Saudi Arabia has stretched landscapes, hilly mountainous areas, snowy lands, vast deserts, waterfalls, and beaches! Yes, Saudi Arabia is blessed with all. However, as I said there are some places that need special mentioning as they are among the best places to live in Saudi Arabia.
To be specific, Eastern Saudi Arabia comprises of basically three cities namely Dammam, Dhahran, and Al Khobar. These cities, which are also known as the Tri-cities are most loved by the people of Saudi Arabia (both local and expats) and we will tell you why this is the best place to live in Saudi Arabia.
The locals there are too good and Friendly
The Eastern part of Saudi Arabia is rich in oil and thereby the initial settlement of expats was towards these cities. Through the years and decades, the people there have been able to get adjusted with the environment and treat others openly.
Their attitude with the outsiders is amazing and no one feels an “outsider” there. Attitude wise, people who have been living in the Eastern Province are amazing due to which I treat it the best place to live in Saudi Arabia. Recommended: 8 memorable things about Khobar
