Manama Souq

Manama SouqSaturday 30th May

For a back to the bazzar street shopping experience head to the Old Manama Souk, a veritable cacophony of sights, sounds, tastes and textures all displayed gloriously and haphazardly along the narrow streets of the old city. Here you can browse for treasures ranging from gold jewellry and gifts to exotic spices.

This busy market place includes several traditional and modern shops, stretching from Isa Al Kabeer Avenue on the east-end, Government Avenue on the north and Shaikh Hamad Avenue on the west. Here one gets to see and purchase all possible fabrics, spices, thobes, kaftans, souvenirs, handicrafts, nuts, dry fruits and anything possible.

When visiting Manama, a visit to the souq is worth it, if not to enjoy the brightly coloured display of fresh fruit vegetables, and scents of herbs, nuts and spices, but also to observe local Bahrai people going about their daily routines.
