If you are not a Muslim, then plan your travel to Kuwait outside of the Holy Month of Ramadan. During the month of Ramadan, everything pretty much is closed from dawn until dusk. If you are in Kuwait during Ramadan, refrain from eating, drinking and smoking in public out of respect for the religion. Otherwise, you might find yourself being detained for doing this. Loosen up and you'll enjoy the country's culture and people. I had many Kuwaiti friends and basically folks, we're all the same. We enjoy travel, family, parties and adventure. You'll do well by treating everyone...everywhere you go as a brother or sister, which goes a long way in establishing lasting friendships and making the world a friendlier place, one person at a time.
