Dammam - The City of Gold
The city of Dammam is indeed a city of gold; not solid but liquid gold. It is a land which is unimaginably rich in oil and is also the capital of Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. Today we, of course, know it as the most significant port of the region but its evolution from a small village to this modern avatar has been remarkable indeed.
Since the foundation of the country i.e. 1932, this city has waited patiently for its chance. Earlier it used to be a home to many fishermen whose main income was dependent on fishes and pearls found in the sea. During more than half a century this city waited and slowly emerged as a center of commerce and industry. The transformation into a hub has obviously managed to provide it with strong capita and economy which has been extensively used in the city’s growth.
Unlike other major oil-rich cities, Dammam has grown in all dimensions. This can be easily observed on its roads and highways in a rental car which can be booked easily. As this city was growing to be a thriving hub of the industry, its construction has been done with a detailed planning; commercial areas are separate from the residential, broad roads and highways are there to let the system run smoothly.
Your trip to this city may be for business or vacation but it will surely not disappoint you. Be it to enjoy the stretch of beaches or its historical Dammam National Museum with the glimpses of history, this place is a big yes for all. Amusement parks and traditional cafés along the roads provide tinges of modernity and legends respectively. The must-to-do list of this city also urges you to have flavorsome sea food that is available here. Dammam is of course the ‘oil city’ but the shine of this place derives from its tradition, cuisines, culture and prosperity as well. To sense all these just jump into a rental car in Dammam and go in any and every direction which will surely please you.
