See the symbolic Kuwait Towers
One of Kuwait’s most iconic monuments are its three towers in the heart of the city. These three structures are not just awesome pieces of architecture to spice up your photos, they are a symbol for the country’s economic progression and pride.
An architectural feat
Designed by Swedish architects Sune Lindström and Malene Björn, the towers have become the monument people associate with the city, plastering them on postcards and in guidebooks. They are beautiful and sleek, coated with 55,000 steel paints in eight different colors ranging from gold to turquoise blue.
If you would like to visit the towers, then make your first stop the observation desk dubbed the ‘Viewing Sphere’ in the main tower. It stands at 123 meters above sea level and gives incredible 360⁰ views of the city and beyond. The platform here revolves around and has telescopes for you to zoom into interesting sites from above.
The middle tower is in fact used as a reservoir, holding up to one million gallons of water. The last tower without a sphere, is an electricity tower used to illuminate the others and the surrounding grounds. Together all three make for a wonderful site both from the ground and from the Viewing Sphere.
Grab a bite to eat in the sky
In the main tower, you can find a few great places for a coffee and a snack or a fancy meal. Try out international foods at Ofak Restaurant, enjoy panoramic views from Le café and the Royal Café or grab a quick snack at Al Waha lounging area. There is also a small cafeteria on the grounds at the base of the towers, where you can sit out in the sun and enjoy the view.
