    One of the most beautiful experiences that can examine our babies. I enjoy my son to spend 4 hours in a mall where he learned a lot about the character and functions that he was obsessed by a lot. He didn't want to go out and back to the hotel. Zgod required facilities for any child less than 8 years. Child ticket 12 dinars. Utilities 8 dinars. The place is worth the visit, and the amount paid

    Very good and a modern place for kids to come and enjoy, but surely not for middle or low income families. :(  more »

    KidZania Kuwait have inexcusably managed to impose a crass framework of injustice and sexist discrimination amongst children. In so doing, you have succeeded in supporting and nurturing inequality in young children, and for this I hold them entirely accountable. Suffice to say, they will never receive another penny from my family (not that they care); however, I will provide the following information so that others may see what a pathetic organisation they have become in Kuwait. I have raised my daughter to understand that she has exactly the same rights as anyone else and, as is important in this case, that her gender has zero bearing in the justification of equality. One of the reasons we chose to come to Kuwait is because the country and its leadership clearly promote equality amongst its people and the hosted expatriate communities. The latest #SpiritOfKuwait campaign launched in the first week of May 2017 highlighted the importance of Article 29; “Kuwait, Article 29: Religion, Equality and Freedom: 1) All people are equal in human dignity and in public rights and duties before the law, without distinction to race, origin, language, or religion. 2) Personal liberty is guaranteed.” (Kuwait Times, 2017) My daughter attended KidZania Kuwait with a group of her school friends. They were so excited and the opportunity to create positive childhood memories was one which they all looked forward to. Having arrived at the facility in the Avenues Mall, KidZania Kuwait decided it was appropriate to tell a group of 10 year old girls that they could not scale the climbing wall, because their shorts were too short… For starters, the girls were wearing exactly the same conventional sports shorts the boys were wearing. In fact, they were all dressed uniformly. Interestingly enough, KidZania Kuwait didn’t hesitate to strap one of the boys into his harness; a point which will become apparent shortly. My daughter questioned the rule to disallow girls onto the climbing wall, and the response from the attending member of staff was that they would have to wear leggings due to the fact that failing to do so would expose their underwear to passers-by (aka other children, because as far as I am aware adults have no business looking at other children's 'personal belongings'). The boy in the harness came over and immediately demonstrated that the harness he was wearing in preparation for the climbing wall could in fact just as easily expose his underwear; therefore, he did not understand why there was one rule for girls and one rule for boys. KidZania Kuwait states that; “...The various playful activities of KidZania are specifically designed to aid physical and intellectual growth, and contribute to the development of skills and attitudes” (Kidzania Kuwait, 2017). Their Instagram account then goes further to state that; “KidZania is an award-winning concept that is globally recognized for its unique blend of entertainment and education - edutainment.” (Kidzania, 2017) The children actually walked away as a collective, when one of the girls who was wearing leggings went back to ask if she could climb the wall, to which your member of staff said; "Yes." The same girl then walked away, changed her hair style and raised the leggings to just above her knee. Upon her 2nd attempt, your member of staff didn’t recognise her and told her that she could not climb as her leggings were too short (just above the knee). Was the rule in order to prevent the girls’ underwear from showing (despite the boys facing the same risk), or was it because leggings (which don’t show underwear) were just above the knee, or was it because the same leggings (once well below the knee) were acceptable to use in the 1st place? In closing, I would recommend KidZania Kuwait stops falling into the trap of blurring the definition of modesty with inequality. There is common sense, and then there is pure nonsense…

Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.
