Once is enough

If you are in Bahrain it is a must see. It is free of charge and they have the area set up really nice for visitors. Bring water!

Excellent place to drive thru the desert and reach this place of Tree of life, a tree in the middle of desert which is over 400 years old. Now they have added a walkway and a museum around the tree with a 24 hours securoty huard.

I was quite impressed by the size of this old tree and its ability to have grown so old in spite of its disadvantage in nature growing as it does in the desert. BUT I was less impressed with young tourists of different nationalities european/asian, climbing/sitting/drawing on the tree, and would sincerely hope that the Bahraini authorities will take steps...

It was nice to see the Tree of Life in person Once. Other than it being a 400 year old tree in the middle of the desert, there is nothing more. They've also removed the surrounding gate, so you can climb it.

The drive to see the tree is interesting. We had to drive pass many oil fields. The first oil well in Bahrain is also located along the route. There isn't much to see except for the tree once we arrived at the location. However, the tree of life itself is grand. It has interesting structure. It's not too tall. It's... More

For some reason everyone must visit this site! Nothing much there apart from a big, 400 yr old tree but the little information gallery is worth a read. You'll have the chance to see some 'nodding donkey's' (oil) on the way which the kids enjoyed. Kids enjoyed the space to run around.

Bahrain's a small island. On my first visit to Bahrain I drove to the Tree of Life. It was a nice way to see the island and get out of the city. There was not much to see, but it was worth the drive. The tree's history is intriguing.

This tree stands alone on a hill in a totally sandy environment. Kids like to play on it. It's in the middle of nowhere, and it's said if you touch it you'll come back to Bahrain someday. You will see directional signs to it in some places, but then the signs desert you and without a GPS or smartphone, you... More
