"It is important to be respectful of Bahrain's culture and customs when visiting the country. It is considered impolite to show public displays of affection, so it is best to avoid kissing or hugging in public. It is also important to dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites. It is also important to be aware of the local customs regarding food and drink, as some foods and drinks are considered taboo in Bahrain. Additionally, it is important to be respectful of the local language and to avoid using profanity. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local laws and to avoid engaging in any activities that are illegal in Bahrain," said a member in Bahrain.
