And the country is… *Drum Rolls*
Bahrain is a small country. Unlike its neighbors it does not have attractions that have the title of world’s biggest, largest and firsts to its name. However, that does not stop Bahrain from being a huge draw for tourists from the surrounding Middle-Eastern countries.
Some say the reason is the rich 5000-year old heritage visible throughout the country, while some love the country for the balance it is able to maintain between modern Bahrain and old Bahrain.
Liberal and yet traditional – this is what Bahrain appears to be in equal measures. This is what I love about Bahrain, the island of pearls.
