Business & leisure Working Hours The working week in Bahrain tends to vary between 40 to 48 hours, depending on the particular company's policy. Office hours are usually from 8.30 or 9.00 am to 5.30 or 6.00 pm, Sunday to Thursday and the weekend falls on Friday and Saturday. There are no differences in time keeping between summer and winter. In the month of Ramadan, the working day is reduced to six hours per labour law. Shopping in Bahrain Bahrain, and especially Manama, is a shopper's paradise. This is true whether you are strolling through the many souks of Bahrain or through the magnificent malls spread across the country. Pay a visit to Bab Al-Bahrain Souk, a string of dainty yet memorable shops that line the streets behind Bab Al Bahrain (or the Gateway of Bahrain). The perfect place to stock up on souvenirs, the shops offer a true experience of the tradition and culture of the Arabian Gulf.
