Quite interesting place in the middle of nowhere. It's better to go there with friends. We spent a beautiful day!

The drive to the tree of life was interesting and the landscape was nothing like home (Canada). This was a very popular site and worth a stop. I bet an evening visit would be impressive with the tree lit up. Ice cream vendor located at...More

A tree out in the dessert. Pretty neat if you read the history behind it. I’ve been out to see it many times and it never gets old. A must see if you are in Bahrain!

I would say the Mercure or Swissotel or Grand Ellite . All are next to the Seef Mall, but their prices might vary. We have the real estate exhibition from next week so the prices might go up slightly.
