The premier landmark in this rich and attractive city is the Grand Mosque, but the many modern shopping malls and traditional markets are also well worth exploring. The Kuwait Towers and the treasures of the National Museum shouldn’t be missed, nor the resplendent Emir’s Palace and Bayt al-Badr historic mansion.
Arriving in Kuwait
A major trading point since the 1600s, Kuwait is a small but powerful country that plays a key role in the political and commercial success of the region. It is now turning into a popular tourist destination, and welcomes visitors from all over the world. Kuwait is a fascinating country with plenty to see and do.
Book a flight to Kuwait with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a city and country that has traditional values but a very modern outlook. Its petroleum and oil wealth has led to the development of resorts and luxury hotels, but there are also plenty of older attractions to fascinate and entertain visitors.
Failaka Island is just a short boat ride away from Kuwait City, and has a selection of Bronze Age and Greek archaeological sites worth visiting that demonstrate just how important on the Mediterranean trading routes Kuwait was through the ages.
The islands harbour is bustling with dhows, giving you a glimpse of Kuwaiti life outside the modern city.
Back in Kuwait City itself a good place to find traditional crafts and goods is the Al-Mubarakiya shopping district, where you’ll find plenty of souvenirs to remind you of your trip.
Much of Kuwait is flat desert, but just outside the city you’ll find the Kazmah desert cliffs. This is a great location to do a bit of off-road jeep driving, and on a clear day the view from the top of the cliffs stretches out across the bay.
Flights to Kuwait with Qatar Airways land at Kuwait International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Kuwait please check the visa and passport requirements.
