Bahrain overview

The Eastern and Western cultures combine, making the green oasis of Bahrain a country of contrasts. Modern high rise buildings compete for space with the traditional dwellings. Prepare for a truly Middle Eastern experience with the ancient burial mounds, temples and historic forts. However, in contrast, take time out and enjoy Bahrain’s lush beach resorts and tasty cuisine at stylish restaurants. Located at the north-eastern tip of the island is the modern capital city of Manama, still holding on to some heritage with the historic museums, a vibrant souk and gigantic mosque.

Bahrain honeymoon tips and articles

Getting Married in Bahrain

If you're looking for a destination to get married abroad that will leave you with many wonderful experiences, then why not consider Bahrain. This tiny island, which forms part of an archipelago of 33 islands, is considered the most modern of the Middle East countries and is a melting pot of modern western cultures and traditional Arabian culture. Where modern sky scrapers jostle for place with ancient mosques and temples, and where modern malls exist close by to traditional and colourful souqs, you never know what to expect as you turn a corner. With a choice of lavish banquet rooms in swanky hotels or more intimate affairs held in a small restaurant, weddings abroad in Bahrain can cater for all tastes and budgets. With so much to see and do in this fascinating and diverse island, why not extend your stay to include a honeymoon too.
