Com­pris­ing nine cities in to­tal, any per­ceived dif­fi­cul­ties in get­ting from place to place are quickly al­layed when re­al­is­ing that it is one of the small­est coun­tries in the world in terms of land area, and the ma­jor­ity of that land is desert.

In terms of ur­ban hype, it is largely sat­u­rated to the East coast look­ing out to the Per­sian Gulf, with nearly all cities within an hour of each other.

The time be­tween each of them is aided by an ex­ten­sive and modern high­way net­work which com­pen­sates the rail void and acts as the fore­most mode of trans­port when in the coun­try.

Buses are on hand for those who don’t have their own cars (or drivers) which also cross bor­ders to other Gulf States in some cir­cum­stances.

In terms of get­ting to Kuwait in the first place, Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port is the prin­ci­pal hub, while from a trade per­spec­tive the coun­try also boasts one of the largest ship­ping in­dus­tries in the re­gion; en­forced and man­aged by the Kuwait Ports Pub­lic Au­thor­ity across the nu­mer­ous har­bours along the coast­line.

For the busi­ness trav­eller, how­ever, wheels - and air con­di­tion­ing - are the call of the day, but there is never too much time to get com­pletely com­fort­able be­fore reach­ing your des­ti­na­tion soon af­ter.
