what to do?

by Kathleen01

Hi all,
I will be visiting my husband in kuwait for one week, he currently works there for a logistics company. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what my daughter and I can do durning the day while he works? I'm a small town girl from Texas so this will be an experience.

Hang out in a hotel coffee shop and look bored -- the Safir is nice. You'll meet some real Arabs.

Depends on how old your daughter is - is she still a kiddy or is she grown up?Kuwait Towers is nice, as is Green Island. Also the souks are worth wandering around if only to soak up the atmosphere. Then there is the Scientific Centre with it's aquarium and discovery place.

Kuwaiti Towers is a good place and it has a water park too. Mall of Kuwait, the science center, hard rock cafe, too.

Travel Tips for Kuwait

the Barbaric Iraqqi Invaders

by angiebabe

Lodged in my thoughts was the history of the Gulf War in which Iraq invaded Kuwait in the 1990s and the international coverage it received - this I guess was what most comes to mind when 'Kuwait' is mentioned.

It was interesting to see the small display of photos up in the Kuwaiti Towers showing the damage done to the towers - or at the least the tower that is open to the public which is used as a viewing platform over the city.

Note the translation in English referring to the Barbaric Invaders (innaders - sic) and I guess the comments with these photos give an idea of the history of the invasion and onslaught that is perhaps still in the psyche of the Kuwaiti people today.

There is a notable loyalty or esteem given to the rulers of Kuwait (photos of them - always with happy and confident smiles on their faces!) are displayed prominently all over the city and in discussion with various people met, of both Kuwaiti national and migrant status, and there is a sense of appreciation of the quality of lifestyle that the Kuwaiti people maintain due to the way that the country is run with such a social care or community system providing and maintaining a good standard of living for nationals (provision of affordable and generous housing, cheap fuel and free health care etc and NO tax!).

Many mosques!

by angiebabe

Theres quite a range of mosques noted around Kuwait of various shapes and sizes. I would like to have down to see the pyramid shaped one I read about at Salmiya but didnt have the time.

When I made the comment to my taxi driver the early morning we were going thru the centre to see the externals of the Grande Mosque that there were a lot of mosques in Kuwait he answered that it was a muslim country so there must be a lot of mosques in Kuwait! No surprise in that!

Anyway I had walked past the Grande mosque the evening before but what I thought would surely have either of the main entrances werent and therefore it had looked closed to me whereas it mightve still be open as this mosque does allow non-muslims to enter for visits which is what I would like to have done.

2 nearby mosques at a Call to Prayer time I heard, also noted later when passing other mosques, have the most lovely sound of singing the call to prayer! which Im sure Ive not heard before other than talking the Call to Prayer as in say Morocco, and the two seemed to be trying to out sing the other! but it was a lovely sound.

Drive up to the Iraqi Border

by kuwait_david

On a Friday the normally busy three lane highway between Kuwait City and the Iraqi border is deserted. Jump in a hired or borrowed car and head out for a drive North from Kuwait City. Beware off the speed cameras all the way out to Mutlaa Ridge. Once you go through the police check point it is a straight, empty and fast run all the way to the border.

Nice ambiance near the dock

by Aaron7 about Little Jungle Cafe

Very cool little restaurant. The food was pretty good. I got a local dish which ended up tasting a lot better than the American food that my friends ordered. But the main draw at this restaurant is the absolutely amazing wood carvings inside of all sorts of animals from horses, to parrots to snakes. Well actually I can't remember what it was called now...

Ruby Tuesday's - A great stopoff

by kuwait_david about Ruby Tuesdays

If you are visiting, stop by the water towers take some pictures, but avoid the dreadful restuarant in the tower itself and go to Ruby Tuesday instead. They are constantly running promotions, drinks are unlimited refills and the steaks are great. The atmosphere is very american diner, service is quick and it is pretty cheap. The Steaks are fantastic, the chili cheese fries and the buffalo wings are not to be missed.
