The amazing Avenues Mall- This is the best mall I have ever seen in any city and super huge. It has around 900 stores. A bit less than Dubai mall but twice the length of Dubai Mall. It spans for 2 big city blocks, you can see how huge it is by the picture below from Google

Overall a nice flight with United. The seats were comfortable, but the legroom could be better. The crew were very nice and friendly. Bahrain airport was a small and old looking airport that does the job right.
