Hi All,

My personal advice is to have a look at the topic categories in the forum and check the latest posts; there are a lot of similar posts which can give you a justified answers to all of your questions.

Cost of living deponds mainly on your life style and level of living and for sure you will find whatever suits your budget.

The situation in Bahrain have been discussed several times in recent posts, you don't have to worry much about that; life is going on :)

I hope other members can give you more info about Schools, Accomodation ... etc.
