Sunny. Laid-back. Idyllic. Those are the images Bahrain conjures up for most people familiar with the region. Which is great if all you want to do during your visit is put your feet up and relax.
But there is a lot more to Bahrain than its small land size might suggest.
So put those boots back on and join us as we explore the sights and sounds of a country that is, quite simply, like no other in the world!
Through the links on this page, we will take you not just to the popular tourist spots, but also to places off the beaten track. We will also help you shop, join you in a game or two, give you lessons in history, and if you're good, take you out to dinner.
Ready? Let's go....
