Bahrain, which means ‘two seas’, is actually made up of an archipelago of 33 islands.
The pearls:- Bahrain is known for its variety of pearls. If you’re the adventurous type, a licensed diving company will whisk you off to the middle of the sea for a pearl dive where you get to keep what you find.
Gold souq:- Enjoy a dazzling experience shopping for gold at Manama Souq. Dotting one of the alleys in the market are a number of gold vendors selling the purest and best quality 22- and 24-carat gold as opposed to the 18-carat that’s common in the West.
Food fiesta, no trip is complete until you stuff your face with local delicacies. Bahrain has many restaurants offering something for every taste bud.
Islamic architecture:- This country has some breathtaking architecture, like the Bahrain National Theatre that is designed to look like a mother of pearl jewellery box, and the many towers in and around the Bahrain Financial Harbour, including the infamous skyscraper that has integrated wind turbines into its design.
Bahrainis are some of the most down to earth, helpful and social people you’ll ever meet. Hospitality is deeply ingrained in their culture. Unlike other Gulf countries, Bahrain’s population comprises an equal number of locals and expats, which adds to its charm.
Home to one of the most ancient civilisations Bahrain is the cradle of one of the Middle East’s oldest civilisations, the Dilmun civilisation. Boasting a 6000-year history.
Home of motorsport in the Middle East:- The Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) in Sakhir features five FIA certified track layouts, more than anywhere else in the world. This allows it to host a range of motor racing events, including the Formula One Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix, the FIA World Endurance Championship 6 Hours of Bahrain, races in the GP2 Series and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
