When was the last time you followed scent? A waft of Halwa will gently wrap itself around you, pick you up and show you to its source in the Souq of Muharraq.
In this historical town, we will explore all the delicious street foods and traditional dishes on offer. We will visit a Halwa factory, walk through the souq, try some Matai; a traditional snack originating from India.
We then explore the gorgeous Bahrain Pavilion presented at the Milan Expo 2015 which won 2nd place for Architectural design and has been reassembled in Muharraq. We’ll visit a typical traditional Bahraini house with a beautiful courtyard and a wind tower where you can take some great photos and envision a traditional Bahraini lifestyle (pre-oil era).
From there, we’ll walk over to enjoy some Arabic coffee, through the old winding streets, and find the wonderful ladies at the Kurar house that weave in a traditional technique, called Kurar.
Finally, we’ll make our way back to the center of the souq where you can get yourself some of the delicious snacks you’ve tried.
