Welcome to the Kuwait hub at David’s Been Here! Immediately after my incredible, 10-day trip through Armenia, I had a 48-hour layover in Kuwait City in early October of 2019. I used the time to explore as much of this beautiful Persian Gulf nation as I could. The rest of the world still mostly knows Kuwait from the horrific images of the Gulf War in the 1990s, but the country has rebounded in a big way since then. It’s now a gorgeous, peaceful, and tourist-friendly nation that has a lot to offer curious travelers.

I personally recommend spending a couple of days exploring Kuwait City and the surrounding area. Then, if you’re up for a different type of adventure, go on a desert safari. Unfortunately, I was crunched for time, so I wasn’t able to explore the desert, but it’s at the top of my list for the next time I visit.┬áDuring my time in Kuwait, I teamed up with my friend Yousef from Local Tour Kuwait. He’s super friendly and knowledgeable and taught me a lot about Kuwaiti food, culture, and history!

Check out the map above to see all of the places in Kuwait I visited. If you click on any of the cities, you’ll be taken to my Kuwait City travel guide. The guide is also linked below, along with all of my Kuwait travel episodes. I hope they entertain and inform you and that you enjoy reading and watching them as much as I enjoyed creating them!
