City not built for pedestrians. Corniche (boardwalk) under construction. Pier to city by bus transfer USD 10 p.p.. it drops you off in the city center next to a mall. This is basicly it in town.

Mina Sulman, Bahrain

Interesting Souq with mostly local people visiting the souq. Long 40-60 min bus transfers ship to city.

Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.

You may walk from the ship along the Corniche to the Marina Mall, which took us 150 minutes walking. Very nice walk!!! Lots to see. The we took a taxi back to the ship
