SOCIAL HINTS
------------
RELIGION ISLAM.
SOCIAL LIFE TENDS TO BE QUITE FORMAL. IT SHOULD BE NOTE
THAT IT IS VERY IMPOLITE TO LET THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET
BE SEEN WHEN IN COMPANY. TRADITIONAL BELIEFS AND CUSTOMS ARE
OF STRONG INFLUENCES. ATTITUDES TO WOMEN ARE MORE LIBERAL THAN
IN MOST GULF STATES. SMOKING IS VERY COMMON. ALCOHOL IS ONLY
AVAILABLE IN LARGE HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS.


BUSINESS HINTS
--------------
THE BAHRAINIS ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR HONESTY IN THEIR BUSINESS
DEALINGS. FORMALITY IS MORE A RULE THAN IN THE WEST, AND
MEN SHOULD WEAR SMART SUITS & TIE. MEETING SHOULD BE ARRANGED
IN ADVANCE. BARGAINING IS COMMON PRACTICE. ARABS REGARD THEIR
WORD AS THEIR BOND AND EXPECT OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.
