Popular with tourists for its blend of ancient heritage and modern Arabian culture, the compact island country of Bahrain sits near the Persian Gulf's western shores and boasts a lively economy largely based on petroleum refining and international banking. Claiming to be the actual location of the biblical Garden of Eden, the country enjoys a tropical climate and offers a string of luxury beachfront resorts, appealing to some of the world's wealthiest vacationers. Budget travelers on holiday in Bahrain concentrate on the thriving food and arts scenes of capital Manama, known for having one of the world's largest mosques. From there, you'll have easy access to plenty of other popular activities, such as scuba diving, horse racing, pearl diving, and bird-watching. In the build up to your vacation in Bahrain, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Bahrain trip planner.
