Kuwait City City Guide

Brief History

Kuwait City, the only major urban center in the small desert country of Kuwait, was settled in the early 18th century by nomads from the Arabian Peninsula. Located in a sheltered bay in the strategically-critical Persian Gulf, it grew extremely quickly. Located on the margins of the Ottoman Empire, Kuwait City developed a reputation for fiercely defending its independence. When oil was discovered in the 1930s, Kuwait became one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with a per-capita income even greater than that of the United States (in fact, in the 1960s, Kuwait’s per-capita income was five times the U.S.’s).

Transportation

All flights to Kuwait City—and, in fact, all flights to Kuwait—come into Kuwait International Airport. The airport is fairly small, but is not far from the city center. Many hotels offer shuttle service from the airport; the only other option is to take a taxi.

While there is a bus system in Kuwait City, it is notoriously unreliable and erratic, so almost no one uses it unless absolutely necessary. While it is cheaper than a taxi, the amount of time that one typically spends waiting at a bus shelter more than makes up for the cost. Taxis, then, are the most practical way to get around. Kuwait City has several competing taxi services including call cabs and “Orange Taxis,” which drive along a fixed route. In any taxi, you are likely to end up sharing the ride with a local, as the drivers will stop for any fare they can find. While somewhat inconvenient for travelers in a hurry, this is a great way to meet the locals.

Popular Attractions

  • Fortunately for tourists who are unused to the desert climate, Kuwait City sports a large Aqua Park near the ocean, where you can go to cool off from the hot sun.
  • The Grand Mosque is a must-see sites in this city. It offers tours, so visitors can see the inside of this impressive building.
  • There are several fine museums in Kuwait City, including the National Musuem, Science and Natural History Musuem, and the Zoological Park.
  • The majestic and somewhat outlandish Kuwait Towers are located on the seaside and make great locations for photos.

Food

Food in Kuwait City tends to be Indian, Lebanese, or American. The city is not known for local cuisine. There are several excellent restaurants serving food from all over the world – wander around the city center and find one that suits your palate and your budget. Also don’t neglect the local fish market, where you can buy excellent seafood fresh from the waters of the Persian Gulf.

Tips for Travelers

  • Kuwait is a somewhat conservative society, although by no means as much so as some of its neighbors. While foreigners can get away with wearing shorts, revealing clothing is considered disrespectful, especially in and around the mosques.
  • Kuwait is an extremely safe and affluent place. After their flights to Kuwait, many visitors feel that they have landed in a bastion of stability amid precarious neighbors such as Iran, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.
