Where to take your friends when they visit Kuwait

My last post was about where to take your visiting friends for food and drink in Kuwait. Well, this post will be how to entertain them during their visit. It’ll be mostly about chale time and beach activities, seeing that we’re still in summer time.

These are some of my most favorite things in the whole world, here goes:

  • A boat trip to Kubbar or Garouh Islands for some snorkeling or scuba diving is a must. The water there is just amazing.
  • Pick a day where the tide is high at noon and lounge for hours on the sand, in the sun, on the beach. There is nothing like relaxing on the beach, watching people getting active in the water. I love watching the jet skies, parachutes, sail boats, and canoes. If you’re really lucky, you’ll have a cool neighbor in chale with all the latest water sport gadgets. Mine has this cool go-kart type that runs on sails. He also has a sail boat and like 3 canoes. He’s an old dude of like 60+, bs mashalla 3alaiha, his age ain’t stopping him from enjoying life.
  • Have a late night BBQ on the beach, watching the sparkeling lights of Shu3aiba Refinery. I’ve been told by my Saudi friends last week, that Shu3aiba is so beautiful; like a gorgeous bride all cleaned up and having a huge mansion right on the beach.
  • A visit to SeaShell Resort in Jlai3a. Enjoy some jet skiing there, other water sports, and a good snack or meal.
  • Spend a day at Movenpick El-Bede3, where you can swim in their amazing pool. I won’t recommend swimming in their sea because of water waste pollution, but their beach is the ideal location for suntanning.
  • Go to Pink Moon for some trendy and stylish fashion shopping.

There are a ton of other things to do in Kuwait. None of your friends will get bored visiting Kuwait. Atleast I hope not.

Where to feed your friends when they Visit Kuwait

We all have GCC and Arab friends that come visit us for a few days. We try to make them come during the wonderful months between November and March, in an attempt to deceive them about our devilishly hot weather.

If you’re like me, I don’t mind having them come visit during the summer months. I like the sea, enjoy the beach, and love water activities. Therefore, it goes without saying that if anyone visits me in the summer; be sure we’ll be spending most of out time in chale. Only problem is the unpredictable dusty weather. That would be the only thing stopping us from having a good beach\sea time. (Insert an sincere apology for my Saudi friends whom witnessed 3 full days AND nights of dust last week,, sorry girls, so so sorry).

Anyways. There are a few places, i.e. food stuffing places, that every visitor asks to go to:

  • We have to start the day with Breakfast at the Early Bird Cafe (have no clue why, even though I’m gonna head there after this post to have breakfast and Coffee).
  • Go for dinner at the ever so trendy Slider Station or the recently opened Open Flame Kitchen.
  • Enjoy the view at Marina Crescent and Marina Waves.
  • Have a late Lebanese lunch, after swimming, at Al-Mijana in Al-Koot Mall.
  • Have a very late night Milk shake and apple pie ala mode in Johnny RocketsManshar Mall.
  • Enjoy an early evening snack and dessert at Chocolate Macaroon in Jlai3a.
  • Now if your friends are shway classy or pertinacious, then you obviously have to take them for breakfast at Dean And Deloca in Avenues.
  • Enjoy a cup-a-joe at Starbucks Free Trade Zone, and just watch all the cool bikers with their cool bikes. What a sight.

Bon appetit, mes amis…
