From its water sports to its enticing architecture, travellers from around the world are discovering the delights of Kuwait. Kuwait tourism incorporates a range of holidays, from cultural breaks to shopping trips.
Things to do in Kuwait
Kuwait City, the country’s dynamic capital, is bustling with attractions and activities. Visit the city’s architectural highlights, including the impressive Kuwait Towers and Liberation Tower. The Grand Mosque, the biggest in Kuwait, offers guided tours for visitors, and the beautiful mosaics of nearby Seif Palace are a fascinating example of Islamic art.
To learn more about Kuwait’s history and culture, visit the National Museum and Sadu House, which is dedicated to preserving traditional Bedouin art and culture. For visitors travelling with children, the Scientific Centre is Kuwait’s premier family attraction, offering fascinating nature films on a 3D cinema screen and much more.
Kuwait’s location on the Persian Gulf also means that it has first-rate beaches and a range of water sports for holidaymakers to enjoy. Arrange a scuba diving trip or rent a boat to explore Kuwait from off-shore.
Shopping in Kuwait
Away from the major attractions on the tourism map, shopping is a favourite activity with travellers and business visitors in Kuwait. The country’s luxury department store, Villa Moda, houses major design labels – including Gucci and Prada – in a sleek glass building. Souq Sharq, Marina Mall and The Avenues are all major shopping malls in Kuwait. They offer stores and attractions for the whole family, while travellers looking for gold jewellery in Kuwait should visit the Souq Al Mubarakiya in the city-centre.
