Stop-over in Bahrain - what to see and do in Manama?

edited September 2009 in Middle East
I have a stop-over in Bahrain next month and wonder if there is much for me to see and do in Manama? Is the airport close to the city, and is there any transport available from the terminal? I would like to rent a car and do a bit of sightseeing if it's at all possible, although I’m also open to a good tour. I have about 24 hours to kill and want to make the most of the experience. What are the best places to eat and shop? Anything amazing I shouldn’t miss seeing while in Manama?
