What are the pros and cons of living in Kuwait?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Kuwait responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Kuwait appreciate the country's modern infrastructure, which makes it easy to get around and access amenities. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which allows them to save money and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. Additionally, Kuwait is a safe and secure country, which is attractive to expats and digital nomads. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the conservative culture and strict laws to be restrictive. Additionally, the hot and humid climate can be difficult to adjust to," said one in Kuwait.

"I dont like the weather, the fact there is no entertainment. I dont like the indecisive government. I dont like the racism kuwait has towards expats," explained one expat in Kuwait City.
