What is the best way to travel around Kuwait?

Undoubtedly the most convenient way of traveling around Kuwait City is by taxi. Some taxis have fare meters, but they are rarely utilized. Because of this, it is always best to agree on a price before driving off. Radio taxis are most commonly connected with hotels and typically charge steeper prices, although you do get a higher level of security. A much cheaper option are the orange street taxis. They are just about everywhere and easy to hail. The drivers will try to increase your fare so be prepared to stick to your negotiated price. They often try to blame traffic or miscommunication on your part, so stand your ground.

What are some things to do in Kuwait?

While in Kuwait City, explore the historic Grand Mosque and Seif Palace. The Kuwait Towers have a restaurant and viewing platform. Jump on a ferry and visit Failaka, one of Kuwait’s islands. A visit to Kuwait is not complete without a trip to the desert. Get up close and personal with camel herds. Drink camel milk and pet the baby camels. You may even get invited to take a ride. If you enjoy the arts, visit the House of Mirrors, built by Italian artist Lidia and her late Kuwaiti husband. The entire home is covered in mirrors and you can even get a personal tour from Lidia herself. The tour includes tea and homemade cookies.

What is the climate like in Kuwait?

Kuwait’s summers have high humidity with temperatures reaching higher than 100 degrees. The weather cools to around 70 F in the winter. Intense rainfall and heavy winds occur from December through February.

When is the best time to fly to Kuwait?

Avoid the rainy season by reserving flights to Kuwait before or after the winter months. Due to political unrest in Kuwait and surrounding Gulf countries, U.S. tourists looking to book Kuwait flights and travel should check with the U.S. Department of State before traveling.

Peak Season: Summer and spring seem to simultaneously be the most hated and loved seasons to travel to Kuwait. While summer temperatures can reach 122 degrees F, the humidity dies down in August. Spring rakes in sandstorms one after another, but this doesn’t deter tourists booking flights to Kuwait for the Hala festival, a cultural and entertainment extravaganza. Love it or hate it, spring and summer are the best times to book flights to Kuwait.

Off-peak Season: While rainfall drives less people to visit between December and February, it’s the perfect time to find affordable accommodations and cheap flights to Kuwait. Similarly, Ramadan draws fewer crowds because of closed shops and restaurants, but also allows a bit for solace on your trip.

What is the best way to travel around Kuwait?

Use the public transportation system to get from the airport to your Kuwait destination once your flight to Kuwait lands. Bus service is an inexpensive option, and spans throughout most of the country on multiple routes.

If you decide to take a taxi, you’ll need to negotiate a price with your driver as soon as you enter the cab. Most cab services in Kuwait don’t run on meter systems. Renting a car requires an international driver’s license, or a driving permit from another Gulf country, but either way, you’ll need to purchase car insurance, which can be done at the rental agency.

What is good to know if travelling to Kuwait?

  • Red Fort: To add a little history to your Kuwait travel, visit the Red Fort, which played a role in the 1920’s blockade of Al-Jahra by the king of Saudi Arabia. A low mud structure located near the highway, the Red Fort lives up to its name, having everything from the nape to the color of its walls painted in a red hue. Built around an open courtyard, it’s a quirky spot to walk in and out of to experience Kuwait’s past and present.
  • Failaka Island: Failaka Island serves as one of Kuwait’s main archaeological sites. Greeks arrived there in the 4th century and the Bronze Age Dilmun civilization spread for two more centuries. At the center of the island, there’s a temple attainable to visitors, but be careful – at one time, the area was filled with mines by the Iraqis. Although they’ve been cleared, those booking flights to Kuwait should be watchful and pay close attention to their surroundings. Because of the controversial spot’s stunning location, the island is being considered to become a potential luxury holiday resort for tourists. And at just a ferry ride away from Kuwait’s city center, it’s not a bad idea.
  • Liberation Tower: For politically-minded travelers booking flights to Kuwait, the Liberation Tower is a must. Taller than the Eiffel tower, and named after the coalition that freed Kuwait from Iraq, the structure is a true symbol of the country”s emancipation. Three working areas include a space for public communications, a plant and equipment center, and a revolving observation level and restaurant. Its 18 elevators hold 21 passengers each. Some are glass enclosed, and provide amazing city views.
  • Gold Souk: You’d be remiss if you didn’t add shopping to your Kuwait travel agenda. Whether you’re in the market for gold and other precious metals, the experience is certainly worth the visit – the Gold Souk is nothing like any mall, arcade, or shopping area you’ve ever seen. Step inside the beautiful building that houses 18, 21, and 22 carat gold selections, which have all been government inspected and prepped for sale. You’ll get a receipt for purity and weight to ensure the quality. If you’re looking to sell gold, you can gets its worth at the Souk.
