With its central position on the shores of the Persian Gulf, Kuwait City is the cultural, economic and political centre of the country with the same name. The city boasts luxury hotels and skyscrapers, while the most famous landmarks are the Kuwait Towers, National Museum and the Grand Mosque.
Excellent road infrastructure connects Kuwait City with the surrounding cities of Jaleeb, Aj Jahra, Salmij, as well as, the rest of the country. Future plans include the development of several railway lines and the metro.
Public transportation includes the city bus network. Three bus companies provide bus services to nearby towns and countries. KPTC (Kuwait Public Transport Company) and Kuwait Gulf Link Public Transport Services (KGL) handle local and long-distance transfers to other countries. CityBus operates 28 domestic bus routes.
There are three types of taxis in the city, Call taxis (white colour), airport taxi (larger cars) and Orange taxis (white-and-beige colour). Call taxis are available taxi ranks in front of the hotels thus they are more expensive. Orange taxis are a shared service, while airport taxis are available at the airport.
Car rental is the most desirable way to explore Kuwait by driving on the wide boulevards. You can rent a car at the airport or online. However, before booking the service, learn more about the city driving regulations.
Kuwait International Airport (KWI) is located 16 km away from the city. The airport serves as a hub for Jazeera Airways and Kuwait Airlines, as well as, a base to Kuwait Air Force. The airport handles flights to Europe (Geneva, Rome, London, Paris, Amsterdam), United States (New York), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) and Middle East (Dubai, Doha, Abu Dhabi).
Shuttle airport bus number X3 runs every hour from Kuwait Airport to the city centre. Airport taxis are available outside the airport and are recognisable by the yellow plates.
