I have given instructions to get to any address but actually is too hard even in my native language.

As my town is a little big, some foreigners don't know the name of the places. So , I sometimes give directions for them and they say "Thank You".

Fortunately, nobody can get lost in my town, because it's a small country and today technology help us to find our way by using google map or GPRS.
But if you go to the mountains, because my Country well knows about the wonderful mountains that are frequently visited by tourists you can get lost, in that green paradise.
I remember last year, I gave some direction and advice to some tourist that were interested to visit mountains. But first, I researched the location, just to be pretty sure that I will help them with right information.

It isn't easy to get lost in my town because the roads here are wide and people follow the traffic lights very well. If you travel to my town by motorbike, you can arrive anywhere with just an internet-connected smartphone with the Google map app. Or you can catch a taxi at Long Khanh Market and ask the driver to take you to arrive at the place that you want.


Here are the instructions to get to my house. Are you going to take your car? If you take the car, drive straight on Almatar St. until you get to Alothaim Mall. Drive after Bus Station and take the exit to Al Gaysh St. You drive down the road there till the last of it. Then, turn left with the circle. It's the first big building. You will find my apartment No.1 on the first floor.

yes. one day we have been in an old and traditional house suddenly i have saw two visitors have been confuse and was talking together.
so they started walking and came to first point . they turned around themselves. so i showed exit board .

In my town it is dufficult to get lost, because the city where i live isn`t very big and roads and steets are wide enoght. There are no many places. But the place where my home located is quite confused. Because many of them look the same so you can get lost here. Sometimes I meet the people who cannot find some particular house so I give direstion to them if I know.
