Saudi Arabia is a country rich in Middle Eastern culture. This is a great job opportunity for a Consultant Dermatologist; living and working in Saudi Arabia can be financially rewarding for consultants with the required qualifications.
There is a thriving expat community and a rich, historical culture that is unlike anywhere else. Many doctors also consider relocating there as it provides well for families who want their children to grow up in a Muslim and Arabic environment.
Al Khobar is located in Saudi Arabia's Eastern province. It is the Kingdom's 3rd largest city and the 5th largest in the Gulf co-operation council (G.C.C). It is served by King Fahd International Airport and thanks to the King Fahd Causeway is only 25 minutes drive to Manama City, the capital of Bahrain.
The cities of Saudi Arabia are modern and cosmopolitan, yet yield a tranquil atmosphere. Nightlife in public areas is scarce; however there are numerous parties and events held in expat compounds or private areas to make you feel more at home. Saudi Arabia is also host to various social functions, parties, dance and dramatic arts festivals as well as hundreds of literature events.
In the case of Khobar, with Bahrain being 30 minutes away it's more than possible to enjoy the nightlife offered in Manama, with a much less restrictive lifestyle and no prohibition.The culture revolves around the religion of Islam, but unlike other cities in the Kingdom there is a large proportion of expatriates particularly those that work with or for Saudi Aramco. This brings a slightly more relaxed approach to the conservative lifestyle that the Kingdom is synonymous with.
The diversity of people is uncountable, with individuals from all corners of the globe relocating to Saudi Arabia.
Everyone, no matter what their walk of life, seems to relish in the rich cultural history that Saudi Arabia has to offer.
