    Qal’at al-Bahrain – Ancient Harbour and Capital of Dilmun

    4.5
    12 reviews

    Qal’at al-Bahrain is an archaeological site that was the capital of the Dilmun civilization and gives us a glimpse into the many different people that have lived in Bahrain: such as Kassites, Portuguese, and Persians. As for visiting the fort... I enjoyed it but it was hard to really grasp what I was seeing. We didn't have a tour guide. ...

    A very nice tree. there is few tags on it but not that much visible. it is easy to find it from the road due to its size.

    The Bab el-Bahrain Souk is located in the heart of old Manama and is a traditional market full of shops and side streets. There's a huge variety of good to be had and the whole experience of walking through it and enjoying the sights and sounds is one not to be missed.

    King Fahd Causeway

    4
    2 reviews

    To be clear, a visit to the causeway is more about the romance of peering into Saudi Arabia than the sight itself. There is a tower located at the border where visitors can observe the border from an elevated observation deck. I enjoyed this but it isn't for everyone and probably shouldn't be high on most people's list.

    Bahrain National Museum

    3.5
    2 reviews

    Lonely Planet lists this as the highlight of Bahrain. Though the museum is pleasant and has a lot of useful information, feels a bit more like a 3rd Grade field trip than the pinnacle of a society. A nice place for an intro to the country and sights but the real stars of a visit to Bahrain will be found ...

    Attractive bar on the grounds of the Gulf Hotel. Listed as one of Lonely Planet's top 100 bars on Earth. The setting is lovely but it doesn't quite live up to LP's accolades. That said, it is still a nice setting if you can handle the nearly non-existent service. Think Thai villa with a Latin vibe. Can be very sleepy ...

    Gold City

    1 review

    Gold City is more like a mall than anything else. It's mainly full of jewelry stores and shops specializing in handcrafted goods made in Bahrain and throughout the Middle East. If you're looking for some great jewelry or just need to get out of the heat for a bit it's a great place to stop in.

    Nicely restored historic home in the Muharraq neighborhood. You can't help but feel like a child again as you explore the rooms and rooftop with little or no oversight.

    Pleasant neighborhood filled with stylish restaurants and cafes. Easy to explore on foot and close to the Grand Mosque. Muharraq is a better traditional neighborhood but this is a good place to experience modern urban life in the kingdom.

    Central Business District

    1 review

    The Central Business District of Manama lies along the Northern Coast of the city and is the most vital part of the capital. Most of the cities hotels, businesses, shops, and restaurants are in the Central Business District. If you're visiting Bahrain it's pretty much inevitable that you'll end up here but it's the best place to be.

    Attractive traditional home in Muharraq. It isn't as nicely restore as Beit Sheikh Isa Bin Ali but is worth a quick visit. Hours are very limited. A good chance you will only be able to observe from outside.

    Small museum / exhibition center promoting traditional weaving by local female artisans. The restored building that houses the center is worth a visit. The exhibits are limited but the center has potential. Note: items are not for sale.

    Attractive Asian-influenced water garden hidden in the back alleys of Muharraq. Don't go out of your way to find it but a nice little find as you explore the area.
