Here's the thing you need to understand, this is a tree in the middle of the desert. So I'll break it down by its main components. Desert: Its pretty hot so bring sunscreen/water. I was there in May and my cell phone overheated while I...More

Visited this place 10 years ago when it was just the tree in the middle of nowhere. While there has been a significant amount of development in the area, the structure that was built makes it more interesting to visit. Walk the perimeter to see...More

First, let's set your expectation level really, really low. It's a tree (a big tree) in the middle of no where. I feel like it's one of those things you do just so you can say you have done it. So for that reason, go!...More

Okay so it’s just a tree but it is a very old tree and is rather interesting up close. The dive through the oil fields (with nodding ‘donkeys’) sets the scene and the desert environment is certainly an interesting experience. There are toilets and a...More

The road to get there is long, windy, through the desert and nothing much to see except oil pipelines and drilling equipment. Better to go on an SUV. The biggest disappointment when you get there is to see what you made that trip for. Yes,...More

Dont bother, the drive was through sandy scrubland with nodding donkeys and pipelines to a little tree on a small hillock. Nothing else there.

it was cool in that the tree is over 400 years old and seems to be the biggest tree out there. There are smaller ones near close-by oases, but it really dominates the little hill. Mesquite trees are native to the Western USA, so how...More

A visit to the Tree of Life is a standard for visiting Bahrain. It's a little more interesting now- they've built an informational perimeter walk around it. The walk has a covered spot that has some information about the site and the tree and markers...More

In a nut shell “ don’t waste your time “ it’s no big deal and it’s not the only tree around as I could see a few others.

I would say the Mercure or Swissotel or Grand Ellite . All are next to the Seef Mall, but their prices might vary. We have the real estate exhibition from next week so the prices might go up slightly.
