When to visit

Kuwait experiences long, dry, and very hot summers. Daytime temperatures in the hottest months typically range from 42-48°C. Early summer is cooler and with stronger winds, while late summer is more humid. Winters are short but can be considerably colder, and temperatures often drop to -5°C at night. The majority of the country’s rain falls between October and April, so for cool summer temperatures and low humidity, the best time to visit is May to June.
