Kuwait: Summer Is Officially Here

Summer has officially started in Kuwait – schools are out, summer courses have started and summer activities are a top priority for all bloggers.

yo_ghurt over at stillkuwaiting found something to do this summer.

If you feel the need to cool down for an hour or so (and who doesn’t in Kuwait at the moment), there are various places along the Corniche offering jetski hire (or even jetsky, as it says here).

More summers activities are suggested by Zdistrict, who visits a new location in Kuwait.

The Sahara Golf Club really doesn’t feel like it is something available in Kuwait, it is a very well done Golf Course which caters to its members. You have to be a member to play there, but there was nobody to ask questions. They had other services, I like the whole design and the application of the wood in the interior but I felt the rooms themselves were a bit tacky. Overall I think it is heaven for any Golf play and if they had good food then people would like eating there as well.

Also let's not to forget the old Kuwaiti favorite past time in the summer – fishing ! Mjkout over at Q8i.org writes:

These are some pictures from our trip to 3oha island in Kuwait was a nice trip we had fun, on the way back i took some pictures of Kuwait City, Kuwait Towers….
Check the flower at the back of the Trash car.. NICE

Speaking of where to go in summer Hugs from Kuwait wonders about safety at the local theme park.

All of these tragedies have made me wonder just how safe amusement parks are in Kuwait. And I am guessing they are not very safe. We went to Entertainment City a few weeks ago. I saw a ride operator allowing a 2 year old child go on the mid-size roller coaster with her parents. She was so small that there was no way to buckle her into the seat. Her idiot father simply held onto her as the ride progressed. And there was a height chart right at the gate and of course the little girl was too small to go on the ride.

Of course it is hot in Kuwait – real hot – and some people even leave Kuwait to enjoy their summer vacations abroad but Zaydounover atKUWAIT UNPLUGGED does not agree.

تصدقون يا جماعة… مهما كان الجو سيء في الكويت، على الأقل يكون سيء في بلدنا أفضل بكثير من أن يكون سيء في البلاد التي نسافر إليها

You know what..it doesn't matter how bad the weather is in Kuwait. At least it is better for us to have it bad in our country than it being bad in the country we travel to.

هنا نستطيع تجنب الطقس السيء إما في البيت أو العمل، لكن أين المتعة في السفر طمعاً في جو جميل وشوارع أجمل عندما نصل هناك بعد عناء السفر وصرف المبالغ و لا نجد سوى الأمطار الغزيرة والغيوم السوداء الكئيبة التي لا تنفرج لأسابيع وتمنع الناس من الخروج… أي إجازة هذه بالله عليكم؟؟

Here you can avoid the bad weather by either staying home or at work but where is the fun in traveling to a place with nice weather and cleaner streets and when you reach there after all the hardship in travel and spending money to discover heavy rains and gloomy dark clouds that do not stop for weeks and prevent people from going out. What kind of vacation is that?

Qias at io81 wonders where did the advertisements go and asks whether their disappearance has anything to do with summer.

Everyday while i drive back home from work, i listen to the only 88.8 and look at the ads on the road. Most ads out there suck, but at least its something to look at and mock :p. So today as i drove back home ! there were no ads ?!
