1.
Check out the housing.
   
2.
For those with school-going children the location of schools would be an important consideration.
   
3.
Shopping facilities are not a problem but traffic congestion could be.
   
4.
Bahrain is a liberal Muslim country but sensitivity to how we expats behave and dress at certain times and places (eg. During the Holy Month of Ramadan or walking in the Souks and local areas) is worth checking out.
   
5.
Check out the availability of Women's organizations. Bahrain is a very a small island and these groups provide a wealth of information and support to newly arrived expats.

1.
Bahrain is actually a very easy place to live, so do not worry- it is not like Saudi, in terms of restrictions to foreigners etc.
   
2.
There are lots of things to do (e.g. clubs, riding clubs, night clubs, restaurants, etc.) so be sure to join and enjoy some.
   
3.
If you are looking for work, there is usually work for foreigners with the foreign and the local companies.
   
4.
You do not need to bring a suitcase full of books, as there are some bookstores here, plus Amazon.com delivers here.
   
5.
Summers can be hot and humid, but if you did not bring the correct clothing, you will be happy to know that clothing is available in good clothes stores here and near.
