Our Experiences: Bahrain is a rich oil based economy country. A tiny little one. There is a beautiful skyline with modern buildings bordering the Persian Gulf. The city is a good spot for buying gold jewelry. Near Manama lies the 4,000 BC archaeological site of Dilmun, a place known by the Sumerians. Some recent theories relate Dilmun to the ancient legend of the Garden of Eden. Amazing!
Hotels we love and recommend: Marriott (Manama)
