Kuwait is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Endowed with oil and gas-rich lands, the country has developed itself to become one of the most beautiful places in the world. Here are some of the top sites for tourists in Kuwait.
The Kuwait Towers
The Towers of Kuwait are one of the most magnificent buildings to visit in Kuwait. Erected by seaside, this beautiful 187m tall architectural structure portrays the political and economic strength of the country to anyone who dares gaze upon it. By mainly looking at the tower, you will see it was perfectly designed to wow tourists and attract them like light attracts insects. To get the full, exciting experience of the tower, take a trip into this white and blue edifice and enjoy a meal at one of the exquisite and exclusive restaurants located at the topmost part of the tower.
Kuwait Classic, Vintage Car Museum
Whether you are a car lover or not, the Kuwait vintage car museum is a must-visit for anyone visiting the country for tourism. Located at the Kuwait industrial complex, this museum is home to some of the most famous automobiles in the world. The museum is made up of two buildings that house the cars and an outer space, which serves as a traffic jungle car park for kids interested in testing or showcasing their driving skills, which they must have learned playing video games. Among all the famous cars displayed at the museum, some of the notable mentions include the three James Bond customized cars, limousines of the Kuwait royal family, and Bugattis from the late 90s.
Green Island is an artificial island created by the Kuwait government as a relaxation spot for tourists visiting the country. The island, created in 1988, was one of the first artificial islands in the GCC Region. Home to beautiful tall towers, the island is covered with beautiful trees and green pastures. A children’s tower is among the towers on the island. It is a place where kids can safely climb and view the entire island. When visiting the island, it would be ideal to go in your swimming suit as there is a 2.5-3m deep swimming pool for all tourists to relax and enjoy. You can also enjoy some of the best online casinos in Kuwait while relaxing on this evergreen man-made island.
The Kuwait Zoo is a fascinating place to visit with your kids. According to the official records, the animal park is home to over 1000 species of different birds and reptiles. Destroyed in 1990 during the Iraq war, the zoo was reconstructed and reopened in 1993 with more animals than it previously had. Currently, animals like lions, monkeys, tortoises, zebras, giraffes, and snakes are found in the park.
As part of efforts to make the wildlife park a more entertaining place, officials now permit tourists to carry food into the zoo to eat in the panic parks located within the zoo. One interesting fact about the park is that all animal cages are equipped with air conditioners to regulate the animals’ body temperature.
Designed by a female Italian-Kuwaiti artist Lidia Al Qattan, the Kuwait mirror house is the only house in the world wholly built with mirrors. Opened to tourists for only 3 hours a day, this private museum has an interior that depicts the beauty of the oceans and the earth. When visiting this museum, ensure you go with your camera to enrich yourself with beautiful pictures that will forever live to remember.
Despite being one of the wealthiest countries in the world, Kuwait has a very strict immigration policy that makes it difficult for individuals to visit. However, if you ever get a chance to visit this beautiful nation, make the most of it by visiting the sites listed above.
