A small island in the Persian Gulf, just off the coast of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. From the outside, Bahrain seems to have a hard exterior. If you allow a little time or plan a trip for a longer duration, you will then discover the best parts of this nation. Bahrain is not a tourist destination, so you might have it all to yourself if you’re lucky. You will need a car to get around in this country – avenues are huge and the heat is relentless at times.
One thing is for certain, the people are friendly and the foodie scene is growing. The expat-populated capital of Manama is thriving with great restaurants and activities to be enjoyed nearby. Travellers who are curious about something a little different may enjoy uncovering the many layers of Bahrain.
