Bahrain was one of the first states in the Gulf to discover oil, which has helped it gather the majority of its wealth. Bahrain is a very small country that is connected to Saudi Arabia by a bridge. While most of the population is Shia Muslim, the country is ruled by a Sunni Muslim ruling family and elite. This has recently lead to armed conflict and protests. There have been recent violent protests and terrorist attacks in Bahrain. Expats should avoid large crowds and use their discretion. Conservative attire is also advised.
