“I’m only going to mention Al-Kout — not for the shopping, but because of the architecture, dancing water fountain, and just all-around beauty of the place. You have to take visitors to Kout if for no other reason than just to sit outside and have a cup of coffee next to that mesmerizing fountain. It faces the sea.”

The vision for Failaka Heritage Village and the Palace of Sheikh Abdullah Al Salam, a previous ruler of Kuwait commenced in 2002 under the auspices of the then Emir of Kuwait H.H. Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah. The above task was further initiated by Masharee Al Khair Establishment a Kuwait charity, who placed the following message on the wall of the reception building:
“Our heritage was the greatest achievement of our ancestors, and our fathers kept it for us, we implant this heritage in the minds of our children, our heritage is a river full of light which we take continuously to guide us to the good, to the prosperity in the future. We owe a lot to our great heritage, which was the reason for what we have accomplished and achieved.”
His financial and moral support was a magnificent motive to keep the heritage area with all its contents and its environmental surroundings. So we have restored and renovated the whole area, just to keep the heritage of our ancestors and fathers, to reflect His Highnesses wish to give the new generation an idea of this great heritage, and from its revenue, the charity is fundingAccomodations: Fifty Heritage Houses, originally built sixty years ago, now fully restored and furnished with satellite television and ensuite facilities.

For proof that the Vikings made it to the Middle East, albeit only model ones, it’s worth visiting the Kuwait Marine Museum with its impressive collection of large, scaled-model dhows. A novel shop sells 21-piece knot boards and Gipsy Moth lanterns among other nautical souvenirs, such as barometers and sextants. You can even buy your own Nelson figurine, incomplete with one arm. On the wall of the museum is a certificate, dated 2002, from the Guinness World Records announcing that Al-Hashemi II, the huge and unmissable wooden dhow adjacent to the museum, is the largest wooden boat on earth, measuring a world record-breaking 80.4m long, 18.7m wide and weighing an estimated 2500 tonnes.
The vision of Husain Marafie, owner of the Radisson SAS Hotel, the dhow was completed in 1998 from mahogany and ekki logs from Cameroon, planks from the Ivory Coast and pine logs from Oregon.
The site of a bloody battle between the Kuwaitis and the Iraqis just before Liberation, Al-Qurain House is now a museum dedicated to those who laid their lives. A mounted Iraqi tank at the Jahra Gate roundabout at the end of Fahd Al-Salem Street is a reminder of the folly of war. Al-Qurain House is known to be the “symbol of Kuwaiti resistance.” It now houses a museum built to commemorate all those who lost their lives in that battle. So if you’re interested in reliving the horror of the battle and part of Kuwait’s historical past, a visit to this fascinating museum is recommended! 360Dewan blog has a great post with more information regarding this historical site HERE.
The Liberation Tower is the second tallest structure in Kuwait. Construction of the tower commenced before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. It was meant to be called The Kuwait Telecommunications Tower. When the invasion took place, construction, which was almost half-way complete, was put on hold. However, the structure received no damage, and construction resumed after Saddam Hussein’s forces were expelled on February 27, 1991. Upon completion in 1993, the tower was renamed the Liberation Tower, symbolizing Kuwait’s liberation from Iraq. The tower contains a revolving restaurant and observation platform (in the first disc-shaped pod; now closed to the public for security reasons), and also houses radio and other telecommunications offices. The structure stands at 372 meters high (1,220 ft) at its pinnacle. The roof of the second pod on the tower is 308 meters high (1,010 ft). It is similar to the CN Tower since both contain a revolving restaurant, observation platform, telecommunications equipment and similar architecture.
