When to visit

Spring and winter are the best times to book your package holiday to Kuwait. The spring months of February to April are cool and pleasant, and the desert is laced with a gossamer covering of lime green and pretty petunias. November to March can get chilly in the evenings, but it’s still very pleasant during the day and rain is minimal.
