****typo at minute 4:50, i meant to say Bahrain is a beautiful COUNTRY not city.***
HELLO EVERYONE! Welcome back to my channel! It is the last video of my Middle Eastern adventures. I know, I know, there's so much unseen footage BECAUSE either I didn't have my camera with me OR no video was allowed, OR I took photos instead. Not to worry, full detailed blogposts will be up on my blog so check back for updates! If you're bummed out I missed filming something you wanted to see, not to worry, I will be back in the Middle East VERY SOON. Any requests on what to see just comment below!
-My friend took me abaya shopping at Abu Hail Centre which is about a 15-20 minute drive from JBR. It was my first time shopping for abayas so I was having a field day! So many patterns, prints, colors, at very reasonable prices! These shop owners are more than willing to bargain a good price with you as well so don't be scared to haggle! I got a beautiful abaya for only $80 thanks to my lovely pal who talked her way to a great price! Just FYI, this is a small indoor shopping centre mostly selling abayas & muslim wear so try to dress conservative as it is frequented by locals!
-Dubai was surprisingly chilly. During the day there was a cool breeze with clear, sunny skies. At night the temperature would fall drastically around high 50s, low 60s. It was beautiful throughout my stay however the water WAS a bit too cold for me at Jumeirah Beach. It was perfect tanning weather though!
-Make sure you visit the Spice & Gold Souks in Old Dubai. And while you're at it, take an "abra" down Dubai Creek, it costs just 1 dirham and you can easily get to the souks by the abra!
-FlyDUBAI has deals throughout the year, flying out of Dubai Terminal 2 which is its local low cost airline. We flew out to Bahrain to visit some friends and got a great deal on flights! If you're in Dubai make sure to check out Fly Dubai to explore other countries nearby! For it being a low cost airline, I was very impressed. I had lots of legroom to stretch, on board entertainment (f.r.i.e.n.d.s THANK THE LORD!) complimentary drinks, friendly staff, and mood lighting. Definitely recommend flying with Fly Dubai! Just make sure you tell your driver TERMINAL 2.
-The Domain Hotel in Bahrain is an absolute must if you're in Manama. The staff was very helpful, rooms are one of the best and state of the art and the views are just to DIE FOR! Not to mention, The Domain has a great Spa, several restaurants and even a lounge where ladies drink for free EVERY DAY. Could it get any better?
-If you're ever in Bahrain, make sure you take a scenic drive to Amwaj Islands. Visit the Dragon Hotel to eat at their restaurant and be prepared to have lunch with a fabulous view!
-Bahrain was amazing and I will make sure to film more when I return!
