Friday March 2nd 2018 I completed the Bahrain Marathon. Find below my full race coverage plus some tourist impressions from Bahrain and it’s capital Manama.
Manama includes the Souk and a few landmarks, of perhaps greatest interest the Manama Fort, which is on the UNESCO Heritage List. Worth to mention is also the Grand Mosque – indeed a very impressive building and featuring free guided tours explaining about the rituals of Islam. I learned a lot! To be recommended is also the Bahrain National Museum and nearby National Theatre.
The city also sports a few shopping malls and some very scenic views across the Persian Gulf. People are friendly and it is completely safe to walk around all times of the day. The climate in March is very accomodating with about 19-20 degrees C night and day.
