Great Coastal View of the Persian Gulf
Persian Gulf separates the Middle East from South Asia. This extension of the Indian Ocean can be seen in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom and shared by other countries famous for great beach escapades such as in Dubai, Qatar, and Bahrain. In Saudi Arabia, it can be viewed in Al Khobar.
Al Khobar can be accessed thru DMM or King Fahd International Airport in Dammam which is a north of Al Khobar. You can also get there by bus from Bahrain thru SABTCO via the King Fahd Causeway. When I arrived in this country, I’ve been exploring this place but I didn’t get the chance to take photos since they told me that taking pictures in the Kingdom is illegal and will give you one-way ticket to jail. But now that I have known this country for quite some time, I have observed that people regulating the law are having lax control about photo capturing in public. It might be due to increasing tourists and foreign investors in the country and might as well, the country is opening up its door on tourism since a lot of travel agencies is offering tour packages in different part of the Kingdom. Besides, they will also profit from tourism like any other countries have been doing. Anyway, in Al Khobar, you can view the coast of the Persian Gulf by visiting the Corniche and the Half Moon Bay. It is for free and also a great place to have picnics, bonding, and even do fishing.
Al Khobar has succeeded other cities of the country. It is more established compared to others. It is a growing metropolis. Skyscrapers stand proud from east to west, definitely a big city not to miss if you happen to drop by in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
