A combination of modern money and ancient history blend to create the unique architecture and culture of Kuwait City. Despite the money and infrastructure Kuwait still struggles to maintain much agriculture in the blistering heat of the dry desert landscape.

Kuwait City is a nice place to visit and stay. It has a lot of good restaurants and places that is nice to see. One of the most special place to visit is Kuwait tower. The Kuwait tower view is very special and you can see all Kuwait city and near places to it from there. The restaurant of the tower is very special and the dishes are very wonderful.
The Gulf is known for glitz and glamor and, as other countries in the region begin to compete for tourism, they have begun to lose their local flavor through a mix of immigration and globalized "mallification." Kuwait breaks the mold. This isn't a place that attracts a lot of tourists or courts them. It also has fewer iconic tourists sights. The result is a Gulf country that has retained its culture. A bit gritty and harder to navigate, this is the place to visit if you want to discover and engage Gulf Arab culture. The people were incredible friendly during my visit. We spent a fortune on taxis (much better to negotiate a half or full-day rate) but the effort and cost were well rewarded. The highlight of our visit was the old souk. The main sights of Kuwait City can easily be seen in a day or two but I could spend endless time eating, people watching, and speaking to locals and the old souk is the place to do it.
