Is it a place to live normal live or it's strict like any area in Saudi?

Can a lady drive her car ?

    Its normal life, and probably the most linient city in Saudi Arabia, but if you compare to european cities you'll find it quite conservative and strict.

    Can a lady drive her car ?
    No Ladies still dont have permission to drive cars in Saudi Arabia.

    How far is it from Bahrain?
    Its like 40-50 km from Bahrain, and on normal speed it will take around half an hour to reach Bahrain, but remember on week ends, the causeway bridge gets jammed and it might take hours to wait in queue on bridge.

    This site might help. http://saudiscenes.blogspot.com/

    Yes you can drive your car in camp as a female. Not outside. It is about an hour from Bahrain once you cleared the causeway. Otherwise it take 10-15 minutes to get to the causeway. Women on camp act just like they do in the U.S. or Europe. Good Luck!
