“Island of the Golden Smile”

published 13/05/2006

ProWarm, hot, fascinating place to visit

ConsVery humid ! 9 hour flight !

Look what I found when I was clearing some files from my work database .... a review I wrote after I had been to Bahrain in June 2001. As part of my job, working within a global conference and events organiser, I used to do so much more International (and somewhat more exotic) travel than I...

“Expat Heaven.”

published 05/10/2001

ProGood nightlife and pearl shopping

ConsNot much there for tourists

I may well be horribly biased but I think this is a fantastic place. After all I was born in Bahrain, but I hadn’t been back for at least 15 years when I visited family friends for a week last summer. It strikes me that Bahrain is far from an up and coming tourist destination. I had great...

“Bahrain”

ProGood for short breaks

Bahrain is a rare pearl in the Arabian Gulf. More relaxed than it's strictly Islamic neighbours - it combines the rich Arab culture with a more relaxed, somewhat Western, outlook.

ProCan see it all in a day or two

ConsNo beaches, lack of tourist attractions, expensive...

An island with without any beaches? It doesn't seem possible yet somewhow Bahrain manages to acheive it. A tiny island attached to the vastness of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain is a Kingdom with big plans. Like many of the other Gulf countries, it is a melting pot of cultures and there's always something...

“Nice place”

published 01/10/2009

ProHot weather, friendly people

ConsBeing stared at

I visited Bahrain in 2002 and met my other half who was on R&R from posting in Kuwait. The holiday got off to a good start, I sat next to a lady on the plane from Amsterdam who was from Dallas and we also travelled together on the way back. I was nervous travelling alone but found myself in good...
