A few weeks ago, I visited Kuwait for the first time, making this little Gulf republic my fourth new country for 2018. Just like it´s oil-rich neighboring countries, the country boasts beautiful skyscrapers and modern infrastructure. Unfortunately, not opening much to tourists unlike Dubai and Abu Dhabi makes it not a very popular destination. In case you are visiting Kuwait in the future, here are some of the places I visited during my stay and which I would recommend to everyone.
