Well I've been to Manama and have lived in Doha, but have never been to Abu Dhabi. Personally I prefer Doha to Manama - it seems a bit cleaner and well ordered (but not by much.). But if you're hankering for a quick drink of beer while you're there then Manama is the place for you as you get get it in restaurants a little bit easier than in Doha. Also, Doha's corniche is more or less finished but Manama's was a bit of a building site when I was there (December 2009.) Reply to this

Thanks Jason, but what do you mean by Corniche? Reply to this

A corniche is a stretch of road that runs alonside the sea. The one in Doha is quite nice but there are no cafes etc to stop along. The one in Bahrain is full of building works. Reply to this

I just came back from Doha 2 weeks ago it was very hot however you can a have a gentle walk by the sea in the evening. In the morning stay in an air conditioned place under a roof , its summer time 😊 .I stayed in W Doha hotel really I was impressed with the level of service its near to the City center.<snip>. Khor Al Udeid is a nice place for adventure, unbelievably drivers but the dessert is terribly dirty

If you ask me I think Abu Dhabi will be the good choice among them. Apart from that, I had been there with my friends and it was the really good time we had there. Also, don't forget to experience the cruise trip there, you may take help from tour operators like "tour-dubai" for booking a cruise trip there. Reply to this

We used site <snip> Millions of excursions in Abu Dhabi, so it was hard to figure out the difference. But Client support helped. Useful advices.
