The Manama Souk is one of the oldest markets in the country. It used to be the place to shop, but the new malls have killed the souk trader. It is clean, the traders are friendly and you get to see some very traditional Bahraini things - like the colorful spice market. You will see old Bahraini men chatting in the outdoor tea shops and the gold shops are great. At the entrance at the Bab al Bahrain (gate of Bahrain) is a really delightful souvenir shop run by the government.
