Destination Overview

Holidays to Kuwait don’t spring to mind when thinking of a holiday to the Arabian Gulf. Kuwait is best remembered in the West as the country invaded by Iraq and the reason for the first Gulf War.

This city state sits in the cradle of one of the most ancient and most-contested corners of the world and for centuries has been like a magnet attracting Bedouin people from the interior, in search of a sea breeze and escape from recurring drought.

Kuwait holidays consitute a puzzling but intriguing mix of Western liberalism and strict Islam. Holidays in Kuwait City, the capital, take you to a bustling metropolis full of the high-rise buildings and luxury hotels. Yet the country is also host to elaborate and opulent mosques and palaces, and its religion is an integral part of its affairs.

A Kuwait holiday provides an oasis in a land of desert plains, but of the cultural and culinary kind. Excellent museums, a corniche of combed beaches and lively restaurants, malls and souqs mark the Kuwait City experience. Outside the capital there are few attractions other than coastal resorts. Oil excavation dominates the flat desert plains and there are few distinctive geographical features. That said, there is always something to see in a desert, with a bit of patience and an eye for detail; when it comes to the ritual camping expedition, Kuwaitis have plenty of both.

Kuwait

November to April is the best time to visit Kuwait when day temperatures come down to 18º C and nights are colder. If you are visiting in summer, it is important to stay away from direct sunlight as much as possible. Sunstroke, severe sunburn and dehydration are potential hazards.

Drink a lot of fluids to make up for the vital body salts you will lose through perspiration. Initially, you will feel fatigued and even drowsy on occasions until your body adjusts to Kuwait’s summer. A prickling sensation on the skin and abnormal fatigue usually means dehydration and must be treated immediately.

Kuwait has a typical desert climate and summer (April, May, June, August and September) is very hot. Between July and October it can be very humid and unpleasant with the onset of the southeasterly winds. Occasional rain falls between November and April. Rainfall is light and about six inches on an average. It is quite pleasant in winter when day temperatures go down to 18º C and nights are cold. Kuwait has dust storms (called tauz) usually in spring and late summer. During the tauz season it is a good idea to keep your room and car doors closed. If you are visiting Kuwait in summer, stay away from direct sunlight as much as possible. Sunstrokes and severe burns may occur if you ignore this precaution. Onset of dehydration is characterized by abnormal fatigue, drowsiness and a prickly sensation on the skin. Take a lot of fluids to replace the body salts you will lose through excessive perspiration. Almost everyone will face fatigue and drowsiness till the body adjusts to the heat of Kuwait in summer.
