    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.

    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...

    Egypt uses european style two pin plugs. Because of the various devices I have, I made up a small extension lead with multiple square pin sockets. That way you can charge several devices at once. Local 'Holiday' SIM cards are a good buy in Egypt if you are making local calls. I usually end up giving it to the taxi driver on the way to the airport...

  • General Guide or Backpack Essentials

    Military style bags ie dark green etc should be avoided and a backpack that can hold up to 10 days worth of clothes is advisable. You will get a lot of mini buses in Yemen, Oman, Syria, Jordan etc and a big bag will be a huge hassle and not worth it. The weather is pretty consistent in the Gulf so you will only need a few different outfits giving...

    Luggage on wheels, of course! Bring and extra bag to take home all your wonderful finds in! In October it was still very warm during the day.

I would take several long pants, a comfortable sweater and then...

  • Packing List

    Don't be fooled into thinking that the middle east is always hot and sunny...at times the weather in some parts can be downright cold wet and miserable. Accommodation doesn't always include suitable heating, so you'll feel the cold more than you would do back home. So bring along some cold weather clothes. It is incredibly hot in summer, but Arab...
