This small state is surrounded by Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Iran, but maintains its own reputation as an oil-rich and strategically-located nation. Kuwait City has a few impressive modern sights, such as the Kuwait Towers. The tallest tower is 187m high and offers a two-level observation deck, and has a cafe and restaurant in the lower globe. The modern Grand Mosque has a capacity of over 5,500 people. The Tareq Rajab Museum is a fantastic private collection of Islamic art, housed in a villa’s basement. For a look at the country’s history of war and invasion, head to Al-Jahra where Kuwait defeated Saudi Arabia in 1920. Travellers should check for advisories and warnings before planning a trip to Kuwait.
