The Kingdom of Bahrain is an archipelago located to the east of the Arabian Peninsula. Over the decades, Bahrain has been renowned for its strategic advantage of being a distinguished trade hub in the region and the world. The developed infrastructure and government policy makes it an ideal location for foreign investments and tourism.
Bahrain’s multi-culture society and harmonious life that stretches back to more than five thousand years, has made it a unique melting pot in the region. Its capital, Manama, combines the majestic traditions of the past with urban lifestyle. The warm hospitality of the Bahraini people has always prevailed as an authentic tradition in welcoming visitors from different cultures. Manama has been recognized as the capital of Gulf Tourism for 2016 by the tourism ministers in the Gulf Cooperation Council.
On this occasion, Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority issued an events calendar for 2016 so visitors can make the most of their time during their stay in the Kingdom. Building on these achievements and the government’s approach to increase the contributions of the tourism sector to the economy, a new tourism identity has also been revealed under the slogan “Our country is yours”.
