"Home away from home" Al Jubayl by american_tourister
Al Jubayl Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 10 photos
Jubayl has been the home of people for over 4000 years yet there is little to suggest that anyone has lived here for over 100 years. It is a Saudi boom town that is dependant on the tides of the chemical and oil business and is home to thousands and thousands of expat workers from many countries. In 2 years I have yet to meet anyone, Saudi or otherwise who was born and raised here.
It is better than most Saudi towns though in many respects. It has a little shopping mall, decent grocery stores, restaurants, fast food and some nice western expat compounds. It is on a main highway to Khobar and is only about a 1 hour drive from the Bahrain causeway.
It is split up into 4 definitive areas spread over a very large area. There is Mina Jubayl (Port of Jubayl), Industrial Jubayl (Chemical plants and support), Jubayl City (vendors and shops), and Residential Jubayl.
