In the recent past, people seem more and more eager to visit Arabic countries. The truth is that there are not so many restrictions, even though you still cannot go to Mecca or Medina if you are a non-Muslim. However, Kuwait has no such restrictions, and you can visit its cities anytime. Even so, there are a probably a few things that you should know before you get there. Going to a foreign country without researching its culture and habits may lead to insults that you did not even know existed. That is why some homework is needed. With that being said, take a look at a few things that you should know about Kuwait. Even though Kuwait is an Arabic country, only about a third of the people who live there are Kuwaitis. That is because oil makes a huge part of the country’s economy, and many expats work there. As a result, there is a lot of diversity, especially in large cities. To be honest, this has its advantages. At least you will never have trouble communicating since most people are fluent in English. Chances are you are going to find some of your own nationals there. It depends on where exactly you are going. Since this is an Arabic country we are talking about, you would think that there are restrictions as far as clothing is concerned. However, that is not true. You will see that women take fashion very seriously. At the same time, some women take their religion very seriously, and they will keep their heads covered. Even so, nobody will say anything or look at you in a certain way if you are a woman and you are wearing tight jeans or a skirt. Nonetheless, do try to be respectful and dress modestly. It is the right thing to do. Kuwait may not be as strict as other Arabic countries, but they still forbid the drinking of alcohol. Shortly, Kuwait is a dry country, and you cannot find alcoholic beverages anywhere. You would be surprised to learn that not even hotels serve alcohol, which is possible even in Saudi Arabia. The point is that alcohol is non-existent, and you should not bring your own either. It is just plain disrespectful. As for when it is the best time to travel to Kuwait, you probably want to stay clear from their summer. The temperatures can reach up to 54 degrees, and no, that is not Fahrenheit but Celsius. 54 degrees Celsius is the equivalent of 129 Fahrenheit. You will most likely get baked. Inside of every home and every other building has AC units, but sometimes the weather is so hot that they cannot handle the heat. Plus, you do not want to go on vacation only to stay inside all day long, right? You probably want to see the camel races and do all sorts of fun activities that are available in Kuwait. So, to answer your question about when is the best time to go to Kuwait, you should probably consider October through March. As for the customs in Kuwait, you will find some peculiar things. For one, you should never accept a gift or take something with your left hand. You should not give a gift with your left hand either. It is considered unclean because it is destined for handling the bathroom duties. So, even if you are left-handed, refrain from using it as much as possible if you are accompanied by Kuwaitis. It is very common to get invited to someone's home when you travel to Kuwait. People are very hospitable and curious, which is why it is insulting to refuse. Even if you are in no mood for a home visit, you should at least pass by. You can take advantage of that time to learn about Kuwait’s culture and traditions. You will learn a great deal of things, and some of them are pretty fascinating. When you get to Kuwait, do not be surprised if gas is cheaper than water. The country's economy is 85% based on oil, so they have a lot of petroleum. Plus, they live in a hot climate, so it makes sense that water is more expensive. As to that, one way to get around in Kuwait is by renting a car, which would be cheap as far as gas is concerned, but you should know that driving in this country is usually reckless, and you may end up paying for the car through no fault of your own. Taxis are your best choice. When you are addressing someone in Kuwait, you should use their full name. So, if your name is John Michael Smith, Kuwaitis will use your full name. They will not leave a single name out. And neither should you. However, if you find that tedious and too long, you should ask permission before referring to someone using a single name. If permission is not granted, it is insulting to call them otherwise. How you keep your legs when you talk to someone is also important. For example, you cannot have them crossed, and you should never show anyone the soles of your feet. Keep them on the ground at all times to avoid offending someone. Lastly, if you see falcons everywhere, do not get alarmed. Chances are that every single falcon belongs to someone. People in Kuwait still have falcons, and they are very proud of this tradition. You should try some falconry as well. It is challenging but quite fascinating. Kuwait is one of those countries about which people have a lot of common misconceptions. Yes, it is a religious country, but it is quite liberal. Other than that, the people have an interesting culture, and everyone is so nice and friendly. You will feel welcomed there if you decide to go. Plus, Kuwait is a rich country so you have plenty of opportunities to have some fun. You will enjoy yourself while there,
