Around one-third of the total population of Kuwait are people from other countries who settled here to work. Most of the Industry here is worked by people from India. Indian families come here to make money because in India the economy and money exchange is so low.

Many stereotypes about the middle east.

The stereotype of the middle east has left most Americans with mixed feelings about visiting a middle eastern country. With the rise of terrorism all over the world, one might assume that vacationing in the middle east is unsafe. Do not get me wrong, I do not suggest you plan a family vacation in Iraq or Syria, but many of the countries over here are relatively safe.

There is much scenery that one can miss out on by believing the mainstream ideology of an unsafe middle east. You are more likely to be stuck in a terror attack in your own neighborhood than to be in a terror situation in Kuwait.

Why visit Kuwait?

In Kuwait, there is a sense of home. Many of the shops and restaurants are based in America. You can find anything from Mcdonalds to Olive Garden to Starbucks. So why leave home? But Kuwait is rich in culture and from a-to-z is unique in all things done here. Like in America, Kuwait has water parks, an aquarium, and much, much more. In other words, you have all the comforts of home with a middle east kick. The native food is wonderful. Many of the foods here are a mixture of Arabian, Persian, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisines.

In conclusion, If you are looking for a spot to get away from the "norm" I fully endorse a vacation in Kuwait. With American marines protecting its borders, Kuwait is safer than any other destination in the world today. Plan your next vacation here in Kuwait, You just might have a different outlook on the middle east when you return home, And It will also give you bragging rights for years to come. #Travel #Environment
