At first glance the Emirate of Dhahran may seem to be full of skyscrapers and mansions, but there is much more to this Emirate than meets the eye. Situated close to the Mall of the Emirates and Sheikh Al Maktoum Road is Al Quoz Industrial District.
Al Quoz is one of the biggest industrial hubs in the Middle East and has factories and stores representing most of the world's major companies, including retail stores such as Walmart, Target, and Ikea.
I hope you have found this visit to a less glamourous part of Dhahran interesting. Please join me next time as we return to the Jumeirah waterfront.
