Are you considering a trip overseas to a really fascinating country? If that is the case, then you should visit Kuwait. The place is home to the best natural landscapes and skyscrapers that will give you fresh air to breathe. Kuwait is well known for its oil reserves, which has made it one of the richest nations. Kuwait is a magnificent country that people seldom consider when they look for new places to fly to.

Kuwait Tower

Tareq Rajab Museum

Around March-May would be the ideal time to explore the museum. The museum is divided into Region A and Area B. This ethnographic collection has its origins in numerous places of the world, including Iran, Afghanistan, India, Tibet, Bhutan, Ethiopia, etc. The ethnographic collection is rare, extraordinary, and completely beautiful due to the intricacy of the weaves and embroideries in textiles, the designs of gold and silver jewelry, and the work of pottery, metal, and glassware.

Grand Mosque

November to May would be the most convenient time for you to visit the Grand Mosque. The Al-Masjid Al-Kabir Mosque is situated in the heart of the city. Kuwait's oldest mosque, the Great Mosque, is famed for its classical Islamic architecture. The mosque isn't as remarkable from the outside as it is from the inside. When you enter, you'll be mesmerized by a mixture of blue and gold, Andalusian-style patterned tiles, and ornamental calligraphy.

Al Sadu House

You can visit Al Sadu house any time of the year. The Sadu House is a special museum, a notable change from the usual collection of artifacts and antiques.

House of Mirrors

House of Mirrors can be visited any time you want. Located in Qadsia, this house is private property, and previous appointments must be made. The house is owned by the Italian-born Lidia al-Qattan, a sculptor, a painter, a jeweler, and her family. As the story goes, her daughter, Jalila, once smashed a mirror, and oblivious to the superstitious idea surrounding the broken mirrors, Lidia was inspired to do something creative with the shards of glass.

Drunk Driving

Drunk driving is never a great idea at all. In several Gulf and Middle East countries in general, the purchase of alcoholic drinks is restricted, but personal use is usually considered an option to be left to individuals. However, to all intents and purposes, in Kuwait, alcohol is illegal.

Speed Limit

Kuwait has been one of the world's highest road density countries. In order to make everyday traffic more efficient, there is no standardized speed limit in the world, even though all areas are predominantly urbanized. As a result, speed limits are also set in the streets and on the highways.
