Al Zubarah’s vast air-conditioned shopping malls and the glass and glamour of its daringly designed skyscrapers are nestled beside delightful relics and reminders of the city’s proud heritage as a busy port town.
Historic sites are given equal footing with the brash, modern ones. Head to Bab Al Bahrain, known as Al Zubarah’s Souq, which means ‘gateway to Bahrain’, invoking a grand entrance to the island’s most multi-ethnic market space.
Delight in Arabian sweet shops sharing space with quaint Nepalese cafes and South Indian vegetarian restaurants Stroll through the Central Market which has three main sections – fish, meat, and fruits and vegetables and known for its huge range of seafood dishes from rice specialties to stuffed pastries and grills.
Then at sunset, take a walk down the Al Fateh Corniche where you’ll find many people strolling and jogging and families relaxing on the grass.
