Kuwait is a tiny oasis in an unforgiving desert. Nestled between Iraq to the north and Saudi Arabia to the south, Kuwait has seen its fair share of conflict, but remains a cultural and tourism mecca.
The capital, Kuwait City, is the home to almost all of the country’s resorts and attractions. The most interesting aspect of the capital city is its mix of honoring the old while embracing the new. Visitors can explore the bustling Souq, or bazaar, at the city center. In the same day, that same visitor can take in the Scientific Center. This massive sail-shaped building is home to the largest aquarium in the Middle East.
No visit to Kuwait would be complete without a stop at the most iconic attraction, the Kuwait Towers. The three towers were built in 1979 and glitter with ocean-colored glass.
If you want to experience a true desert oasis, look no further than Kuwait.
