Shouk Airport Shuttles
Without any access to trains or light rail systems, a pick-up service can go a long way in Kuwait. Reserve a shuttle with either area sedan or taxi providers to stay ahead of the curve, whether you’re looking for a quick one-time drop-off to your hotel or views of the entire city as you make your way to the bay’s shoreline.
Decide what side of town you truly want to see, choosing between the eastern Dasma neighborhood for a close look at the region’s most iconic landmark, the Kuwait Towers, or the northern area of Sharq for a view of Kuwait City’s oldest neighborhood juxtaposed with hyper-modern skyscrapers, not to mention timeless bay breezes. Those wanting the city ambiance away from the water should stay in Mirqab instead, getting the joys of a city within a city, while the southeast Bneid Al Qar creates the perfect balance between beachside ambiance and downtown hustle. Also connected to the same coastline is Salmiya, a nearby city that takes up only a dozen blocks. .
Don’t let your plans pass you before you’ve even landed, especially when it comes to something as easy as shuttle reservations. Print out your confirmation email to avoid the worst, also double-checking to make sure you’ve got extra scans and print-outs of your personal documents, from identification to prescriptions. Keep emergency contacts and hotel reservations on-hand as well, leaving nothing to chance and everything in good hands. .
