Dammam and the whole Eastern Province of Saudi is served by the popular King Fahd International Airport, the largest airport in the world.

The Dammam Corniche is among the most renowned tourist spots in the city. It is a seaside project that goes from Tarot Islan to Aziziah Beach.

You will not see any signs of backwardness in this city. In fact, many edifices are already of modern design and construction. It is very far from what many people who have not been in Saudi Arabia think about the middle East, it being basically made up of deserts and people with covered faces. Modernity and technology has definitely entered their country a long time ago, even much more advanced than other third world countries today. This will not come as a surprise being as wealthy as Damman is.
