Kuwait Towers, Kuwait City

(3.1/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Symbol of the city. To visit if passing through Kuwait City. Entry costs 3 k (= 9 €!). With a lift, in a few seconds you get to 120m on higher sphere. The ball slowly turns 360°. The view is nice, but nothing as impressive ... Glasses due to the saltiness are dirty and the photos too because of the visibility they don't get out much. At dusk is nice see the various skyscrapers that are illuminated with various light effects.

  • This has been the landmark of Kuwait since long and will continue to be. The taller tower has an upper sphere which houses a cafe and a viewing gallery that completes one revolution every 30 mintues. ...  more »
