Things to do in Kuwait
- The Kuwait National Museum is home to a variety of exhibits ranging from archaeological finds of Failaka to Islamic art collections and treasures retrieved during past pearl diving expeditions.
- Scuba diving and pearl diving could be indulged into through numerous centres and is one of the main attractions during the Annual Kuwayt Festival.
- There are a number of ethnic restaurants to choose from and it is only here in the world that it is possible to smoke a Shisha, meaning hookah, along with the meal. Others offer shisha after a meal or just with tea and potentially snacks.
- Venues like the Musical Fountains, the Grand Mosque, Fish market and Municipal gardens should be included in the itinerary as they provide an insight into the local way of life.
Resorts like Courtyard Kuwait City and Radisson SAS Kuwait make the stay heavenly and comfortable beyond belief but budget hotels are equally good and offer the basic contemporary amenities.
Kuwait is one of the safest places in the Middle East but for their taxi drivers and is an exceptional country in that region with regards to clothing. However, it is dry state and although people do brew concoctions at home, flouting the law openly is strictly not recommended.
