Kuwait, we have more than camels here!
By: crazyinkuwaitWelcome to Kuwait,a country that has more than just camels, yes there are many places to visit and events happen all of the time. As an expat living in Kuwait for 10 years I have yet to complete my bucket list of places to visit while I’m here. As a blogger I can bring my adventures to you first hand, I make the journey easier by providing detailed information and then you can decide which places to visit that interest you the most. The touristic market in Kuwait is yet to be up and running so it’s up to bloggers and media to give the world an idea of what this country has to offer. If you’re into the restaurant scene, museum lover or a cultural explorer here are some of the top ten places that will interest you:

I absolutely LOVE this blog! I've travelled worldwide, but have yet to include Kuwait in my travels. This blog offers so much exciting information about Kuwait - where to go and what to do once there - I've decided to finally visit Kuwait next year! Without the excellent (and entertaining) info the blog administrator posts on this site, I would have never thought to visit Kuwait. I will use the info posted here to plan my vacation while in Kuwait! Excellent blog, very well done!

Even though Kuwait is my country this blog taught me a lot and encouraged me to take some time off and visit museums and other places here. I finally took a trip to Falika island recently and loved it.

I found this blog while searching for information for my move to Kuwait to be a teacher and I can't begin to tell you how much it helped calm my nerves! I was so worried about moving to a new country but not anymore. Thanks so much.
