Kuwait Towers, Kuwait City

3.8
The city's signature landmark and the nation's most recognizable symbols, Kuwait Towers offer 360-degree views of the city and the Gulf. The three towers--with characteristic blue-green spheres covered with more than 41,000 enameled discs--were constructed during the 1970s. Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed chose the design, which resembles a tiled dome of a mosque. The highest tower rises 187 m (614 ft) above the ground, featuring observation decks on two levels, plus a revolving restaurant and a cafe. In March 2016, the towers opened to the public after a major four-year refurbishment process.

  • It is a magnificent feeling to be under these historic landmarks of our beloved country Kuwait. May God bless this country and protect it. Lovely people very well educated, and easy going. On my recent visit I noticed a big development is taking a place in Kuwait and I loved the roads & highways networks, since it was my first time to drive in Kuwait i guess, i loved driving in Kuwait though, people are very respectful to the speed limits and traffic law.
  • Was always a dream to get in those towers.. I think the renovation took almost 10 years. but its really nice and it has a wonderful restaurant at the top. Recommended
  • It is a place where visit one only. The ticket price is expensive compared to what you got. You got a nice view of the gulf and Kuwait city. مكان تزوره مره واحدة. سعر التذكرة غالي مقابل القيمة التي تحصل عليها. يمكنك رؤية الخليج مع مدينة الكويت.

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.
