Regional Info:
Unlike Dubai which is well known internationally thanks to a slick marketing campaign, Bahrain has long been the weekend holiday destination for expats and locals wanting to cut loose after a hard week’s work with a pocket full of tax free dollars. Connected to Saudi Arabia by a causeway, to Qatar by land and to the rest of the gulf by cheap Fly Dubai and Kuwait Air flights, Bahrain boasts a vibrant nightlife set amidst a more laid back brand of tourism. With palm trees and greenery on every corner, Bahrain presents more like a mix of Florida and Dubai without the frenetic pace and exorbitant price tag. With living costs over 30% cheaper than Dubai and a more compact expat population many feel it’s an easier place to live and work. It has all the bars, pubs, clubs, beaches and extra-curricular activities of Dubai, minus the indoor skiing, but on a slightly smaller scale and spread across an island network linked by bridges. Salaries tend to be lower in Bahrain, in line with the lower cost of living, and the children tend to be more multinational, multicultural and well behave than in similar schools in nearby countries. It’s safe and secure, and has a more laid-back beachy kind of vibe which is welcoming and happy with a ‘live and let live’ attitude that suits expats down to a Tee. Bahrain is the Island of Golden Smiles located in the warm azure waters of the Arabian Gulf close the peninsula of Qatar. Within good travelling distance from other Middle East locations and holiday locations in Africa and Asia it serves as a great stepping stone for many foreign adventures during weekends and longer breaks. For the working week after the preparation and marking is done there is plenty to see and do courtesy of a wide range of social and recreational facilities, hotels, bars, restaurants, clubs and malls.
