What do I need to know about living in Al Khobar?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Al Khobar, they said:

"Expats considering retiring in Al Khobar should be aware that the country is a Muslim-majority nation and that Islamic law is strictly enforced. Expats should also be aware that the country has a very conservative culture and that women are expected to dress modestly and adhere to certain social norms. Additionally, expats should be aware that the cost of living in Al Khobar is relatively high, and that the city is not particularly well-known for its nightlife or entertainment options. Finally, expats should be aware that the city is located in a desert climate, and that temperatures can reach extreme highs during the summer months," said one expat who made the move to Al Khobar.
