Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Al Khobar responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Al Khobar appreciate the city's modern infrastructure, which includes a wide range of amenities such as shopping malls, restaurants, and entertainment venues. They also enjoy the city's proximity to the beach and the Red Sea, as well as its low cost of living. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the conservative culture and strict laws of Saudi Arabia to be restrictive. Additionally, the lack of nightlife and public transportation can be a challenge for those who are used to a more vibrant lifestyle," remarked one expat in Al Khobar.
