Bahraini Market Culture and Cooking Class

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $124 USD / Adult
Connect with Bahraini culture on an exploration that winds through local markets and teaches you to prepare favorite dishes. Your first stop is the Manama Souq in the heart of the capital city. Wander through this clamorous labyrinth of hawkers selling bargain T-shirts, traditional “sheesha” bottles, gold jewelry and endless Bahraini trinkets. From here, it's off to the local Fish Market, where the day's fresh catch is splashed about and locals come to haggle for their favorites. Next, head to the Fruit and Vegetable Market for a glimpse at Bahrain's agricultural bounty. Finally, you'll travel to the old city of Muharraq, where narrow streets are graced with timeless Arab architecture. Settle in to a historic home that's been transformed into a teaching kitchen and enjoy a hands-on cooking class. Learn to prepare 2-3 local dishes and savor your handiwork, before sitting down to a delicious lunch at a boutique restaurant.
  • Explore the Manama Souq, a maze of merchants selling clothes, spices, antiques and more.
  • Wander through the bustling Fish Market as locals shop for the day's fresh catch.
