For instance, if you are travelling to the city centre from the airport, or to a surrounding suburb, keep a close eye on the side of the highway - you may stumble upon some beautiful, majestic camels in their prime element. Stop by the road if you can, and take some happy snaps, or just simply adore them by observing their activities.
If you have a friend who can sponsor you to enjoy the benefits of ARAMCO Camp, then you're in for a treat.
From libraries to cinemas to swimming pools, this place has you covered. ARAMCO has set up camps in Dhahran, Ras Tanura, Qatif and Abqaiq, each highly equipped with the best recreational facilities one can be grateful to have access to in this country.
There are seating areas provided on the beach, some equipped with a barbeque stand. This is the perfect opportunity to host a gathering with friends and family when the sun is shining and the water is glimmering.
The Dammam Corniche is another picturesque place to visit. There are date palm trees everywhere. And there is a lot of walking space. Friday morning is the best time to visit, as it won't be too crowded, and you can even fancy having a delicious breakfast at Kudu Restaurant - waffles, anyone?
Al-Marjan Island is the ultimate spot for picnics - it's about 40 minutes out of Dammam, but it's worth the drive. There are seagulls and pelicans, boat rides offered at affordable prices and the excellent Gulf weather to complement a great outing.
