Glad I went but won't ever need to go again

I understand that this is an important tourist attraction, but there is nothing there apart from the tree. You need a 4x4 to get to it (it's off road!) and it's only a tree.....that's it!

I like historical places when I go on vacation and I will definitely read up on this to see what more I can find out. It wasn't far from where I was staying so it wasn't that long of a drive to get there. Being out in the middle of nowhere it makes for a cool picture with nothing else... More

It is a miracle to see a tree survive decades in the middle of desert alone, good outing in winter with food packs, nice drive to the location

It's a tree. In a desert. Surrounded by what looks like a refugee camp. Literally nothing else there. Save petrol and look at it on the internet.

Yes, it is a tree in the desert. Yes it is old. People have been disrespecting the meaning of this tree. Carving their names into the tree, writing on the tree etc.. this is a good time filler, and you get to see a remote part of Bahrain.

It's cool to see, but it's a treck and there are no facilities around. You'll see families and tourists hanging out and having picnics, do the same. Plus side, it doesnt take long to visit, and not even that long to get to.

The tree of life is in the middle of the dessert. It is surrounded by tents and oil activity's but nice to see because of the difference, oil and a tree.
