As with most Middle Eastern cities Juffair/Manama is a shopper's heaven. You will find everything to satisfy your shopcraze. All the major brands have their own shops here or can be found in the numerous department stores. Expensive shops/boutiques are being found on the Al Shabab Road or in the luxurious, airconditioned shopping malls in Juffair/Manama. It's nice to visit a cool shopping mall after shopping/walking outside in (very) high temperatures. For example Moda Mall, a ultra high-end shopping complex on the ground floor of the two 50-storey landmark Bahrain World Trade Towers, the Kingdom's largest and most exciting array of top luxury retailers.
For traditional red clay pottery, weaving baskets/products and pearls a visit to the Juffair/Manama souks is a must. Here you walk around traditional open air shops smelling all the herbs, spices, incense and tobacco and trying to haggle the prizes.
