VIRTUAL TOUR FROM BAHRAIN:The Pearling Path in the Kingdom of Bahrain is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site!
Al Muharraq was the country’s capital in the 19th Century and still has much of the attraction of an old-fashioned traditional Bahraini city, with its charming buildings, narrow streets, and fine historic houses with their traditional Arab-Gulf style of architecture.
With the Pearling Path tour, one will enjoy an insight into the old city of Muharraq and information about Bahrain that is most probably unheard of. Guests will be fascinated by the traditional old Bahraini houses, their design, art, and atmosphere. Each house in Al Muharraq tells a different story talking about the history of Bahrain, Pearl diving. This tour includes an exclusive entrance to Bahrain Pavilion and Bahrain Pearl Path monument where the speaker will be explaining the importance of their existence throughout the history of Bahrain. Finally, guests will view the local Bahraini coffee shop and get to see the traditional life, and Bahraini traditional attire (thobe) and the way the Arabic Bahraini tea, coffee, dates, sweets, and Tikka are served and their ingredients.
