I visited Kuwait even though my friends said that there was nothing to see. I went there and I was taken aback by the fact that Kuwait City was one of the most modern cities that I’ve ever been to. The modern architect dominate the skyline. Other than the skyscrapers, I really enjoyed visiting the mirror house, it was a unique place for me. Grand Mosque of Kuwait, Kuwait Invasion Museum, Kuwait National Museum and the Sadu House were some of the most highlighted attractions I visited during my visit to this so called “dry” place!

My husband decided to visit Kuwait City in the winter months and I was impressed with what he chose. The city was warm even in the cold months and the shopping was top-notch. The hotels were all super luxurious. It is a decent place to stay for a maximum of 2 days.

Didn’t know that I will love Kuwait City this much. Such a peaceful place to be in and so many luxurious hotels. The unique skyscrapers such as Kuwait towers were worth praising. However, there were not many sites to explore.
