    Bahrain What to Pack

    Bring along a guide to the Middle East buy a reputable company such as Lonely Planet, Foot Prints or another company. Read the reviews on Amazon before you buy. My personal preference is Lonely Planet. Although these can be purchased locally, it may not be easy to find. The selection may also be limited so buy before you arrive. Buy a Middle East...

    Bahrain What to Pack

    Basically anything you want you can buy in bahrain. It’s probably best for me to talk about what you should buy whilst you’re here to take back home. 1 - 22 carat gold is sold by the gram here, which means they'll weigh the jewellery on scales to tell you the price. Gold usually sits around US$10 a gram and when compared to lots of other...

  • Type of Suncream

    The best type of Sun cream to bring along with you is one that is non waterproof. Not being waterproof will allow your skin to breathe better and to perspire better. This will keep you more comfortable when you are out and about and not swimming. The waterproof sun cream can be easily purchased here. However the cost may be more than what you are...

    One last thing: The cost of dry cleaning is laughable in Bahrain. If you can bring dirty washing - even though this sounds mad - do. It’ll be done within 24 hours for less than a pound sterling for each item.

  • Packing List

    I took one medium case on wheels and a smaller hand luggage bag and I still took to many clothes. Remember out there clothes dry overnight or in a couple of hours. I also had to buy another small case to bring home the clothes I had made while I was there. Anything lightweight, loose and cool. Remember to take something to cover legs to knees and...

  • Packing List

    any luggage will do.... but travel as light as possible.... comfortable walking shoes. Clothing that keeps you cool, but protected from the hot sun. Don't come in August, as I hear it is unbearably hot. Winter is probably better for people who don't like blast furnaces.See map below for general overview.

    A big sun hat, baggy shorts & shirts, a light jacket for winter. You are best to bring your favourite item of clothing & buy some of the excellent material from the cloth souk & get it copied by one of the many excellent tailors, for a couple of dinars. A US dollar is about 0.377 Bahraini dinars......... STRONG SUN CREAMAll womens' 'toiletries'...
