Flights to Kuwait


Oil-rich Kuwait sits on the tip of the Arabian Gulf. The country experienced a golden era between 1946 and 1982; today, flights to Kuwait are popular among travelers seeking a certain kind of Middle Eastern adventure mixed with some five-star experiences. Kuwait’s size makes it manageable for a short vacation, with a culture that revolves around theater, soap operas, and the popular Al Arabi magazine, which holds sway in much of the Arab world. Kuwait, like many of its regional neighbors, is hot and dry in climate, with powerful Islamic philosophies governing many aspects of life.

If you're traveling to Kuwait, you’ll probably spend most of your time in Kuwait City. The country's capital and largest city, it sits on the shores of the deepwater harbor Kuwait Bay, making it the natural center of the country's trade. In fact, more than 90% of the population lives on the coast of the bay.

Kuwait City is home to most of the country's tourist attractions, including the famous Kuwait Tower rising high into the skyline, the Tareq Rajab Museum, and the Mirror House, known for the massive mirror mosaic on its walls. If you're looking to catch a little sunshine, check out Al Kout Beach; the Kuwaiti Maritime Museum has an amazing collection of ancient and modern vessels. And Al-Boom, a popular restaurant in the hull of a boat, makes the perfect end to a nautical-themed afternoon.

It’s easy to find a base for all that sightseeing, as one of Kuwait's biggest draws is its fleet of luxury hotels.
