From airport to the city
There is a bus running from the airport to the capital – the city of Manama. The stop is close to exits 3 and 4 on the arrivals level, and the ticket costs $ 0.7. However, to pay the fare, you need to buy a GO Card from the driver for $ 1.3.
The taxi rank is inside the parking lot B. However, if you decide to get to Manama by taxi, we advise you to book it online in advance. This way you will be sure that they haven't taken too much from you. A reasonable price for a taxi from the airport is $ 20–25.
You can also rent a car directly from the airport for $ 22 per day.
The same buses run around Manama that you can take from the airport. You do not need to buy a new card but only replenish the already purchased one. Fare is $ 0.7-1.3, depending on the distance. Check the prices on the transport company's website.
Interesting historical places
The whole of Bahrain is about a hundred square kilometers smaller than Kyiv, so it is quite possible to travel around the country in a few days.
Although it is presented mainly as a cluster of skyscrapers in advertising pictures, it is also historical. In particular, the 5,000-year-old Qal'at al-Bahrain from the UNESCO list. A long time ago, this place was the capital and the port of the ancient state of Dilmun, and in one of the cultural layers, archaeologists have discovered a Portuguese fortress. And what's the most interesting – only 25% are excavated.
Al Khamis Mosque is the second historical monument worth paying attention to. It was built either in the 7th or 11th century (researchers have not yet agreed on the exact date) and then rebuilt in the 15-16th centuries.
But the modern Al Fateh Mosque, a hallmark of Bahrain, is situated within Manama, unlike previous locations. It can accommodate 7,000 people, making it one of the largest Islamic temples in the world. Due to the absence of high buildings near the mosque, it seems even taller, and the bright night illumination perfectly emphasizes its silhouette.
You can finish the tour of the historical buildings in the 19th century Riffa Fort. In addition to walking along the mighty fortifications, here you can admire the view of the desert from the walls.
We also want to draw your attention to two modern skyscrapers. Bahrain World Trade Center – two more than 200-meter sail-shaped towers connected by bridges – stand out significantly against the background of even the high-rise part of Manama. At night, the lights of the two "sails" are beautifully reflected in the waters of the Persian Gulf. You can meditate on these lights from the island opposite (there is a bridge to it) for almost hours).
They use a lot of meat and seafood in Bahraini cuisine but few vegetables and fruits because the country's territory is a desert, so it isn't easy to grow anything.
Meat dishes include dajaj (stewed chicken in tomato sauce) and dozens of pilaf and kebabs variations.
Also, sweet balaleet vermicelli has an interesting taste. It is served for breakfast with cardamom caramel and omelet.
And do not deny yourself the pleasure of drinking coffee. Classic black is perfectly prepared here, and you can replace trendy flat-white or AeroPress with coffee with rose water and cardamom.
You can rent a very modest hotel room from $ 25. Prices for the more equipped standard rooms start at $ 45, and luxury rooms at $ 90–100.
