Embark on a New Life in Manama

The capital of Bahrain, Manama is a rich metropolis of skyscrapers and activity. However, there are still traditional elements of Bahraini life to be found, including the famed storytellers and poets who perform to music and the bustling activity of the restored Bab el-Bahrain Souq. As the economic center accounts for a significant portion of GDP, Manama is home to a number of financial institutions and the headquarters of several multinational corporations. Key industries include retail at the luxury shopping malls, insurance, banking, and exporting of cars, metal ores and electronics. The Bahrain Grand Prix helps to boost tourism, which is also a key part of the economy.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Dubai or London, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    Despite the very diverse, very international character of Bahrain, I felt quite lonely as an expat -- before joining InterNations, that is.
