Kuwait Off The Beaten Path

  • Kuwait Landscape

    As you can see, there may not be a lot off the beaten path, but you do have the opportunity to see a lot of camels and other people travelling. It is also a great place to take pictures of sunrises.

  • No alcohol in Kuwait? Yeah, Right!

    Being a Muslim country, alcohol is illegal in Kuwait.However, illegal and unavailable are NEVER the same thing!If you would like to try the local homebrew strike up a conversation with a taxi driver and tell him you want some "Sadeeqee". This is a god-awful concotion that tastes similar to death and makes you shake your head and shiver with every...


    See what this man is trying to do!! Crossing the highway by running in between cars! I have seen the worse accidents in my life throughout my visits to Kuwait. It's usual to see accidents especially on highways but in Kuwait there is 90% chance that there are casualities in these accidents. You would see the car in an unexpainlable state (either...

  • Find Something Open!

    I dare you. Seriously, this place is like a ghost town. And the women folks must know it, so to hide their embarrasment, they cover their faces. Just try to find some life here, it doesn't exist much. We were practically the only folks on the Water Tower Observation deck and one of very few visiting the Scientific Center. I'm not complaining. I...

  • Ezzain Arabians

    This arabian horse stud is a DREAM! You wont find a more beautiful place! Everything is made in the finest materials, and the whole place is designed by the owner...Even though it is located in Wafra, almost an hours drive fom Kuwait City this is without a doubt a place that is worth a visit! Having stables that is better than where most people...

  • Hotel window view:

    Waking up after a night's sleep, having arrived late at night by plane, I looked out of the hotel window in the morning - it was a graveyard. After a lot of rain, flooding, really during the day, many of the graves collapsed. One of the things you remember while travelling...

  • See the oilfields

    The only reason Kuwait exists - oil. Drive to one of the many fields. Surrounded by high fences and patrolled by security but quite impressive to see none the less.

  • Meet the natives

    Drive north, south or west of Kuwait city and you should run into one of these chaps. Friendly but have serious issues with bad breath.

  • Take a ride on the wild side...

    An 4x4 SUV with a full tank of gas, a good spare tire, a GPS, a cell phone (GSM), water (at least 4 liters), sunglasses, and some good common sense. All you need to enjoy a drive in the desert. Stay on the established roads. Why? Because you will either blow out your tire on a sharp rock (It is SOOO fun to change a tire in the sand) or run into a...

  • Beaches:For a country with...

    Beaches:For a country with so much coastline (290km) in relation to its size, Kuwait has relatively few public beaches and even fewer where Western women would feel comfortable, hence the glut of private beach clubs, the membership of which start at around KD180 per year at Messilah Beach Hotel, and at which water sports abound as well as other...
