Map of Kuwait
Kuwait City - the capital
Jahrah - 30 minutes - A town north of Kuwait City with great historic importance. Fires caused by faulty wiring well-known.
Ahmadi- 30 minutes - Many of Kuwait's oil refineries are located here.
Hawalli - 20 minutes - Important residential area
Farwaniyah - 20 minutes - Important port in Kuwait
Mubarak Al Kaber - 25 minutes
Salmiya- 15 minutes - Known for its beaches and host high-end real estate. Inner blocks are residential areas of lower cost.
Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh - 25 minutes - Very cheap housing. Residents are mostly Indian blue-collar and semi-blue collar workers. Poor sanitation and plumbing.
Riggae: A quiet and cleaner alternative to Jleeb.
Kuwait International Airport (KWI) is Kuwait's only airport and is served by several airlines, mostly flying within the Middle East.
The national airline, Kuwait Airways, serves Frankfurt, Geneva, Rome, Kuala Lumpur, London, New York and Paris as well as several other European, Asian, African and Middle Eastern destinations.
If you need a visa on arrival at the airport, do not head down to Arrivals, instead look for the "Visa Issuing" desks opposite the Dasman Lounge.
Airport taxis can be found outside arrivals, with the fare to most points in the city being KWD5. Most hotels can arrange a transfer for the same price if not free of charge, which is probably a safer and more comfortable option. When in operation, you can also use the "limousine" service which is located to the right of the outside exit for KWD6.
Kuwait has a good road system. All signs are in English and Arabic.
Public Transport: Kuwait's public transport is adequate with three companies (KPTC, City Bus and KGL) running dozens of routes in every major city. Waiting times for buses range from one minute for most frequent routes to fifteen minutes for less used routes. All buses are equipped with air-conditioners and usually one can find a seat without much trouble.
Taxi: These are recognisable by orange licence plates and may be hired by the day, in which case fares should be agreed beforehand. Although most taxis have meters these are rarely used and one needs to negotiate a fare beforehand.
Car hire: Self-drive is available. If you produce an International Driving Permit, the rental company will, at the customer's expense, be able to arrange the statutory temporary insurance, which is drawn on the driver's visa. If you arrive at Kuwait International Airport, you will find the car hiring companies located at your left after you exit from the baggage claiming area. You can find international companies such as Avis and Budget among others.
If involved in a car accident, do not attempt to move your car until police arrive and have made a report or you will be arrested.
Arabic is the official language. In schools, the classical version of Arabic is taught, but the Kuwaiti dialect in everyday conversation. English is widely used and spoken and is taught at all of the schools and universities in Kuwait. All traffic signs in Kuwait are bilingual (English and Arabic).
What to do
See Kuwait City for more activities in the city.
Sea Clubs & spas. Many of Kuwait's sea clubs offer a wide variety of facilities and activities such as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, beaches, tennis courts, gymnasiums, bowling and even karate.
Museums (Kuwait City). Kuwait has many museums, most notably Bait Al-Othman Museum, Maritime Museum, and Museum of Modern Art.
Riding. Horse riding clubs flourish in the winter. The Hunting and Equestrian Club is on the 6th ring road near Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah Armed Forces Hospital.
Golf. The golf course "Sahara Club" is located near the Hunting and Equestrian club beside 6th ring road. It features a five star restaurant and a spa.
Swimming and diving. Swimming is common on various public beaches along the Gulf Street. The beach resorts as Radisson SAS and Palms offer beaches to both genders. Many homes have swimming pools and those that do are generally indoors, below ground. Many of the big hotels and spas have reasonably sized pools, but again can be quite expensive for those who are not guests.
Boating. Sailing and scuba diving are available. Powerboating is a Kuwaiti passion. Contact any of the hotels located on the beach and they can arrange a trip for you. The best beach front hotels are the Hilton Resort, Movenpick Resort, Marina Hotel and the Radisson SAS. Hiring a boat should be done with caution and the boat should be inspected carefully for signs of neglect before agreeing on a rental.
Shopping in Malls. The largest mall in Kuwait is The Avenues on 5th ring road behind road 60. It is one of the largest malls in whole middle-east and features a lot of clothing and electronics stores as well as a Carrefour and an Ikea.
Shopping on Markets. Regardless of the growing amount of malls Kuwait still hosts a lot of small markets. See the buy section in the Kuwait City article.
