    The most popular traditional dessert is Halwa Showaiter, also known as Bahraini Halwa. It's a must try.

    AL Zalabiyah is also a popular dessert in the Gulf especially during Ramadan. It is served with Arabic coffee.

    I would definitely suggest the Bahrain National Museum and the Al Fateh Grand Mosque - both can be done on the same day as they are close together. Don't try to visit the Mosque on a Friday though as they probably won't do tours on that day. Also up near these is the Manama Souk which has an amazing spice section as well as numerous jewellery shops. Just be prepared to be hounded by the trinket-sellers wanting you to buy toy camels and knock-off watches.

    If your stay includes a Friday, most of the hotels do an all-you-can-eat buffet. My personal favourite is the Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa Hotel on the east coast of the island, but that could be a trek depending on where you are staying. If the weather is good, book a table outside and stay for the sunset.

    There are lots of good restaurants in Adliya. Try out one of the many shisha cafes such as Al Bindaira Cafe and have some traditional Arabic food and fresh fruit juice.

    If you can afford it, a driving experience at the Formula 1 Bahrain is well worth doing.

    Hope you have a great time.
