    A really great experience, that should be high on the agenda if you want to understand the history and development of Bahrain. Well designed building with varied exhibits covering both history and culture, and cheap to enter. It only cost us 1.1BD in July 22 (approx £2.40). Recommended.

    A trip to Bahrain is incomplete without a visit to the Bab el-Bahrain Souk. Its a mix of of old souk alleyways and newer lanes. Its a great place to pick up a souvenir, a bite to eat or even some gold. The place comes to life in the evening, making it a great place to experience the local way of lie.

    Our tour operator ( Ishtar Gate tour) advised us to visit Formula 1 circuit and he mentioned: we shall go and visit this place.
    it was the first time for me to see a formula race circuit and i was amused as the tourist guide explained every thing to us with full details.

    Surprising attraction and excellent museum. Site is world heritage on the original 4000 year old. Dilman settlement with a 17th century Portuguese fort now dominating 17 hectares. Informative tour around the fort (take water and shade). The museum is excellent as it tells the story of the history and the archeology of the site in an clear educational way demonstrated through the exhibits. Not the usual broken shards of pottery and impossible to follow descriptions you find on many museums. Truly learned something of the history of Bahrain today. Museum also has an excellent cafe situated on the waters edge for one of the best views in Bahrain. Suggest go close to sunset.will revisit with family in coming months. At Just over 2 BHD excellent value also.

    Part of the half day tour of the south of Bahrain. When visiting this place it looks like you go back in time! Everything is still like it was in the past and that's why it makes a visit so memorable....when today meets the past!

    Al Dar is a lovely island to visit, a nice place to go if you want to escape the mainland for a few hours. I have visited 3 times over the last 5 years with my Dad and daughter. it was cool travelling by a boat to get to the island. The beach was very clean, nice and Sandy. There was a shop and cafe there to get food and necessary drinks to keep you hydrated. There were changing rooms and showers. You could do water sports such as water skiing and jet ski. I wanted to go just to relax and on the beach sat on the deck chair it was peaceful and bliss...it helped by having a nice cold can of red horse lager, what more do you need. The sea was clean and not too cold because of the heat bouncing of the water surface. I'd recommend the island even if it was a one of visit.

    I always enjoyed walking into Seef Mall! Great place to be in. You can easily find what you're looking for. I do recommend Seef Mall to any visitor! Especially families.

    this was our visit to attempt to rub shoulders with the rich and glamorous of Bahrain. We did find wonderful Kunafa there and we really enjoyed looking at the high end sports cars for sale.

    While it may just be a tree, it's a tree in the middle of the dessert with little else around. It's an attractive tree under which you can contemplate how it even manages to survive in such a barren landscape.

    If you have your own transport in Bahrain, its worth a trip to visit and see the dessert and oil drills at the same time. There aren't any facilities to speak of at the site with the exception of toilets.

    If you are a fan of calligraphy or religious texts this is the place for you. A huge collection of Korans, old and new from all around the world can be found in Beit Al Qur'an. As a non-Muslim, I spent a good half hour admiring very much appreciated the craftsmanship and beauty of the penwork which males up the religious texts. Definitely add a visit here to your list if you are looking for a bit of culture.

    It was my first visit to this temple for Thanksgiving & to seek Lord Krishna's blessings.
    The temple is under renovation and hopefully will look better in the coming months. However, once inside, the atmosphere is serene. One can sit in peace and meditate. With God, everything is possible!!
