"family...family..family..then family and lots of socializing. Sports is also popular. Kuwaities also like to shop, dine out and hand out at cafes," commented an expat living in Kuwait City.

"Life here is how you make it for yourself: try to get a job without split hrs: lot of businesses here work 9-1 and then 4-8, and on this schedule you may have little time for anything else. Next is to find suitable pace to live. Many ppl with kids prefer apartments, so their kids can have some playmates. Although there are no theaters, there are plenty of cinemas, sport clubs, beaches, lot of eateries (dining out is much cheaper then in UK or US)," said an expat in Kuwait City.

"Life for expats and digital nomads in Kuwait City is generally quite comfortable. The city is modern and well-developed, with plenty of amenities and services available to make life easier. The cost of living is relatively low, and the city is home to a diverse range of cultures and nationalities. Expats and digital nomads can find plenty of opportunities to network and socialize, as well as plenty of places to explore and enjoy. The city is also well-connected, with good public transport links and easy access to the rest of the country," remarked one expat who made the move to Kuwait City.
