Kuwait is your prototypical oil-rich state, and provides ex-pats with a gentle transition into the Muslim world. In your free time you can enjoy wandering around mosques, souks and other sandy traces of bygone Bedouin days. Behind the glitzy opulence lies a deep sense of traditional values and warm Arabian hospitality. Kuwait City and the surrounding communities are developing into buzzing metropolises with gleaming high rises, numerous luxury hotels, brand new shopping malls, lots of cafes and restaurants, cinemas and lush parks set along wide avenues. Kuwait is now regarded as a relatively safe destination with plenty to interest the traveler.
