Kuwait is a tiny desert nation with an impressive history. Its vast oil holdings mean that its capital, Kuwait City, is a global city filled with world-class art, architecture, music, theater, luxury shopping, and nightlife. Choosing one of our Kuwait vacation packages is perhaps the best way to get to know this charming Middle Eastern country.
The three Kuwait Towers, located near several prominent Kuwait hotels, stand watch over Kuwait City from a peninsula that extends into the Persian Gulf. Their long, slender shapes are marked by geodesic domes that house restaurants, cafes, and lounges, and from their windows you can look out and see the bustling city's life unfolding beneath you. No vacations in Kuwait are complete without a visit to these iconic skyscrapers.
The Kuwait National Museum in Kuwait City is an exciting way to experience Kuwait's history and culture. The museum's planetarium gives visitors a guided tour of the night sky, and the archaeological museum housed within the museum proper collects artifacts from Kuwait's lengthy history. The Kuwait Heritage Museum focuses primarily on the culture and history of the country, and brings to light the stories of the inhabitants who lived here long before the discovery of oil.
When you're planning a trip to Kuwait, taking into account the nation's annual festivals is a great way to experience everything the country has to offer. The annual Hala festival in early spring is a colorful, festive time when Kuwaitis deck their city in brilliant colors in anticipation of the new season. And Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan's fasting and prayer, is a joyous holiday marked by the entire Muslim population of the country, with feasting and parties.
