The Kingdom of Bahrain is a fascinating and contemporary land that continues to develop and diversify on many levels. Although quite small country, car rental in Manama could come very handy for adventured holidaymakers who would like to see as much as possible during their stay. Here are top five things easily accessible by car.
1.Formula One Grand Prix – 45 Minutes Away From Manama
Even though you are not a fanatic Formula one fan, if visiting Bahrain during Grand Prix, take your time to see it. The circuit is situated in ex desert land approx. forty-five kilometers out of Manama city. The only accessible route to the circuit is for now only from Manama downtown via the major highway. Due to construction areas along the highway, journey may take a little more than usual thirty minutes. There are no other means of transport available for Formula Circuit. There are no trains, no shuttles except for expensive taxi ride, which will definitely cost you probably more than one day rental of the vehicle.
2. “Al Areen” Wild Life Park
This wildlife animal park was established by The Crown Prince of Bahrain himself. Perfect escape for families and those who love animals. By visiting this conversation area you will have the honour to see animals, indigenous to Middle East, like scimitar-horned oryx, endangered desert antelopes, “Arabian oryx”, “Nanger dama”, “Nubian ibex”, wild goat, “Impala”. Park is located only 35 kilometers from Manama. On the causeway follow the signs for Riffa.At the “El Zallaq Beach Highway” you will see the entrance to the part. Park is accessible only by private transport.
3. Look For “Tree of Life”
More than four hundred years old majestic tree, survived almost five centuries in the heart of the desert. Locals even believe that the place where tree is located used to be an original garden of Eden. Reasonably easy to find if you head south on the new double highway heading to “Durrat Al Bahrain” until the Bridge number 3 then turn right and follow the traffic signs. The tree will be on your left side.
