Bahrain is made up of 33 islands and sits in the Persian Gulf off the Saudi Arabian coast.

Petroleum production and processing account for most of Bahrain's exports. It has a growing banking and financial services sector, particularly Islamic banking, driven by demand for oil.

Manama, the capital is a blend of the old and the new. For shopping, the souk, in the old town, is worth exploring as well as the many modern shopping centres. There’s a choice of restaurants, serving local and international dishes, nightclubs and cinemas.

The year round good weather means water sports and golf are popular pastimes.
