Comprised of 33 islands, the country of Bahrain attracts people throughout the Persian Gulf as well as the rest of the world. Expatriates mix with natives across all social settings, creating the multi- cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-denomination city that Bahrain is known as today. This Arab country offers low costs of living, excellent education, and high-quality health care, making it an attractive destination for expat families.
It is no surprise that many people are flocking to this small island country. In fact, the population as of 2010 included 666,172 non-nationals, and since then that number has only increased.
