Best places to visit in Kuwait

  • Kuwait City: Mosques, markets, museums and more! The capital city of Kuwait is a modern city located directly on the Persian Gulf. Here, you can spend a day at the beach, take in the view from one of the city’s skyscrapers, or tour Kuwait’s Grand Mosque, featuring the tallest minaret in the country. Stop by the Souk Al-Mubarakiya and try your hand at haggling in this traditional bazaar.  
  • Hawalli: Hawalli is a governorate of Kuwait City and a hub of many cultures. Use your car rental in Kuwait to find lots of shopping and dining opportunities. Be sure to try some machboos, Kuwait’s national dish, while you’re in town! Some favorite attractions include the Bayan Botanical Garden, the Mirror House that is covered with mosaics, and the Bait Al Othman Museum. 
  • Failaka Island: A ferry ride away from Kuwait City, Failaka Island was deserted during the Gulf War in the 1990s, and most of the buildings remain abandoned. The island is especially interesting to budding archeologists; it has been inhabited since the Bronze Age, and there are several excavation sites located there. Bring a picnic lunch as there are very few shops on the island. 

Summer in Kuwait

Summer temperatures run high in Kuwait, especially in July and August, when the mercury regularly climbs above the 100°F mark. This is a great time to hang out at the beach. Kuwait City’s Aqua Park waterpark is a fun place for families. Malls are also popular places to escape the heat. The Avenues Mall in the Rai area of Kuwait City is Kuwait’s largest mall, where you’ll find the typical shops and restaurants as well an escape room, indoor amusements, kids’ activities and even an ice-skating rink.
