Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Manama: Dragon City Bahrain (in Al Muharraq), Royal Golf Club (in Riffa) and Zallaq (Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve & Jazaer Beach). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Bahrain National Museum, look for gifts at City Centre Bahrain, explore the ancient world of Qal'at al-Bahrain, and cool off at The Lost Paradise of Dilmun Water Park.

Get in touch with nature at The Cedars of God and Tyre Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Baalbek Roman Ruins and Mim Museum - Mineral Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Baalbeck (Hajar al-Hibla & Temples of Baalbek), Zahle (Our Lady of Zahle and Bekaa & Chateau Ksara) and Beiteddine (Beit Eddine & Moussa Castle). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve, take in the spiritual surroundings of Deir Qozhaya, examine the collection at Nicolas Sursock Museum, and contemplate the long history of Tyre Hippodrome.
