Tourism in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Have guests coming to Kuwait and not sure where to take them? Architecture of Kuwait have posted a handy schedule although I personally don’t agree with some of their activities (flight simulation?) as well as some of their restaurant choices but it’s a good list to build on. When it comes to food I would add Cocoa Room or Early Bird for breakfast. Lunch I would add OFK and Oum Habib. I would definitely add desert places like Chocolate Bar and Life with Cacao. Finally I would add Maki and Slider Station for dinner.

If guests don’t leave Kuwait gaining a few pounds then you’re not doing it right. [Link]

    Entertaining guests in Kuwait.
    1. Drive up the coastal road to catch a glimpse of the Kuwait Towers.
    2. Arrange a week in Dubai.

      Dubai is an overpriced wanna-be NY

      • Ahmed says:

        I’m sure they would take that as a compliment. After that said, you might want to take a good look around at your country, analysing the infrastructure, and admit that you’ve been shammed for years with no development plan. But it’s you’re fault, because your voice is too silent on demanding that you’re government perform for the nation and develop this country at a basic level.

    Where’s Oum Habib?

  4. Baklava says:

    the 5 day tour is missing some more places! Tareq Rajab museum, Elcid calligraphy museum on 5th ring road in jabriya, Martyr’s house in Qurain. I would add the memorial museum but unfortunately it’s an individual/private effort so the museum could have been much better. Elamrecani cultural center whenever they have an exhibition and Dar al athar alislamiya events.

    Mark, also, if they’re visiting in February, ensure you drive them through Ahmadi – we here at KOC take great pride in lighting up this town :)

    We would definately love to liven the list up! It was a quick thought on our end. Keep the comments coming, and we will have an updated one accordingly :)
    Thank you for the comments – Mark ofcourse, and 248AM followers :)

      For nature Lovers / Bird Lovers you can add a birding tour depending on the time of the year.

      A Grand mosque tour, if you get it arranged at the entrance of the mosque or via Aware Center.

    • Julie says:

      Could you kindly give some more information about Bait Al-Bader? I am not sure what it is, or if it is currently open for tours–some google searches say it’s an old house? Thank you!

    The list is OK, gives you some ideas. I had a guest two months ago and took her to Kuwait National Museum. I was quite dissapointed in the first archeological part. Most of the signages were in Arabic, some had only a word of two of English description. The booklet we received was written in really broken English. The entrance / garden looked terrible, however I could see some contructions going on so I assume they are working on it.
    Scientific center was really good though.

    • Baklava says:

      و ما هي المشكلة بأن تكون الإرشادات فقط بالعربية؟ أليست الكويت دولة عربية واللغة العربية هي اللغة الرسمية؟مليت من الأنجلزة إلي صايرة بالديرة. يقال بأن اللغة هي أساس أي أمة .. و إن ماتت اللغة ماتت الامة. شكله أمة إقرأ صارت أمية :)

      • Kasia says:

        Well I get ur point however museums should have their signage in at least in two languages where English is one of them. Are you expect every tourist to know Arabic or your museums are only for Arab speakers.

      • TweeZ says:

        “مليت من الأنجلزة إلي صايرة بالديرة”

        ?عيل شلون بنصير مركز مالي وتجاري

        there has to be a universal language that most will understand.

      • aaa says:

        If you don’t want everything to be in English then maybe Kuwait shouldn’t be 2/3 foreigners?

        • Kasia says:

          @aaa it is not related to number of foreigners living in Kuwait. Tourists come from outside. In my country we have maybe less than 5-10% of foreigners residing, however most museums, entertainment places have signages in local language, English, French and German. Kuwait is an Arabic country and Arabic will always be the first language here, I am not even questioning this. My disappointment was that I wanted to learn more about Kuwait’s history by visiting the museum and my basic Arabic knowledge allowed me only to read and understand bits and pieces from information boards.

  12. realist says:

    A view of Kuwait from Kuwait Towers would be good but totally skip the restaurant, but I guess everyone in Kuwait knows that, the restaurant staff included.

  13. Yousef says:

    And the Kuwait House for National Works Memorial Museum was actually pretty interesting.
