If you have explored Central America with you family, and feel like you have seen everything there is to be seen, but aren’t ready to go back home, it’s time to start thinking about a new destination. A great place you can visit, where weather is warm and the culture completely different is the small Kingdom of Bahrain.
This is a group of 33 islands located in the Persian Sea. In it you can find diverse attractions, like anything you might want from a modern city, as well as archaeological sites of an ancient culture that lived here for over five thousand years.
It might not be a popular place for travelers from around the world, but it is pretty famous along the Arab states. It has also gained more international attention lately, due to its International F1 Circuit.
