Kuwait travel guide

Shopping Malls · Architectural Buildings · Shopping
Small in terms of land area but hugely rich in oil reserves, Kuwait sits in the middle of a region disputed by many would-be conquerors, each of whom has left an indelible mark over the ages. Expatriates make up nearly two thirds of Kuwait's population, drawn here by the thriving economy based almost entirely on petroleum exports. For casual travelers, a holiday in Kuwait means a chance to explore outstanding museums, sun-kissed beaches, and a lively restaurant scene serving authentic Arab cuisine. Less popular than some of the other oil-rich Gulf countries, Kuwait remains relatively unspoiled by mass tourism, though it boasts more than a fair share of extravagant shopping malls, picturesque marinas, and modern waterfront resorts.

Sitting on a peninsula that juts out into the Persian Gulf, little Qatar covers a small amount of territory but contains big reserves of natural gas and oil, boosting the per capita income to levels greater than in many highly industrialized Western countries. Ideal for travelers interested in taking a trip back in time, a vacation in Qatar also allows explorers to discover modern cities boasting outstanding museums, a lively arts scene, and an eclectic culinary heritage. In a country that embraces the future without forgetting its past, it's still possible to spend time learning about the centuries-old art of falconry or ride off into the sunset on the back of a docile camel.

It may very well be fair to call India "incredible," given its mind-boggling diversity of landscapes, climates, cultures, and languages. The world's largest democracy, and second only to China in terms of population, India contains majestic peaks dusted with glistening snow, sun-drenched beaches, ancient hand-carved temples, and sprawling cities jam-packed with people, vehicles, and animals. Many tour India during the country's devotional festivals, which range from immense parades that convert cities into giant performance stages, to simple farming fairs dedicated to relatively obscure local deities. Whenever you choose to vacation in India, make sure you see some of the country's World Heritage Sites, which include the legendary Taj Mahal and Chilika Lake, the planet's second-largest lagoon.
