When to Visit

Kuwait flaunts a desert climate with scorching summers and mild winters. For the most pleasant weather, the period from November to April reigns supreme. Although winter can bring occasional rainfall, this season also offers the opportunity to take part in Kuwait's colourful national celebrations, such as National and Liberation Day in late February.

While the blistering summer heat from June to September might challenge visitors, those inclined towards indoor activities can still enjoy Kuwait's malls, museums, and indoor entertainment facilities. However, do bear in mind that during Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn until dusk, some daily routines and services might alter.
