Fun is in the Air

Expensive but worth the while are the places of fun and leisure in Kuwait!

The year 2019s winter holidays of mine were spent mostly outdoors, from morning to evening and sometimes even night. I also may have visited all the malls in Kuwait and discovered new places too!

To begin with, boulevard mall in Salmiya is the best place for a full day picnic. There are a lot of things for kids to enjoy over there and many restaurants to try, even the pavements and the lamps are designed beautifully which gives the place an extraordinary and an attractive sort of look. Which is why, this place is ought to be spot number 3 on my places to enjoy list. This place is a must see!

Secondly, marina mall in Salmiya is an exception as it is at its best after sunset. The place quite literally starts gleaming, the scenery can lure any nature loving person into the mall. Short boat rides, is the main attraction of this place.

I believe that if you want a calm outdoor evening then AHOY MATEY, this is your destination. The soothing feeling this place gives can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee from the various cafes over there and without a doubt this place will occupy spot number 2 on my list.

Lastly, my favorite place in Kuwait that I discovered shortly after the winter break started is “Trampo Extreme” which is located in Al Murouj. It is the perfect place for a kid who has a liking for adventure and wants to know their skills in it. It has a ninja course, trampoline trick shots, wall climbing, parkour and whatnot. There is a golf court as well as a horse stable over there.

It has a lot of restaurants varying from Egyptian cuisine, Iranian cuisine to Shake Shack and blaze pizza. Bikes and car dealers showcase their best brands during yearly exhibitions and luckily end of the year exhibitions were going on when I went there so I got the chance to admire those “brand new” automobiles.

Sometimes events of some companies or their anniversaries also take place over there which makes the place light up. That place is a lot of fun. It is expensive, I agree but, it is worth the while, exactly the reason TRAMPO EXTREME is the number 1 spot on my list.

One more place that has to have a spot in my list is the cultural center in Salmiya and to all history and science lovers, welcome home! Believe me, 1 whole day is not enough to explore this vast place.

This museum is one of its kind. It has distinctive halls dedicated to specific topics which include fine arts, human body, robotics, earth and rain forest and more. I personally think that one hall at least takes 1 to 2 hours to explore. This world class museum is also a must see.

After seeing all these places and having a lot of fun discovering and exploring Kuwait I really think that fun was in the air and I strongly suggest that parents should take their children outside and take them away from their digital and electronic world of gadgets for a while and spend a day out with them which is both good for the parent and the child so that they can absorb the beauty, Kuwait has in store for us.
