#8 of 12 in Things to do in Al Muharraq
Visit one of Bahrain's oldest markets at Muharraq souq. Stroll through the market offering traditional clothing, jewelry, coffee, spices, and confectionary. Notice a variety of delicious sweets, especially the famous homemade halwa, which is perfect with a cup of qahwa. Afternoons have proven to be notably busy, so take a cab into the area to avoid parking issues. Work out when and for how long to visit Muharraq souq and other Al Muharraq attractions using our handy Al Muharraq travel route planning site .
