What to do in Bahrain
The Bahrain National Museum is at the heart of ancient Manama, with artefacts from the Dilmun civilisation, a people that thrived for more than a thousand years. Delve into treasures at the Bab al-Bahrain bazaar. View Manama’s impressive architecture, including the Al Fateh Grand Mosque and the Khamis Mosque. Beyond the capital, explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bahrain Fort, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century. On Muharraq Island, visit a traditional home at Beit Sheikh Isa Bin Ali Al Khalifa.
Bahrain travel tips
Manama is a small city situated on a small island, so getting around is easy. There’s no public transport, though, so hire a taxi to reach other nearby destinations. For added freedom, hire a car. However you get around, reach Manama in style when you fly to Bahrain with Cathay Pacific.
