Kuwait City, the country's capital and largest urban area, combines many of the aspects of a modern, rich city of the Gulf region, with a more rugged and ordinary core.

There's much more to do: stop by Old Kuwaiti Souq Market, meet the residents at Kuwait Zoo, don't miss a visit to Sheikh Mubarak Kiosk, and buy something for everyone on your list at 360 Mall.
