Overview

Kuwait is known mainly for being a tiny country on the north-east of the Arabian peninsula, with an estimated 10 percent of the world's oil reserves and therefore rolling in petro-dollars. The Kuwait Towers in Kuwait city, which look a little bit like onion bulbs on skewers, are the most famous landmarks of the state, with Liberation Tower arguably a lot more photogenic. You can relax on Green Island or head to Khiran Resort for water sports, check out the Dhow Harbour, and there is an annual pearl diving competition.
