I went along with my friends to Bahrain this weekend. They planned a very quick getaway, just 1 night, we ended up having lots of fun and spending less than 23 hours in there… not even a full day in the country.

We were 4 in a single car, so all the destinations were semi prearranged and it was easy to regroup and shoot to the next place on the list. We were on a tight schedule and we arrived late so toward the end of the trip it got a bit hectic.

We had 4 things planned for one day, all of which could potentially ruin the schedule. We had a BanyanTree spa appointment for a massage, a little pool time with the dolphins, a Chinese restaurant to eat in, and a couple of malls to visit in order to leave Bahrain without feeling we’ve left something out. Miraculously we did all of that and ate dinner at johnny and came back to Kuwait, again all in less than 23 hours 🙂

I have 5 posts coming up about this Bahrain visit:

1-Grand Mercure Hotel.

2-Swimming with the Dolphins.

3-Memories of China restaurant.

4-BanyanTree Spa.

5-The Om Kalthoom Exhibition.

Stay tuned 🙂

    O55! You went to 3ambaloo9-randaboot-wara-hal-lown land! Love Bahrainis. They’re awesome 🙂 Hope you tried some of the restaurants that are huddled altogether in one area. I forget the name of one Thai restaurant, maybe called Monsoon it was amazing when I went.

    What’s Bahrain sans liquor?? Pretty dull and boring, I imagine. Besides, the place is infested with young and restless Saudis.

    Hi, wow bahrain does look interesting, what abt the visa’s in case for indian expats driving to bahrain and how is it done any ideas 🙂 since many of us wish to go, jazeera at times turns out to be expensive, a drive done would be ideal for a group of friends.
