    Day 02
    Manama - City Tour

    This morning we start with a visit to the Grand Mosque, a beautiful example of Arabian Islamic architecture (Ladies must cover their head with scarf and full sleeve covering their shoulders and men in trousers).

    We then proceed to the Bahrain national museum, which is situated, on the intersection of the Sheikh Hamad Manama-Muharraq causeway and King Faisal Highway, Bahrain National Museum built in 1988, the $34 million complex offers a comprehensive view of Bahrain through the ages. Arguably the most interesting of the exhibits in nine halls is a reconstructed ancient burial mound dating to around 2800 BC. The mound was plucked from the desert and reassembled in the museum. Other fascinating exhibits depict life in the Dilmun era, 19-20th century pearl-diving scenes as well as community life. The museum is a virtual treasure hose of history.

    You then go to the Museum pier for a short relaxing boat journey to the Bu Maher Fort. Here you will get a sneak peek at the new UNESCO world heritage site that is slowly unfolding. This new pearling pathway is a tribute to the famous jeweller Jacques Cartier. His journey to Bahrain in the 1920’s to get the best pearls in the world for his exceptional jewellery is part of this pearling pathway. “El Bahrain” means two seas. The fresh water springs in the salt-water sea surrounding Bahrain gives the pearls of Bahrain a very special luster and roundness. This two-sea feature, which is unique to Bahrain, was instrumental in ensuring that the Bahraini pearls were the best in the world. There was much sort after by the House of Cartier and other famous jewellers around the world. The entire pearling pathway when finished will be a 3.5 km long, It will consist of 17 buildings, 3 oyster beds located in the nearby sea and the seafront Bu Maherfort. This is a wonderful testimony to Bahrain’s rich pearling history, which dates back to 2000 BC.

    Later visit the old houses of Muharraq, painstakingly renovated by culture lover Shaikha Mai Bint Mohammed Al Khalifa. It has all the visual delights of old Arabia with the narrow lanes and close cluster of houses. You visit the newly renovated Ebrahim Bin Mohd Al Khalifa house. A Kurar house, Iqra Children Library and a real treat for people who love culture.

    Day 03
    Mountain of Smoke - Desert – Oil Museum - Bahrain Formula 1

    After breakfast we visit Jabel Ad Dukhan, dubbed the Mountain of Smoke, which at a height as 134 m (450 ft.): it is the highest point of the island. Its name comes from the misty haze, which frequently surrounds it on a hot and humid day.

    We venture into the desert where stands a broad shady, mature mesquite tree in solitary splendor. The loan tree in a sea of sand almost seems like a mirage. To this day the tree source of water remains a mystery. Some believe it gets its nourishment from an underground spring but that does not explain the complete lack of vegetation in the vicinity. Local lore dates the tree in millennium botanist say it may be several hundred years old.

    Later visit a museum dedicated to Oil. Bahrain was the first country in the gulf where Oil was struck, in 1932, and the museum allows you to trace the discovery of what’s become the region’s best – known export. Near by the Oil museum is the Oil Well No.1. Now almost a museum piece itself. Oil first spurted from this well on 16th October 1931, and the well finally began to blow heads of Oil on the morning of 2nd June 1932.

    The Bahrain International Circuit is one of the best formula one track in the world. This 180-million-dollar facility is a perfect example of tradition design and the most modern track. It offers a unique range of facilities that are unparalleled not in the middle east but in the world.

    Sheikh Salman bin Ahmed Al-Fateh Fort, commonly known as Riffa Fort due to its location in Riffa, is an historic landmark and stands witness to one of the most important junctures in Bahrain’s history. Within its beautiful architecture lives the memory of the ruling family of Bahrain, the Al Khalifas. A series of programs organized by the Ministry of Culture have brought life back to the fort and not only present a chronological history of the Al Khalifa family but showcase the interior space designed by the French firm, La Meduse and the local engineering firm, PAD, which took its inspiration from the fort’s history and people. Later in the evening we can enjoy the show of the famous Bahraini band Bin Faris Cultural Program.

    [Y] Breakfast [x] Lunch [Y] Indian Dinner


    Day 04
    Hindu Temple - Manama Souq - World trade Centre

    Today we start our day with a visit of a Hindu Temple of Lord Shrinathji (200yrs old) also known as Shri Krishna Temple, Manama. The temple is estimated to have been established in around 1817. The temple was established by Thathai Bhatia Hindu Community and is still managed by them. The deity roots originate from Nathdawara in Rajasthan India. It's a Vaishnav sect temple.

    The tour will then head to the Handicrafts Centre, where many craftsmen from various villages in Bahrain demonstrate their trade and where you'll enjoy some free time for shopping.

    Visit the Manama Souq – the old bazaar of Bahrain’s capital, Manama. The most breath-taking view in Manama is the popular souq in the old simple structure. The souq is located in the heart of the capital, which are a vast area and the great advantage of most of the stores with some of the old design dating back to 19th Century. The souk with it labyrinthine lanes and alleys is best explored on foot. You can find everything from clothes to spices, antiques, and traditional medicines with reasonable prices that suit all the classes. 

    Bahrain’s World Trade Centre is the world’s first commercial building to incorporate large-scale wind turbines into its initial design. The Bahrain world Trade Centre is 50 storey sail shaped twin offices towers, which reaches to a height 4,240 m (787ft).

    Day 05
    Dhow Building - Bahrain Fort – Camel Farm - King Fahad Bridge

    A visit to Bahrain is never complete if one misses out the Dhow Building yard. Hidden behind the high fence by the Khalifa Al Kabeer Highway next to the Fishermen’s Port in Muharraq is the oldest and the only Dhow building yard of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The high raised masts of the completed dhows welcome the visitors to the busy yard where the timbers lying around and the melody of the gentle sea breeze tells you a different story about a seafaring nation.

    Later we visit the Bahrain Fort. Historically, this is one of Bahrain’s most important sites. The fort itself was built in the 14th century by the Portuguese but excavations at the site reveal six other distinct eras of the place dating back to the Dilmun era, or around 3000BC during which time it may have been the island’s capital.

    The tour then head to the Handicrafts Centre, where many craftsmen from various villages in Bahrain demonstrate their trade and where you'll enjoy some free time for shopping.

    A privately-owned camel farm at Janabiya, is a must for people whose only contact with camels has been at a zoo or on television. Keep your cameras ready as a hundred or so Camels race in for the evening feed after grazing all day. (subject to race events)

    Visit the modern structure in Bahrain, the 25-kilometer-long King Fahad causeway built at a cost of $1 billion,links Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and is one of the world’s longest bridges between two countries The completion of construction in 1986 ended the 25,000 years separation of the two nations.
