Dhahran Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Saudi ARAMCO's compound is split into two sections, main camp and the Rolling Hills. Main camp is the older portion built in the 1950's while the Hills was built during the 1980's when Saudi ARAMCO was hiring like crazy. Actually, Dhahran looks a lot like parts of Arizona.
Also in Dhahran is King Fahd University for Petroleum and Minerals and the US consulate.
Outside of Dhahran lies the Saudi city of Khobar where you can experience some Saudi culture, but American fast food places and stores have popped up everywhere there too.
