Eastern Province

The Eastern Province, with its large expat community, is home to some of the Kingdom's most liberal neighbourhoods, especially around the regional capital, Dammam. There is excellent international food here and many high-end hotels. It's also home to Ithra, on the edge of Dammam, the first venue in Saudi Arabia for international performing arts.
