What surprised you most when visiting Manama?
Based on my research and likewise my friends' visiting to Manama (Bahrain), there seems to be some items which surprised you, such as:
- Sultry weather which is unpleasantly hot and humid.
- Visiting lovely/hospitable folks
- Encountering crowed protests of Shia Muslims against discrimination ...
Extra information regarding the protests of Shias of Bahrain:
Perhaps you reach Bahrain in the time of protest(s) of Bahraini Shias, which can surprise you!
Let's frankly announce that there seems to be discrimination there, as occasionally it is shown in impartial media that many of Bahraini Shias are protesting for that (to obtain their common rights). The negative remarkable issue is that those people of Bahrain who are protesting against the government for their rights, are deemed as the majority of Bahrain's population. Factually, they are Shia Muslims who are approximately 70% of all Bahrainis.
