When is the best time to fly to Kuwait City?
The spring season from February to April is pleasant and cool, making it the ideal weather for travel. During this time the desert is draped with petunias. However visitors need to make sure to stay safe from the sand storms.
The hot and humid weather of the summer months from May to September, when the temperatures can reach around 49 degrees, generally keep the tourists away. However, if you think you can stand the hot conditions then this is the best time of year to find cheap flights to Kuwait City. The winter months from November to March are cool in the evenings with limited rain and pleasant weather during the day.
No matter when you book flights to Kuwait City you won’t be short of entertainment due to its calendar bursting with festivals, celebrations and events. One of Kuwait’s landmark events is their month long Hala Festvial in February which features displays of parades, shopping carnivals and cultural activities. The festival attracts over 80,000 visitors so flights to Kuwait city may be more booked up than usual.
The largest city and capital of Kuwait, on the Persian Gulf, Kuwait City is an important economic, cultural and political centre of the country. The city offers an interesting mix of high-rise buildings, modern shopping malls, hotels, traditional street markets, Islamic architecture and old buildings. The dominant landmarks of the city include the Liberation Tower, the Kuwait Towers and the Grand Mosque. The iconic Kuwait Towers offer a great view of the Kuwait City while a visit to the Grand Mosque is a worthwhile tour.
While in Kuwait indulge yourself in an unforgettable meal in the Kuwait Towers. Visit any of the numerous cafés in the city and try the unique experience to smoke Shisha (Hubbly Bubbly/ Hookah). A tour to the Aqua Park, within the vicinity of the Kuwait Towers, may be ideal to escape the hot climate of the Middle East. A great way to spend the evenings would be to walk down the wide boulevards or the well-tended sidewalks along the coast. Fitness and health conscious individuals can visit some of the top fitness centres in the city such as Ayurmana, Spa time and Elysium.
Options for shopping include the high-end malls of Marina Mall, The Avenues and Souk Sharq in addition to traditional markets such as the Mahameed markets and Souk Al Mubarakiya in downtown that are good for Oriental items and less expensive goods. A stay in Kuwait City would be incomplete without savouring the interesting Lebanese, Iranian and Bedouin foods served at the restaurants.
