About Bahrain

Bahrain, a nation comprising more than 30 islands in the Persian Gulf, has been at the center of major trade routes since the ancient times. Its modern capital, Manama is also the largest city. Manama enjoys a distinct reputation as a tourism and cultural hub regionally and internationally. The city's thriving Bab al-Bahrain bazaar offers wares ranging from colourful hand-woven fabrics and spices to pearls. Manama has a lucid appeal. The celebrated location of ancient Dilmun and the heart of the Gulf's pearling past are only some of Bahrain's rich history that can be reflected on with pride.

Nowadays, the country is even known for its own Formula 1 Grand Prix, a continuously developing art, and a spectacular gastronomical scene that the growing expat population adores.
