<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Middle East is not top of mind when people dream about getting a job and living overseas. They dream about places like the United States of America, or Europe, or some utopian nation. Arguably, it’s very easy to idealize a place when you have not experienced living there. If you ask expatriates living abroad, though, Bahrain is the </span><a href="http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/bahrain/gulf-country-voted-best-in-world-for-expats-1.2086259" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><span style="font-weight: 400;">best country in the world</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> to live in. We’ll give you five more reasons why Bahrain should be your top destination for overseas work.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Great Business Environment</span></h2> <figure class="wp-block-image alignnone size-large wp-image-4649 size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1024" height="768" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/rorals1.jpg" alt="Top Five Reasons Why You Should Work in Bahrain" class="wp-image-9621" title="Top Five Reasons Why You Should Work in Bahrain" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/rorals1.jpg 1024w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/rorals1-300x225.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/rorals1-768x576.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /><figcaption>Have your business dinners in scenery like this.</figcaption></figure> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The </span><a href="http://bahrainedb.com/why-bahrain/conducive-business-environment/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Bahrain Economic Development Board</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> touts their better incentives to businesses compared to their Gulf Cooperation Council neighbors. There are no personal income taxes. Added to that is their robust currency, and that means work in Bahrain nets more earnings for an overseas worker.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Terrific Location</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If the travel bug has bitten you, there are a lot of places that will be of interest to you in this relatively small country. For those</span>&nbsp;interested in nature and bird-watching, a must-see is the Hawar Group of Islands . The <a href="https://www.lonelyplanet.com/bahrain/a-ali/attractions/a-ali-burial-mounds/a/poi-sig/1315733/1331715" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">A’ali burial mounds</a>, the different mosques with their imposing minarets, the diverse museums, and the modern malls with their built-in wind turbines make this country a must-visit for travel junkies. This island Kingdom is also right in the center of Europe, Asia, and Africa. It would be no hardship to do a long weekend in the neighboring countries, as well as affordable to tick your travel bucket lists for the rest of the world.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image alignnone size-large wp-image-4651"><img loading="lazy" width="1024" height="768" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/r2.jpg" alt="Top Five Reasons Why You Should Work in Bahrain" class="wp-image-9622" title="Top Five Reasons Why You Should Work in Bahrain" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/r2.jpg 1024w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/r2-300x225.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/r2-768x576.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /><figcaption>It&#8217;s heaven for culture vultures!</figcaption></figure> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Traffic? And What’s That?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In Bahrain, you will get used to getting to your destination in </span><a href="http://www.expatwoman.com/bahrain/monthly_bahrain_guide_growing_up_17738.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><span style="font-weight: 400;">30 minutes or less</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">. This would mean you would get to do more with your day instead of getting caught-up in soul-sucking traffic that the rest of the world has to endure. The only downside to this is that you won’t be able to blame traffic anymore for being late when you were really loving your bed a bit too much.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Culture and the People</span></h2> <div class="wp-block-image wp-image-4650 size-large"><figure class="aligncenter size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="1024" height="676" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/ahmedrabea-1024x676.jpg" alt="Top Five Reasons Why You Should Work in Bahrain" class="wp-image-9623" title="Top Five Reasons Why You Should Work in Bahrain" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/ahmedrabea-1024x676.jpg 1024w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/ahmedrabea-300x198.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/ahmedrabea-768x507.jpg 768w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/ahmedrabea.jpg 1134w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /><figcaption>You and your family are welcome here.</figcaption></figure></div> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Bahrain has a venerable culture, having been part of the ancient </span><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilmun" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dilmun civilization</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">.
