The country is home to one of the largest shopping centres in the Middle East – The Avenues – as well as numerous other malls offering a myriad of designer boutiques and high street names.

Those who are after a more traditional shopping experience, meanwhile, should head to one of the authentic Arabian souqs – where you can haggle with traders in the heady, spice-infused air.

Flying to Kuwait: FAQs

How do I get from Kuwait International Airport (KWI) to the city centre?

Kuwait International Airport (KWI) is located on the outskirts of the capital city. The city centre can be reached in about 30 minutes, depending on traffic. You can arrange a smooth transfer with Etihad in advance. Alternatively, you can take a taxi. You should agree a price with the driver before setting off, as meters are generally not used.

How many days should I spend in Kuwait?

As a relatively small country, it’s possible to see some of Kuwait’s main highlights in a few days. But to really take in everything it has to offer, and explore the coast and desert attractions beyond Kuwait City, you might want to consider a stay of a week to ensure you don’t miss anything.

What is Kuwait known for?

Kuwait is perhaps the least commercialised and most modest of the Arabian countries, with romantic desert plains peppered with unspoiled towns and villages.
