Try as it might, Manama lacks the polish and in-your-face commercialism of Doha or Dubai, but therein lies its charm. Yes, you'll find here all the hallmarks of modern Gulf prosperity: vast air-conditioned shopping malls and daringly designed skyscrapers are present in abundance. But the juxtaposition of the city's pearling past and its oil-rich future is everywhere to be seen: in the National Museum set alongside the avant-garde National Theatre, and in the traditional homes of Muharraq with views across the rooftops to the skyscrapers of downtown Manama. Throw in fabulous eating options and a dynamic art scene and you'll soon discover that there's more to Manama than first meets the eye.
