Bahrain

Visiting Bahrain

Introduction

Bahrain is an oil-rich archipelago of 33 islands in the Gulf that define themselves in relation to the sea. Bahrain travel is straightforward given the country is modern and well-developed, and the country has a lot to offer for people on a Bahrain holiday who dig beneath the surface.

The Manhattan-style skyline of the capital Manama stands on reclaimed land. Below the Bahrain hotels and official buildings lies an enchanting souk and an excellent National Museum. To the west stands Bani Jamrah, a village famous for its weavers.

Visitors ought to explore the desert landscapes of the Al-areen Wildlife Park, a small conservation area that is home to many of Arabia's indigenous species, including the Arabian oryx. For culture and history travel to the ancient Barbar Temple complex, where a series of walkways allow you to explore the ruins.

For high speed thrills tour the Formula One Racetrack here. For something more sedate, retreat to the coast, where stretches of sand are fringed by reefs. The best is Al Jazair, from where dhows set sail to explore the nearby islands.
