Most of the tour takes you through the main streets of Manama, the city centre and some of Bahrain's most popular tourist attractions. After graduation at ManAMA Souq, the tour will take in the Bait Al-Hamad Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art in Bahrain, as well as a number of restaurants and bars in the city centre.
This huge water park is located in downtown Bahrain and is worth a visit if you are here for the kids. This is a very safe area, especially made for rich people visiting Manama, with many security forces and surveillance cameras.
Also worth seeing: Bahrain's fortress Qalat Al Bahrain was built in the 14th century and has also housed the National Library of Bahrain since 2006. Bab Al-Bahrain is located at the customs square and is home to a tourist information office, making it a great place for travelers to get tips on exploring the city. From 9 am to 6 pm there is also a café with a good selection of food and drinks. This building is open to tourists as it serves as an active mosque, and there are also many restaurants, shops, cafes and shops in the area.
The multi-storey Bahrain Mall is a true temple of commerce; the Seef Mall is the second largest in the kingdom and caters for all your shopping needs. With over 1,000 shops and over 2 million square metres of space, it is the largest shopping street in Bahrain.

Housed in the Bahrain National Museum, we celebrate the civilization that once called the area home. Manamaas three major landmarks end their culture by traversing the oil fields of the Al Khalifa oil field, the largest and most productive in the world.
Manama is a city of dreams and fascinating wonders, and it has stayed true to its name over the years. At that time, the Bahraini archipelago was part of the Persian Empire and was considered an important trading center in the Arabian Gulf. It became a center of Shiite scholarship and training for the ulama and was to remain so for centuries. When Nestorian Christianity spread to Bahrain, the island came under the control of the Parthian and Sassanid empires.
The port of Manama served as a major global distribution center, and it is home to the US naval base that houses one of the largest military bases in the Middle East, the Bahraini naval base.
While the twin cities of Manama and Muharraq were founded simultaneously in the 19th century, it is the capital of Bahrain and has gained in importance in recent years. Historically, Manama was limited to the city of Al Khalifa, which is now known as a city of about 1.5 million inhabitants.
Although the country's interests were originally purely commercial, Manama became the center of British activities in the Persian Gulf in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, Bahrain established itself as an independent nation under the rule of the ruling dynasty of Khalifa bin Salman al-Bahraini.
The government of Bahrain, where the Sunni Muslim minority rules over the Shiite majority, says the deal protects its interests against Iran and protects its interests in Iran.

Although Bahrain is at the heart of Middle East oil production, it has a surprisingly low level of natural oil, reliant heavily on its neighbors for oil production, and has lacked modesty and ubiquitous luster. Women don't have to hide here, but they probably behave in a way that visitors should refrain from wearing tight or revealing clothing, including strapless or skimpy tops, as they point to the standard dress expected in Bahrain. And they are short, which is not appreciated by the majority of the people of Bahrain. It is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, which attracts a lot of tourists and misses much of its natural beauty.
