Don't bother! It is in the middle of an oil field and so it is surrounded by sand; if you blink, you will miss it...

It's a bit of a drive to see the tree, and there isn't much out there, except the tree. It's not spectacular, or even all that impressive (although it is a big tree), but it's something you have to do in Bahrain.

It wasn't anything special. It looks like they started to building an area around it but now it's just covered with sand. If you have nothing better to do for a few hours and want to check it off your list go for it. It took 30 minutes to get there and we stayed about 10. It was hot and... More

The tree itself has not much to see or even any historic sign to be read so you can understand its meaning... no information at all. But the surroundings are interesting: good to take pictures in the oil wells around !

The tree of life is beautiful but far from Manama. The taxi to go was 26 BD. You had to go through oil fields and it was not very pretty. The tree has been enclosed by a wall and outside the wall was the only litter I have seen in Bahrain.

When we eventually (one needs patience and a sense of adventure to do so) found it, the tree of life was more impressive than we imagined. There is also a nice info display. The only downside is the rather rundown surroundings.

We visited the tree of life during a sand storm. It was very intresting see a tree in middle of the desert. It is of the main sights. If you go to Bahrain it is something you might want to visit. There is nothing else to see if you go visit the tree. We enjoyed seeing even if the sand... More

As I read others reviews I laughed thinking, they were missing the meaning of the tree... however, after driving through a seemingly endless spaghetti of roads and pipeline we arrived at the Tree of Life.... There were about six other cars and it was that...a large tree in the middle of the desert. It isn't exactly spectacular and as we... More
