The capital of the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Dammam is the sixth largest city in the country. A major hub of the Saudi oil industry, Dammam is the largest growing city in the entire Arab region. It is a thriving metropolis in the Arabian Gulf known for its waterfronts, beaches and parks.
Like the rest of the country, Damman revels in Saudi Arabian culture, traditions and cuisine. The city is well developed and has many interesting places, including the beautiful Dammam corniche area and King Fahd Park. In addition, it is home to the kingdom's first street-art exhibition in Al Khobar's Bayoonya district. Damman also has some entertainment parks, museums and shopping malls.
Damman was originally a cluster of little hamlets, with its small population depending mainly on fishing and pearls for their livelihood. However, the discovery of the oil wells in the region, accounting for a quarter of the world's oil reserves, led to massive economic developments and transformed it into an important centre for trade and commerce in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The King Abdul Aziz seaport in Dammam is the largest in the Persian Gulf region. Dammam now has a rapidly growing population of around 1.5 million and has established itself as an essential city central to Saudi's economy and progress.
