Solo female traveler in Bahrain

I plan on having a 23 hour layover in Bahrain and I would like to get out of the airport and explore. I am a 22-year-old solo female traveler from the United States and a lot of people are warning me that it is not safe. What are your thoughts?

It's perfectly safe - if you hang out around the Juffair area (15 mins from airport) you'll see more Americans than anywhere else in the middle east

A 23 hour layover is long - you may choose to take a hotel and rest/freshen up and explore.

Its safe and you should just keep to the well trodden areas of Seef, Manama, Juffair.

What you will do and see depends on your likes and preferences.
