Moving to Bahrain
While Bahrain is often thought of as the most liberal of the Gulf states, it’s still important to learn about Islam and the Arabic way of life as this governs all aspects of living in the country.
To avoid causing offence, respect cultural and religious customs such as dressing modestly and not drinking in public. English is widely spoken – so there’s no language barrier for most expats. But if you’re moving from a cooler climate you may struggle with the intense heat and humidity typical of the Middle East. The flat, dry landscape can also take some getting used to.
