Accessible Travel

Travellers with mobility issues may struggle in Kuwait. Like many Gulf states, most streets are not designed for pedestrians. Some streets are sandy, some have no pavements and others are impassable because of building works. Buildings have little provisions for people limited mobility, many with high curbs and narrow doorways.

However, modern hotels and apartment buildings have lifts fitted. Older travellers will find they are treated with respect, with their needs accommodated where possible, but the infrastructure for those needing more accessibility remains poor.
