Bahrain-Skyline-Manama Alain Last weekend, a colleague and I went to Manama in Bahrain to renew our Saudi visa. I’ve been to Bahrain 4 times already and I stayed 3-4 nights in each visit. There’s nothing much to do in Bahrain, really. You can even explore the whole country in half a day! Manama is called “Saudi Bar” by the local Saudis I know here.

And oh, even if the shops claim to be on sale, the prices are still bad for your wallet. On our second day in the city, my colleague rented a car and we drove around the city.
