  • And a small museum. When I arrived, the kuaitiana typically dressed employee gave me a brochure and started the visit. The Museum is free and within 20 minutes you can visit him. And good to understand the role of the sea and fisheries in that country. Enjoy and visit the Museum of modern art which is near.

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.
