Living in Bahrain:

Think is centrally located, in Saar, an area where there are many options for accommodation and there is a combination of expat families and local families. We are also very close to an area, called the Seef area, which has many restaurants, shopping malls, and lots options for accommodation. Bahrain is small and very easy to get around, although, like any thriving place that attracts a lot of people, there can be traffic, which everyone loves to complain about.

It is a nice and welcoming place to live that attracts diverse and interesting people. Having said that, it is essential to be able to learn and respect local culture and customs in order to fully appreciate and enjoy it. If you like to travel, one of the highlights of living here is the ability to easily travel to so many wonderful places.

Harvard Business Review (March 6, 2017) placed Bahrain as the top city worldwide for workers based on financial score.
