Known as the pearl of the Gulf, Bahrain’s reputation as a relatively liberal and modern island has made it a favourite with travellers in the region.

Bahrain has a central geographic location to the Gulf states of Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and the United Arab Emirates and is physically connected by road to Saudi Arabia – Saudi Aramco’s headquarters and the region’s largest single market.
