Truly cosmopolitan

Bearing in mind I seem to have spent much of the last six weeks travelling, I can confirm that Bahrain is my new favourite airport in this part of the world. The DVD selection is much better than Dubai, and includes a lot of films that are banned in Dubai (Monty Python's Life of Brian has been spotted, as well as some nearly-adult movies). And also, no real queues at passport control (hurray!).

Bahrain really is very civilised - they take any currency in Costa Coffee and you can buy alcohol without a licence. So far, the island has the lead on Dubai in the cosmopolitan stakes ...

I have to disagree. To me Bahrain's airport feels like a greek fishing village, they open it when 'the plane' arrives.

Get there too early and there is nothing to do. er, a bit like Bahrain.

I'm no fan of Dubai's though, see my post below...
