape the strict way of living in the city since security in this area is not that strict like in any other place in Saudi.

The name kamsa kamsa is derived from the Arabic word kamsa which means five,because when you enter at the area you will pay 5 Riyals as an entrance fee.Kamsa kamsa is about 2 hours drive from Central Riyadh.As soon as you enter the place,you can feel the warm welcome of all our kakabayans and the presence of "pagsasaya" like you were in the Philippines (home sweet home).You can see here once more the true smile of a Filipino and rare valuable privacy.

Kamsa kamsa has many cottages for rent for as low as 50 riyals or 500 pesos .Wandering in the village is like going hundreds years back and you can see farmers in their fields, date trees and grasses.

During the early years, most of the Saudi's lived in a traditional type of a house made of mud or clay. As per the locals, inside a mud house, it is warm during the winter season while it is cold during summer.
