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.
