Not only did I enjoy Kuwait, i loved it so much I'll go back again (I was told to come in Nov/Dec so I can hit the dessert AKA Barr in local dialect)
I understand the best time to travel to Kuwait is November-April
Of course my initial low expectations, along with the lovliest family friends made the trip one of the funnest 6 days ever.
Kuwait itself is an lovely mix of extremes, much like most other gulf countries- You'll find a fully covered woman waiving the latest Dior handbag, and an old man in local clothes typing away on his laptop in a Starbucks cafe- This would amuse Westerners...I'm not one but I'm just mentioning it here for those of you who are.
The Kuwaiti's have a great attitude, always smiling and highly intelligent, especially the women (1 out of 3 PhD holders is a woman there).
A big shout out to all you Kuwaiti's out there, and Salmooli 3alla La Notre

First and Business class are comfortable, but seats arent so relaxing (ie not those beds you have on KLM and Brit... more travel advice
