Alia Flowers
Serene Darwish runs a flower empire in Bahrain called Alia Flowers; it is a business that started in 1978 by her late mother. The quality of their flowers is second to none. I’ve never bought tulips that lasted an entire week from anywhere else!

Manama and Gold Souq
Anyone who visits Bahrain must go to the gold souq! They’re not really accessories, nor are they vintage, but Bahraini gold is part of our history and tradition.
