of Kuwait with surrounding
areas. - Landkarte von Kuwait.

The capital of Kuwait is als called Kuwait, and is also the biggest city of the country. Flights to Kuwait usually go to the capital. Kuwait is a small area between Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
The official language of Kuwait is Arabic. On the map we have quoted the name of the country in the Arabic script.
Tourism is of lower importance in Kuwait. The main income of the country is the petrol business, strongly protected by the United States. Democracy is not really important in this business: Kuwait is the last country where women are explicitely excluded from elections. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Kuwait.
