Eastern Province (Saudi Arabia)
The three main cities of the Eastern Province are all tightly clustered together and no more than a 15-min drive apart from each other.
The rest are scattered around the coast:
- Hofuf (al-Ahsa) — the world's largest oasis
- Wadi al-Dawasir (Sulayyil) — gateway to the Empty Quarter
- Empty Quarter — the largest sand desert in the world
Public transport is very limited, so having your own wheels will really pay off here.
