Satisfy your passion for shopping and love of history and culture on this unforgettable journey to the old capital of Manama. You'll begin alongside the locals at the city's clamoring souq, a warren of old streets that beckon with merchants selling exotic spices, rare antiques and even local medicines. In fact, you'll meet one of the revered "Medicine Men" for a little local insight into Bahrain's healing secrets. Leaving the Manama Souq, head to a handicraft market where you'll find all sorts of trinkets and treasures, and enjoy demonstrations by local crafters who proudly share their traditions. Next, it's off to the Al Jasra Handicrafts Centre for some free time to shop among some of Bahrain's finest basket weavers and pottery artisans. Your shopping adventure concludes with a delicious Bahraini lunch set in the middle of the "Pearling Pathway", a historic district that's home to 17 UNESCO World Heritage buildings.
