Visit the nearby island of Failaka
Failaka is certainly one of the other places to visit in Kuwait. It is a rather small island situated about 20 km east of the city, where several boats and ferries depart daily. The journey takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on which ship you choose.
When planning what to do in Kuwait, don´t miss a visit to the Souk Al-Mubarakiya Market, which is the centre of everything at any time of day. Several thousand people lived here before the war, but after the war, many people didn’t return. One reason is the existence of a military base that occupies a large part of the island. Currently, only a few dozen inhabitants live on the island. That is why plans were made for a complete transformation of the island into a tourist centre, but unfortunately, they were interrupted by the crisis in 2009.
