From the observation deck on the Chinese steel-clad Kuwait Towers, Kuwait City’s pristine skyline unfurls before your eyes against the backdrop of the glistening ocean waters of the Persian Gulf. This is a capital city which effortlessly blends the old with the new. For every state-of-the-art shopping mall, you’ll find a quaint souk or museum, which in turn makes for a fascinating holiday.
Head along to the Scientific Centre, where the Middle East’s largest aquarium awaits you. Regarded as one of the city’s premier attractions, this mesmerising site displays everything from sharks and crocodiles to gorgeous reef fish and giant crabs.
Elsewhere, cultural highlights include the 45,000 square meter Grand Mosque, whilst the city’s Souq is best described as a larger than life treasure trove of heavenly aromas, glistening jewellery and an array of garments. For a more contemporary shopping experience, stop by The Avenues – one of the world’s largest malls, with over 800 stores to its name.
