The Souk is located in the very centre of Manama and so quite easy to visit. Anyway, apart some interesting buildings around and some photos there is not a lot to see.

Date of experience: December 2018

Maybe because we have been to many big souk in Dubai so this wasn't good enough even though our uber driver said that this is the biggest souk already. But over all, if you want a place to shop gifts or coffee break.

The old Souk behind Bab el Bahrain is a wonderful area to walk through. There are some really pleasant old restaurants in the area. It’s very safe and friendly. If you get lost, just ask and someone will send you back to the main gate....More

Here you will find all kind of staff that locals may need , but the place is of little to no interest to visitors ! Just OK if you want to have a glimpse a local life in Manama...

Bab el-Bahrain means Bahrain Gate as it was the entrance to Bahrain Island when travelers use to visit Bahrain through Manama Port. You will see the real Bahrain Traditional souk ( shopping area )
