Travel Tips to Kuwait City (KWI)
Kuwait City – capital of the emirate with the same name
Flights to Kuwait City bring you to the capital of business and culture in Kuwait. More than 2.4 million people live in the urban centre of this metropolis. The city is a popular destination for foreign specialists who are looking for work here. Particularly impressive is the skyline of Kuwait City, which stretches for 8 miles along the coast of the Persian Gulf. The port is crucial for the export of oil products and other transshipment wares. It’s interesting to note that the ISESCO pronounced Kuwait City the capital of Islamic culture in 2016.
Breathtaking views over Kuwait City
One of the landmarks of Kuwait City is the Water Towers, which were built in 1979 and can be seen from afar. In total there are three towers, but only two are used as water reservoirs. The third smaller tower exists to illuminate the other two towers at night. The 600-foot tower also contains an observation platform, from which you’ll discover an amazing view of Kuwait City. You can even see the palace of Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait’s Emir, from the tower restaurant.
A visit to the oldest souk in Kuwait City
Between the streets Mubarak al-Kabeer, Ahmad al-Jaber and Ali al-Salem you’ll find the almost 200 year old Souk Al-Mubarakiya, in the heart of Kuwait City. At this market you can buy unique antiquities, Arabic specialities, carpets, jewellery, textiles and also modern wares of all kinds. You’ll find yourself transported to an oriental world through the scent of oils and spices. In contrast to many other Souks, the booths are arranged orderly and leave relatively wide, paved roads. If you are looking for souvenirs, you’ll definitely find them here.
Visit the Kuwait Science and Natural History Museum
If you are planning to fly to Kuwait City and are interested in natural history - especially the development of the mineral industry in this region - you should definitely visit the Kuwait Science and Natural History Museum. In this museum, which opened in 1972, you’ll learn how the Kuwait emirate became so successful through its oil production. You’ll also find many exciting departments here, dealing with space science, electronic engineering and natural history. The Museum on Abdulla Al-Mubarak St. even has its own gym.
