Kuwait is one of the top destinations in the Middle Eastern with a perfect balance of liberal and conservative culture. The region is home to a formidably strong economy and top tourist attractions. Kuwait remains a top tourist destination for a number of reasons, primarily due to the fact it is a slightly liberal country and a foreigner would always feel welcome there.
Whichever country you visit, the better thing to do is learn about a number of practical facts and information regarding getting around the place. If you are visiting Kuwait, it is better to follow Safratrab3, the fastest growing tourist agency in Kuwait. The Travel and Tourism Company specializes in corporate travels, business travel, leisure travel, and holidays in Kuwait. It remains the ideal choice of many foreigners visiting Kuwait when they want to book hotels, learn a thing or two about the local food, and some regulations.
With that being said, here are some key facts about Kuwait to keep in mind before you visit:
1. The tip is not officially accepted, but in some larger restaurants, the tip may be included in the total bill. If you want to thank the helpful waiter, you can add 10% of the amount to the bill or round it up to any convenient amount.
2. Negotiation is possible only in open markets since negotiation has been a ritual for quite some time. In stores and shopping malls, prices are fixed; it is also worth noting that there is no VAT in Kuwait.
3. Most stores and shopping centers open from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and work until 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. During the day, some stores may be closed for a long pause. Thursday and Saturday are considered short workdays, and on Friday almost all stores are holidays.
4. Tourists, who plan to make phone calls in different destinations in the world, it is recommended to buy a prepaid plastic card. It is sold in all kiosks, gas stations and post offices. This plastic card is accepted by all public telephones. The calls of conventional public street phones would be the most profitable.
5. Keep in mind whoever expects to visit remote areas of the city and travel outside tourist areas, has to pay attention to the choice of clothing. Walking clothes must be turtleneck and long sleeves; too bright and provocative attire is considered a sign of bad taste and can be misunderstood. Tourists in low-necked clothes do not even receive permission to enter the territory of religious attractions.
6. The local population is very reluctant to alcoholic beverages; it is possible to consume spirits only in designated areas. The appearance in a public place while drinking is considered a serious violation of public rules, which could be followed by a hefty fine.
7. The main voltage is 220V; Three-pin plugs are the most common. The required adapters can be borrowed from the hotel or purchased at any supply store.
8. Public banks and other government offices open early, at 7:00 - 7:30 am and serve visitors from 1:00 - 1:30 pm. Some larger agencies may also work for a few hours at night. Tuesday is a day off, and Thursday is half a day in Kuwait.
