Manama Expat Events

Enjoy your Manama Expat Experience

The modern capital of independent Bahrain opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the Al-Fateh Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world,, the traditional celebration of Bahrain’s Mouloud, to savoring a dish of muhammar. The InterNations network is a place made for the Manama expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in Bahrain. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Manama, from ʺWhat cultural taboos should I respect in a liberal Muslim country such as this?ʺ to ʺAre there any Latino expat groups in Bahrain?ʺ
