Kuwait is a small country in Western Asia on the coast of the Persian Gulf. It’s surrounded by Saudi Arabia to the south and Iraq to the north and lies across from Iran. It’s one of the richest countries in oil in the world but it’s more than just a rich country with its oil fields — there are many other things that attract tourists every year, such as museums, historical monuments, and amazing beaches. Now, we will discuss the best tourist places in Kuwait.

Arabian Gulf Street

This is the longest street in Kuwait. It is one of the best Kuwait tourist spots. It has many shops and restaurants, including a famous fish market.

You can do online shopping in Kuwait as well.

Kuwait Zoo

The zoo has been known for its well-kept grounds and friendly staff who are happy to assist visitors. The zoo is owned by the Kuwaiti government and is managed by a committee of volunteers.

One of the most popular attractions at Kuwait Zoo is its elephant exhibit which opened in 2012. The exhibit houses 4 Indian elephants: 2 females named Zinah & Jawaher, as well as males named Farouq & Zakiya (who recently gave birth to a baby boy named Rafil). Visitors can feed these gentle giants with fresh produce from one of several fruit trees growing throughout the exhibit area!
