  • Taxi in Kuwait ?

    Taxis in Kuwait…I am in Kuwait since a while. I take taxis, different ones and I realized I lost a lot of money using taxis.In Kuwait, like in nearby countries: Dubai, Bahrain… , taxis have taxi meters but contrary to the nearby countries, taxi drivers in Kuwait don’t charge according to the taxi meters.When I first came in Kuwait, I don’t remember...

  • Kuwait Airways

    Kuwait Airways is the national airline of Kuwait. From its hub in Kuwait City, the airline operates its small fleet of 18 aircraft to 39 destinations. The airline was founded in 1954 as a private airline, but it quickly became unprofitable, and the government took on 50 percent ownership of the company in 1956. The government later took full...

  • Kuwait International Airport

    Kuwait International Airport is a very busy, multi-cultural, modern airport. Just finding your way through the short-term parking lot is an adventure of avoiding men and women in their long gowns and a listening to a cacophony of honking cars...the poorly-designed pedestrian exit from the terminal dumps people right into the main road of the...

  • Use Taxis and Busses

    Travel by foot, taxi or bus is the order of the day. Kuwait has one of the highest mortality rates in the world resulting from motor vehicle accidents. To better avoid contributing to this statistic, one is much safer to refrain from renting and driving a vehicle while visiting/living in Kuwait.

  • Pimp My Ride!

    Even more than California, Kuwait is a car culture. Here, you are what you drive. I drive a Chevy Tahoe so I'm not sure what that tells a Kuwaiti about me but you can rest assured that I laugh my a$$ off when I see crap like this one.It is bad enough that some knucklehead has paid twice what this is worth considering that it is not a real MMMWV and...

  • Rent a car

    I know... you will read most folks pages and even in Lonely Planet (GOD I hate quoting L.P. after they SOOO mislead me! Snicker...) that the driving here is pretty bad. It is. We had two close calls. But don't forget - these are a Allah Fearing people. They pray. It's contagious. I pray right back at 'cha. No accidents for us. Fact is, there isn't...

  • To & From Via Air: Two Airlines of Note!

    If you are coming from the US, consider United Airlines. The only airline that offers non-stop service between Washington Dulles (suburban Virginia) and Kuwait City Int'l. Three class service on a B-777. Good flight, good crew. Oh - it's a night flight as of now anyway. You depart at about 10PM and get in next day 5:00PM. Flight is only 2 times a...

  • DRIVING TIPS IN KUWAIT

    When you come here for a short visit, an international license or any GCC countries license will be valid in Kuwait. Getting a permanent driving license in Kuwait is quiet tricky for everybody, especially to the expats. Many great oil companies or some ministries will be helping the employees to get it instantly whilst others may need ridiculous...

  • Riding On A Bus In Kuwait? Why Not?

    Bus services in Kuwait are much better compare to those in other Arab countries. For mean time the bus services are provided by KPTC, City Bus, and KGL. You have to know what bus number you are going to ride though you will see the bus destinations on the front side. Ask the driver soon after you step on the bus (or when the bus door open) if the...

  • Driving in Kuwait

    Like other places I have been, driving in Kuwait is different from driving in the US. Though the speed limit is around 120 kph, you will find cars going as slow as 60 kph and others speeding by at 180 kkph. Cars drive with no headlights at dawn and dusk, trucks have unsecured, bulky cargo. Sand blows across the roads, and camels run free. You will...

  • Kuwait International Airport...

    Kuwait International Airport is 16km (10mi) south of Kuwait City. Kuwait is not a particularly cheap place to fly to or from. The airlines and travel agents tightly control prices, and few discounted fares are available. There's an airport departure tax of about US$7. From the airport, taxis charge a flat fee of about US$15 to the city; buses make...

  • Getting Around:Driving...

    Getting Around:Driving (always) and navigating (at first) can be quite dispiriting and the kamikaze nature of Kuwaiti driving standards should never be underestimated. The good, wide roads look deceptively easy to the novice until he has his first near miss (within five minutes of taking the wheel) and his first crunch (probably within his first...
