"Kuwait Towers" Kuwait Things to Do Tip by xiquinho

Kuwait Things to Do: 74 reviews and 194 photos

These water towers, resembling huge balls of sparkly yarn impaled on giant knitting needles, are practically a symbol of Kuwait. The towers sit on a promontory marking the southern mouth of Kuwait Bay. They are actually meant to evoke the shape of traditional Arabian rose-water sprinklers, and they really do hold water. There is an observation deck and coffee shop within the upper sphere of the tallest structure. The lower sphere also sports a restaurant.

Directions: Open: 10h00-23h30. Admission to the observation deck: KD1. Tel: +965 244-4021.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
