    Kuwait is a melting pot of a lot of communities. From North Koreans to Americans to Pinoys to Indians to Kenyans to Samoans to Fijians... the list is endless.

    Despite whatever people have to say: Kuwait is quite open minded when it comes to comparing conservative Islamic Countrys. Dont compare Kuwait to Dubai - Dubai isnt even considered a heritage land anymore - the locals themselves dont live in Dubai - so forget that.

    Back to your question: Kuwait has a lot of history and tradition. Visit the first Governorate of Kuwait - Al Ahmadi; thats where the British first set foot and you will find houses like the ones in the British Country Side.

    Visit Al Jahra - the first battle for Kuwait took place in Jahra. A lot of history there to be told by the old timers.

    Umm Al Maradim and Umm Al Haiman - beautiful coast and crystal waters.

    Dasman Old Kuwait Market in Kuwait City - get a feel of a typical Arab Souk.

    Mina Zour - fantastic place for scuba etc

    Mina Abdullah, Jinoub Jul'iah for camping in the desert.

    One can get the best of brands like DG, Armani etc and other traditional wear as well. Jewellery - visit Souk Watiya behind the Sheraton; the have a gold market there. Electronics - Al Ghanim etc. Handicrafts - the Dasman Souk in Mubarakiya, Kuwait City.

    Kuwait is famous for its hospitality - Arabs love to entertain complete strangers with a lot of warmth. Dont be surprised when an Arab offers you pipping hot bitter Arabica coffee when its 50Degrees in the sun - its just his way of welcoming you (refusing to accept the coffee is an insult - Aib)

    Ahlan Wa Sahlan (Welcome to Kuwait).
