Where the Persian Gulf Meets Mesopotamia
Kuwait is perhaps the least visited of the Gulf States, at least for those not working in the oil industry. It lacks the crowd-drawing glitz of Dubai and is not a major air hub like Doha or Abu Dhabi (though it is well connected). The nation is often thought of in the context of the Gulf War, a tragic period from which it has almost entirely recovered. Oil has made Kuwait wealthy and it is comfortable and easy to visit. Beneath the modern veil of development and the oil-focused economy lies a deeper history of trade and seafaring, stretching back centuries. This heritage can still be felt in the country’s souqs, in the artifacts preserved in its museums, and while watching dhows ply the waters of Kuwait Bay.
