Bahrain overview

The green oasis of Bahrain is a country of contrasts. Eastern and western cultures blend as high rise buildings vie for space with traditional dwellings. It gives a truly authentic middle eastern experience yet along side the historic forts, ancient burial mounds and temples you will find plush beach resorts and stylish restaurants. The capital Manama, located at the north-eastern tip of Bahrain Island, is a modern city but still has a vibrant souk, enormous mosque and fascinating museums to explore.
