Climate & when to go

In summer (April to September) Kuwait is intensely hot. The fact that it is not quite as humid as neighbouring Gulf States is not much consolation. There are plenty of air-conditioned amenities, however, to make a summer visit tolerable.

The winter months are positively chilly in the evenings, but with pleasant daytime temperatures hovering around 18°C. Sandstorms occur throughout the year, and are particularly common in spring (February to April). During spring, the desert is laced in a gossamer of lime green and the city is decorated with petunias, making it the most pleasant time to visit.
