King Fahd Causeway – Connecting Saudi and Bahrain

King Fahd Causeway in Manama is a structure that connects two countries by the Arabian Gulf—Saudi and Bahrain.

It is 26 kilometres long and looks like a humpback whale from afar.

There’s a small island between two countries, like in the middle of the sea, that serves as the border. And they aptly call it as the Border Island for obvious reasons.

Today, the bridge has more than 25,000 cars passing every day.

Standing on the Border Island, this is what Saudi Arabia looks like—on a rainy day.

From Manama, hire a taxi and ask him to bring you all the way to the Border Island. Stay there for a while, especially during sunset. I was told that the view is spectacular as the sun is setting down. The whole three days I was there, it was raining! The only touristy thing I did was visiting Bahrain Fort. And right after I finished strolling the ancient monument, it poured again. Dang!
