I'm about to start working in Al Khobar and although I plan to reside in Bahrain, for the initial period I will be in Khobar while my Iqama is being sorted (10 days ish).
What I am wondering is how safe Khobar is for a western expat male around town? I'm used to getting to a new place and exploring the place at will. The first 10 days I think I'll have plenty of time on my hands so in an ideal world would like to explore, go to the gym and possibly go scuba diving. I would also like to find a boxing gym if possible.
Am I being realistic or naive??!!
