Where a fractured recent history meets a quirky and friendly people
Marhaba from a country that, while it hasn’t fully embraced all the glamour of tourism, is full of curious little gems. Strangest of all is Mirror House: a normal house in Kuwait City, covered in mirror mosaic tiles. And not just outside, all the way through the house these intricate reflective artworks catch the desert sun. Kuwait’s unique atmosphere even spreads to its cuisine, for a truly unique night out try Al Boom, a seafood restaurant opened in a huge Indian boat. However, for all its oddities, Kuwait’s history and tradition have a major presence. The spectacular Grand Mosque, with its stained glass and palm tree lined court reminds anyone who lays eyes upon it of the nations dedication to Islam, and museums such as the Al Qurain Martyr’s Museum stand as a reminder of Lebanon’s recent bloody past. So no matter your budget, whether you like checking out designer brands in the Middle East’s second largest mall, or haggling for dried fruit in Souk Mubarakiya, VISIT KUWAIT!
