Try any pharmacy. If they don't stock it, they will be able to direct you to one that does. If you do not intend to drink the distilled water you can try auto parts stores. They use distilled water in the car radiators and on older batteries....

Thanks katcoota.

I've went to several Malls and Groceries and its very frustrating to know that they don't have it.

We'll this time I'll try going to the Pharmacy.

By the way, do anybody here using a portable/house distiller? How much? And how is it?

Thanks in advance. :)


Note: I prefer distilled water since I have a previous experience with kidney stones.

Why don't you check the yellow pages for medical / surgical supplies companies; distilled water is available in a variety from a few mL vials to clean the eye up to 2L bottles to hang on IV poles for (tissue) irrigation.

If you find a company that specializes in hospital Lab equipment you might be able to buy a distillation unit, or an RO (reverse osmosis) unit, some of these are small and built for use in a small lab.

Travel Tips for Kuwait

Meet the people of Kuwait and try their food!

by angiebabe

Maboosh! - luckily on Kuwaiti Airlines there was an Arabic food option included and I got to try lovely Maboosh - spicey, but not uncomfortably hot with lamb and rice.

When I got to Kuwait I got the chance to meet the families, of the man I was escorting to get back to his home in Kuwait, who had Maboosh on the menu as well! and delicious - an excellent way to enjoy a country is to meet and relate with people of the country and what better way than in their homes! See the lovely big houses the Kuwaiti people generally live in, the clothing they wear, how they relate to one another and what they talk and think about, meet their extended families and enjoy their warm welcome (well for me luckily they were a warm welcoming family pleased or excited to see their father brought back from London home again).

They told me they do have a bit of rice in their diet/usual dishes but not predominantly nor do they have cous cous - 'its Moroccan' they said but available in the markets. Their tea is black tea or green tea (not with mint) and their coffee 'Arabic coffee' has a taste like verbena is in it.

Sawaber Shia Hussainiya

by mikey_e

Kuwait is an incredibly diverse nation, similar to the other Gulf countries. While the majority of the country's citizens are in fact Sunni Muslim, there is also a considerable Shia minority that is granted freedom of religion under the Constitution. As such, it's not uncommon to see Shia places of worship and Hussainiyaat, which are congregation halls used primarily during Muharram and the festival of Ashura, which marks the murder of Imam Hussein. This particular Hussainiya is located in Sawaber, a heavily immigrant area of the capital with many people from Pakistan and India. The area around the mosque and the Hussainiya gets pretty busy on Fridays, even outside of the month of Muharram. I was particularly drawn to this building because of the intricate carving on the fa├žade and the beautiful calligraphy. Photography is not necessary welcome around these buildings, as the Sunni/Shia divide is quite contentious in Kuwait, as in the rest of the Muslim world. Nevertheless, admiring the beauty of Shia architecture is certainly not forbidden, and will help visitors understand better the complexity of this small country.

Suilhibikat - Where the rich and famous stay

by kuwait_david

Wedged between second ring road and 3rd ring road is the well to do area of Suilhibikat. This is where all the wealthy Kuwaiti families live. Not only does the area have amazing houses where everyone seems to be trying to outdo each other but it also has beautiful mosques and a unique thing about Kuwait, many houses have ornate water fountains outside for people to have a drink, part of the charitable tradition of Kuwaiti families. Jump in a car and spend a couple of hours exploring and you will find plenty of opportunities for photos of great architecture and some of the unique images of well to do Kuwait City.

Decent Italian Food (tasted by an Italian)

by Silverado72 about Nino

Here we are, as all the Italians I went there to remember the taste of my home country. It worked.... The atmosphere is modern italian, a lot of pasta boxes around. I had there a pizza and was at least decent (not easy). You can have there good spaghetti.

Towers

by traveloturc

Unfortunately there is no much "things to do" in Kuwait. The Kuwait towers were built in 1979 by a team of Scandinavian architects. The tallest tower is 180 meters, and is used as a water deposit. There is also a restaurant and an observation deck .The second tower is only used as a water tower, and reaches 140 meters. The third tower without spheres is there for lighting purposes.
