ARTS & CULTURE
Muharraq, the former capital of Bahrain, has a true one-thousand-and-one-nights vibe. Wander through the small streets of this authentic part of Bahrain and discover an ancient castle and antique mosque with a minaret made of clay. The traditional houses display beautifully decorated doors and wind catchers that blow in the breeze. Visit nostalgic sweet shops and tea houses where Bahrainis relax with a hookah pipe wearing their traditional dishdasha robes.
On the top of a sand dune, in the middle of the desert in South Bahrain, a solitary tree stands tall. No flora can be seen for miles around as there’s not a drop of water to be found. And yet, the wide-branched tree has survived for some 4 centuries. The Bahrainis believe that the Tree of Life is a natural wonder, and the 10-metre high tree now attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year.
