Living in Bahrain (Manama)


Hi everyone, new to this group. My work looks to be sending me (single guy, no family) to Bahrain for 1 year to complete a planning project. During this time my accommodation and work expenses (phone, internet, electricity etc.) will be paid by the company but I'm likely to get an allowance for day-to-day expenses for food, travel etc.

Could anyone give me guidelines on what it costs for food (eating out and making my own), travel (is there public transport, or are taxis better, is there hire cars too for weekends) and any other tips I should know.

I'm coming from Australia so hot weather is normal for me.
