Create an itinerary including Kuwait Towers
The city's signature landmark and the nation's most recognizable symbols, Kuwait Towers offer 360-degree views of the city and the Gulf. The three towers--with characteristic blue-green spheres covered with more than 41,000 enameled discs--were constructed during the 1970s. Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed chose the design, which resembles a tiled dome of a mosque. The highest tower rises 187 m (614 ft) above the ground, featuring observation decks on two levels, plus a revolving restaurant and a cafe. In March 2016, the towers opened to the public after a major four-year refurbishment process.

  • Good place to visit in Kuwait. One of the iconic plac which you can't miss it. The viewing gallery is very nice and the rotating platform gives you an actual 360degree view from there. They could have added few seat's at least in the cafe area for the people sit back and enjoy the views. It's really disappointing. Very friendly staffs you find from the ticket counter to the end. Please choose a day with clear weather to get the actual beauty of this place. Feel like the evening timing could be the best.
  • Amazing place. These two towers are actually water towers.. the middle tower looking like Capitol Hill tower contains lighting system for decoration during the darkness. When you go on the top tower, there is a cafeteria, and a section that spins around and it takes 30 minutes per revolution. During that spin, you have sight at a beautiful downtown, water (gulf) and nice buildings around downtown. After that spin though your head start feeling dizzy. Lower tower is where you find your gift shop . Customer service is epic! People take you in elevator up and down, and go above and beyond to help you around! Please don’t bring any other currency other than KD. Please do not smoke in the area and the compound around. Overall the price is 3KD which is approximately $9.0. Way cheaper Compared to Willis tower downtown Chicago if you ever visited. Otherwise they call can speak English! Recommended
