Living in Dammam is kind of expensive and there are lot of cafes, malls and places to visit here. People mostly go out to a get-together at night. The temperature here is above or more or less near 35°c.

If someone, goes to my city he or she should be considerate of the hot and humid environment he or she shall face. it is better to bring more of summer related clothes than winter clothes because it is hardly cold in my city. Other than the attire, dehydration sometimes can be an issue. So, it is better to carry a water bottle around.

The thing that one should consider is the climate. The average temperature in summer is about 50 degree Celsius. The cost of living is less when compared with other cities in the Middle east. There is less religious freedom. But even in this adverse conditions people live here happily.

Dammam is peaceful and productive. It has a lot of great places where you can shop, dine and relax. People are friendly and the place is clean. We live in a place where people help each other. We have plenty of outdoor activities like swimming, biking, yoga and going to the gym.

Choosing Dammam City would be a nice decision because it has an ocean view and it’s near the Kingdom of Bahrain (just a short drive).

Dammam is not perfect to move to. If everybody wants to come to Saudi Arabia, he or she should go to Riyadh because it’s more wonderful and easy to get a job. But if anyone want to move to Dammam it would ether good to be close to next countries such as Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and United Arab Emirates.
