The Central Business District (CBD) is located in central Manama, the capital of Bahrain. Many of the city’s hotels, office buildings, shops and restaurants are located in the CBD. It lies along the northern coast of Manama. The CBD is considered one of the best shopping areas in the city; it has the Manama Souq (market, in Arabic), located near the Bab Al Bahrain (the Gateway of Bahrain). The old souq has a variety of goods, from spices, condiments, textiles, electronics to jewelry.

In addition, the Bahrain World Trade Centre and the Bahrain Financial Harbour; this has Bahrain’s tallest towers, and many of the country’s largest banks and companies are also situated in the CBD.
