If you ask those that have the pleasure of living on this island, they would agree that Bahrain is a remarkable destination in terms of culture, quality of living, and lifestyle. The recent HSBC Expat Explorer Survey confirms just that, ranking Bahrain as the top destination in the Middle East. The annual survey counts as a holistic assessment of expats experiences across three key areas. Namely economics, experience, and family. This year, Bahrain’s position moved up to fifth in the world, up from ninth in 2017.
