    Dhahran contains The Saudi Oil Company "ARAMCO" which is the first oil company world wide. there you are advise to visit the saudi aramco exhibit center. It is basically about the history of oil in Saudi Arabia. It shows the origin of oil, oil extraction, oil industry. there are very interesting simulations. and there you can see, read, interact and try many things. there is also a cinema show inside.

    Al-Rashid Mall

    by Mahmood_Siddiqui Written Oct 5, 2004

    Al-Rashid Mall is one the most prominant shopping malls of eastern region of Saudi Arabia. Almost every thing is available but with prices on a higher side. Usually people enjoy eating at the top floor food area.

    You can play golf on Dhahran's beautiful new grass golf course! Definately looks like an Oasis! Plenty of nice trees and welcoming green grass on this 18 hole golf course!

    Saudi Arabia is an awesome setting for a beautiful sunset as you will see in my pictures. We have enjoyed many right near our home, as well as around Dhahran. They really are an amazing site.

    Four Wheeling Continued

    If you are lucky you will see some camels while you are out four-wheelin. I wouldn't get too close as the owner of the camels wouldn't appreciate you scaring these "ships of the desert".

    KFUPM Water Tower

    by iwys Updated Apr 17, 2007

    The Dhahran skyline is dominated by the Water Tower at King Fahd University of Petrolem and Minerals. Near the top there is a clock whose chimes replicate those of Big Ben.

    you have to be a Aramco employee to enter the compound

      VT is not 'wrong'. All VT pages and tips are written by ordinary members, not by VT staff. It seems pretty obvious to me that the tips written about Aramco compound were written by an employee or an employee's relative. Perhaps you could send the member a message and ask him/her to clarify that point?
