If you haven't been down to Ahmadi to see the lights you really should go. KOC is celebrating 75 years and the place looks like a winter wonderland.
Head straight down the 40 expressway towards Ahmadi til you see the turn off to the right for Ahmadi take the right and keep going straight til pass the Governer building til you see all the lights around the park area. There's a great walking area all the way around the park so you get to see all most all of the lights. It's safe and fun. You need to go after sunset of course. Have posted some pics if you are still not convinced.
