Bahrain is an island country in the Persian Gulf and is often overlooked as a holiday destination– much to the detriment of anyone who elects not to visit. The country has grown into a perfect representation of a successful Gulf nation, with the fact it hosts an annual Formula 1 Grand Prix illustrating just how far it has come. The capital city of Manama is a diverse and fascinating city, home to the Bahrain National Museum, showcasing artefacts from the ancient Dilmun Empire.
