Holidays to Bahrain
Holidays in Bahrain will take you to a small country in the Persian Gulf flanked by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The country is very much an Arab country, in terms of its traditions and lifestyle, but it has a sophisticated and more liberal culture than most of the surrounding countries. This makes it a more modern country and helps to make it much more inviting to those looking for the ideal place to spend their holiday.
For those taking holidays to Bahrain, there is plenty to see and do. You may wish to explore the Qala'at al-Bahrain, or the Bahrain Fort, on the northern shore of the country. It is in good repair and it is open to the public. A local museum near the fort is also worth visiting as it features artefacts dating back thousands of years. Also, visit the Tree of Life, which is a tree that grows in the centre of the desert, with oil wells surrounding it. There are other architecturally and historically important sites to visit throughout this area as well.
Many tourists and sports enthusiasts plan their holidays in Bahrain around the Bahrain Grand Prix, an event that takes plays each year in April. Other visitors come to take part in various water sports, with the most popular including parasailing, water skiing and fishing, or just to cool down from the consistently high temperatures by heading to the beaches. You may also want to go scuba diving, and you can book a charter with one of the local companies. These companies will help you to find the best locations for diving. Sailing is also popular here, either by renting a boat or taking a charter.
You may want to explore the desert (though you should not do this on your own). You can take a camel ride along the local highway, which is a popular sightseeing tour. One of the most unique sights you will see in the desert is an 18-hole golf course, grass included, in the middle of the desert sand. The golf course is an amazing place with hundreds of palm trees throughout it, and is open all year round.
You can also purchase artisan works and local pieces of art at A'ali Village Pottery, in the heart of the city. Guests can visit the various local souk markets to haggle over a purchase of food, handmade goods and other products.
With all of its amazing qualities and picturesque settings, Bahrain is an amazing place to visit. Bahrain holidays can be one of the best experiences for individuals new to the Arabian lifestyle. You will experience a unique and different culture while still having a lot of fun enjoying the water, desert and modern amenities.
