Voice of Travelers to Kuwait City

Aahotep from Egypt

Hi, I'm Aahotep from Cairo. I just came back from Kuwait City. I few there with my husband. We took Jazeera Airways. My husband bought our tickets, he said he's done it all online. He got our ticket confirmation delivered to his email. I liked the Airbus plane with which we flew. On board I bought some cosmetics from the Kunooz Duty Free service. My husband liked the comfortable, leather seats on-board. Once we landed in Kuwait City we went to our fantastic, modern hotel. I liked visiting designer shopping malls, such as 360 Mall and Marina Mall. We also went up Kuwait Tower, where we admired the panorama of Kuwait City from the viewing platform and then had an exquisite meal in the restaurant. I hope my husband and I will get more air tickets and return to Kuwait soon.

Khalid from United Arab Emirates

I'm Khaild from Dubai, UAE. I just came back from a trip in Kuwait City. I flew to Kuwait City with Emirates Airline. I think the service on board was really world-class. The staff was courteous, the food delicious and the plane kept in pristine condition. My ticket was issued as an e-ticket, so there was no need for a physical paper ticket. I'm impressed that I can manage everything electronically. I could purchase my ticket, make amendments to my ticket, add extra services and find all relevant information about my air ticket in one place on Emirates website. I enjoyed myself in Kuwait City. I especially liked visiting the Mirror House art gallery and viewing the mirror mosaics inside.
