Isolated from its other Gulf counterparts,Kuwait retains its old Arab charm amidst tinges of western liberalism. The city is less glitzy, yet boasts of beautiful architecture, tradition, religious monuments and some fine cuisine. With a bunch of friendly and welcoming locals, travel to Kuwait City will indeed be a fulfilling one.
The capital, Kuwait City, is a bustling metropolis with high rises as well as mosques and palaces alike, that paint its skyline. It survived through the Iraqi invasion and now stands with pride to tell its tale, as captured by the House of National Works. There are some excellent museums, one particularly dedicated to the dying Bedouin form of art. There are the idyllic islands with attractive scuba diving opportunities, or just for sunbathing and soaking in the azure waters. There is the stunner of the House of Mirrors, as created and designed by Lidia. There are the Kuwait Tower and the Liberation Tower, standing with dignity, an ode to Kuwait's liberation and prosperity. There is the spectacular Grand Mosque, amidst many others that celebrate Islam and Islamic architecture, the Sief Palace which is yet again a representation of traditional Islamic architecture. There are amusement parks and places of entertainment in the likes of the Aqua Park, the Entertainment City (Kuwait's own Disneyland) and the Ice Skating Rink. There are a plethora of species to marvel at in their natural habitats, as exhibited by the Scientific Centre and the Kuwait Zoo. There are the colourful and atmospheric souks. There are mouth-watering Machboos and popular favourite, most authentic Shawarma. There is an atmosphere of intrigue. So when there is the Middle East on the agenda, there got to be Kuwait City on the priority list!
