Kuwait Flight Deals with Jazeera Airways


Kuwait rises like an oasis in a country of desert expanse. It has excellent museums, beach activities, a beautiful corniche, a charming souq and some interesting historical sights. It is located at the top of the Persian Gulf, with Iraq to the north and west, and Saudi Arabia to the southwest. Kuwait City, Salmiya, Jahra and Wafrah are the main destinations in Kuwait.


The rebuilding of the country after the Iraq invasion has been an outstanding success. Blessed with around 6% of the world’s oil reserves, oil and oil-related products naturally dominate the economy. With these resources expected to last about another century the need for diversification has not been a priority. For the tourist, Kuwait has subtle attractions waiting to be discovered.
