The country’s economy revolves almost fully around its oil industry. In fact, Kuwait has the fifth largest oil reserves in the world and according to its GDP, Kuwait is also the 5th richest country in the world. The country was also the epicenter of the infamous Gulf War in 1990.
But Kuwait is not all about oil. The country has some outstanding tourist attractions little known to travellers. The stunning Arabian architectural structures take pride of place here and the country has continued the preservation of this heritage with much enthusiasm. Some of the popular attractions in Kuwait include the Kuwait Towers, the Tareq Rajab Museum, the Liberation Tower, the Kuwait Mosque, Kuwait musical fountain, Kuwait Zoological Park and the Aqua Park.
Opened in 1995, Aqua Park is located next to the Kuwait Towers on the Arab Gulf Street and is the Arabian Gulf’s biggest water park. The park which covers an area of more than 60,000 square metres is one of the most refreshing places to visit in the Middle East. Highlights include water games, a large swimming pool, waterslides, go-karting, a beach, scuba diving, paint ball and beach volleyball.
A popular favourite among kids as well as adults, Aqua Park provides plenty of entertainment and variety for the entire family making it a not-to-be-missed attraction in Kuwait.
