Direction: the Indian Ocean
Forget what you’ve heard! A non-stop flight to Kuwait, name of the country and the capital, isn’t just for business travellers. This tiny Persian Gulf country has more and more to offer for tourists. Visitors are drawn here by the coastline and immense beaches, the modernity of its capital Kuwait City, the charming Bedouin culture which is still very much alive throughout the country, and the impressive shopping, from souks to ultra-modern galleries. All this makes a Nice-Kuwait non-stop flight and the holiday that follows an exotic getaway that’s both unique and pleasant.

What to do in
Koweit City ?
Your first experience with Kuwait may have been watching the first Gulf War unfold on the television, but the Kuwaiti emirate has long since turned the page on this dark chapter in its history. Safe and peaceful, the country and its capital have become forward-thinking, while continuing to cultivate all the pleasures that the present has to offer! Shopping, architecture, the sea, culture, and lifestyle: there’s much here to seduce any visitor. And all of it is well worth a holiday in this gateway to the desert, or at least an extended stopover on route to the other side of the world.
