Kuwait is in the Middle East at the tip of the Persian Gulf alongside Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran.

For such a tiny country, Kuwait, with the world’s 5th largest oil reserves, has so many attractions, and surprises for tourists. In Kuwait City, spend time lingering in the old Souq, now housed in a modern building. The market still retains the look and flavour of its ancient past, where you might spend a pleasant lunchtime sampling a range of delicacies. Along the Corniche, the largest aquarium in the Middle East dazzles with exotic specimens, and at the Tareq Rajab Museum, visitors can view the private collection of Islamic art once owned by Kuwait’s first minister of antiquities. Or perhaps the modern side of Kuwait, like the stunning triple towers, or the shops and restaurants are more to your taste. Whichever sites you plan to visit in Kuwait, be sure to begin by visiting our Travel Health Clinic, to ensure that you are completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for Kuwait.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU

Kuwait is very hot, with the only relief coming from the cooling sea breezes. You will need light, loose fitting clothing. Try to keep yourself well hydrated by drinking fluids all through the day, and protect yourself from the sun, by wearing a sun block cream with an SPF of no less than 20. Wear head covering and avoid extended exposure to the sun.

Avoid drinking anything but bottled, purified water, or spring water, and also use bottled water for brushing your teeth. Avoid ice cubes and fountain drinks.

In Kuwait city’s many fine restaurants you can enjoy the taste of the Middle East, and just about any other type of cuisine you might want. Since Kuwait is mostly desert, food production is very limited, and most foods must be imported, except for seafood which is readily available from the waters of the Gulf. Main dishes usually feature lamb with rice, or fresh fish. The Lebanese influence pervades, and you will find your favourite appetizers, such as hummus, falafel, tabouleh salad and kebabs .Hot drinks are usually served with dates or other sweets, and juices and sodas are available. Alcohol is not legal in Kuwait.

The health care system in Kuwait is good, however, it is best that in case you require treatment, you use private clinics. A good standard of Health care is available in Kuwait city. It is best to ask your hotel for referral to a clinic they recommend. Make arrangements in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need at a public or private facility.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your entire stay, including any activities you intend to partake in, such as water sports, desert tours, etc.
