A Hot Country - But Hotter Models
Kuwait: Unique culture, wealth – thanks to oil and gas.
Kuwait is an emirate located on the Arabian Peninsula. The prosperity of the country is reflected in the modern skyline of the capital Kuwait City. But Kuwait also consists of uniquely decorated and magnificent mosques and palaces.Kuwait consists of 92% desert and is characterized by an extremely dry, hot climate. Between May and October there is almost no precipitation worth mentioning. During this time sandstorms caused by the desert wind Shamal can occur.
Much More Than ``Only Gas And Oil``
Discover Kuwait On Escort City Tour : A Very Rich Country!
Only a small number of tourists in the classical sense come to Kuwait. The majority of foreign guests are travellers who travel for business reasons. Of these, more than a third are Saudis, followed by visitors from India and Egypt, Bahrain, Pakistan and other mostly Muslim countries. They travel to an obviously wealthy country that, despite its oil wealth, does not rely as unconditionally on glamour as its neighbours in the Gulf in their strongholds of commerce and extravagant tourism.
But Kuwait doesn’t have to hide. The skyline of his metropolis can easily keep up with the sky-high glass palaces in the Emirates or in Qatar’s Doha. Its transport and supply systems function smoothly and there is truly no shortage of all the modern achievements that make life in this extreme desert region possible at all. Kuwaitis are particularly committed to dealing with the past, the often cited “pre-oil era”. They try to preserve and preserve wherever possible. And perhaps that is why the feeling is so strong that things are going authentically Arab here – at least more so than elsewhere on the Arabian Peninsula.
A tour of Kuwait City takes us to some well-preserved buildings of the recent past such as the Seif Palace with its famous clock tower opposite the Great Mosque. Built in 1896, it belongs to the Emir’s Dynasty and is used only for special tributes and events. The palace is one of the rare examples of traditional Islamic palace architecture and Islamic mosaic tiling. Sadu House was built in 1929 as Kuwait’s first private concrete building. It combines traditional Kuwaiti architectural design with Indian carvings on doors and windows, for which an Indian architect was invited to Kuwait. The adjacent Bait al-Badr is much older. It was built between 1838 and 1848 as a climate-adapted manorial clay house with five inner courtyards surrounded by colonnades and mighty wooden doors. In the southwest of Kuwait City lies the “House of Islamic Antiquities” Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah. It houses the collection of a member of the ruling house, which now comprises more than 20,000 objects. It was transferred to the state of Kuwait as a permanent loan. It is regarded as one of the most comprehensive collections of artefacts from the Muslim world between Spain and China from the 7th to 19th centuries, including manuscripts and calligraphic works, textile, ceramic, metal and woodwork, weapons, coins, jewellery, etc. The Old Souq is located in the city centre. Most of its traditional structures have been preserved, and only a few areas have had to move into new buildings. Here you can enjoy to the full what you associate with an oriental market such as noisy bargaining and exotic smells, colourfulness and abundance of goods. Before the contemporary buildings come into view, a side trip to the Hawalli Province adjacent to Kuwait City, where the Tareq Rajab Museum presents ethnographic treasures: Musical instruments include silver and gold jewellery from Oman and Saudi Arabia, headgear and traditional costumes, enamel and pearls from Bahrain, and Arab manuscripts can be admired in a special section, the Calligraphy Museum.
The landmarks of Kuwait City are the slender water towers designed by Swedish architects Malene Björn and Sune Lindström and built by Energoprojekt (Belgrade) directly on the banks of the Gulf. In 1979 they were officially opened for use, as a water reservoir the middle tower (145.80 m high), as a viewing tower with restaurant, café and ballroom the highest tower (185 m) and the smallest of the three towers supplies some areas of the city with electricity and serves the illumination of the complex. The spheres of the reinforced concrete towers are clad with 55,000 Chinese steel plates. The Liberation Tower is another significant landmark. The TV tower made of prestressed concrete with a viewing platform reaches 372 m and is one of the tallest TV towers in the world. The country is particularly proud of the al-Hamra Tower on al-Shuhada Street, a futuristic office skyscraper similar to a rolled sheet of paper. Its structure is made of reinforced concrete, its cladding of aluminium, glass and marble. At 413 m, the Tower is the No. 1 in Kuwait, but in 2015 it ranked “only” 20th among the tallest buildings in the world. The Grand Mosque was inaugurated near the golf course in 1986. The mosque, which is entirely in blue and beige tones in keeping with its surroundings, picks up on architectural details that were once common in Arab Andalusia. 10,000 men and 950 women in a separate hall can gather simultaneously in the mosque, which by the way is open to all visitors, including non-Muslims. Visits are possible every working day morning from nine o’clock, with or without a guided tour. Not unlike in Dubai, Doha or Manama, one can also indulge in the great shopping adventure in Kuwait City, because opulent shopping palaces like The Avenues – to name just one – have long been built here on the Sheikh Zayed Highway. Kuwait’s largest mall (and one of the largest in the world!) gathers more than 800 shops under its glass roof.
Those who want to relax after the shopping stress should pay a visit to the nearby Green Island. It was created in 1988 as the first artificial island on the Gulf, a forerunner of the spectacular island structure off the coast of Dubai. Here everything is a little more modest. Green Island is circular and rests on rocky outcrops brought from the Emirate of al-Fujairah and even the sand for the beaches comes from one of the neighbouring countries. Countless bushes, trees, also palms were planted, cafés, restaurants, leisure facilities were furnished. The Khiran Resort, with its luxurious accommodations and restaurants, beaches and sports facilities, promises unspoilt bathing fun. It is located directly on the golf shore, about 110 km south of Kuwait City in the province al-Ahmadi near the Saudi border. Another destination away from the urban hustle and bustle could be Failaka Island, about 20 km off the coast of the capital. Thanks to its archaeological sites, it offers surprising insights into the Bronze Age, the Dilmun culture and the Hellenistic epoch. You can also relax, arrange a picnic or indulge in local gastronomy, diving and swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf. If you have always wanted to experience a camel race, you should go to al-Jahra in the province of the same name, a few thirty kilometres west of Kuwait City. But only in the winter months, at the al-Atraf Camel Racing Club, will racing camels hunt around the course, and even early in the morning. And jockeys are also no longer part of the game, instead mini robots are strapped to the backs of the camels, which drive the spiky four-legged friends to top performances by whatever means. The crowning glory of a trip to the desert state of Kuwait is a stay of several days in a Desert Camp, including a hearty barbecue dinner with campfire, nights under a magnificent starry sky, encounters with Bedouins.
