To describe how pleasant the weather in Kuwait City is during the year, two travel values were calculated. Kuwait borders Iraq and Saudi Arabia and borders the desert to the north, east, south, west, north - east and east - west. It is windy all year round, but it is cool, dry and mostly clear in summer, with high humidity and little rainfall. Summer is long, muggy - dry and clear in Kuwait City; winter is cooler, drier and mostly clear, though not as warm as in other parts of Kuwait.
For the purposes of this report, the geographical coordinates of Kuwait City are presented on the map below. The map shows the distance from the city center to the north, east, south, west, north - east and east - west.
Within the city limits, Kuwait City is estimated to have a population of 63,600, and 90% of that population live in the 500 square kilometre area surrounding Kuwait City and its port.
Other important urban areas include the new city of Ahmadi, which is being built by the Kuwait Oil Company. Kuwait has commercial reserves of fuel, including oil and gas, as well as a large number of oil and gas fields.
Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC) produces oil acquired from Chevron of Saudi Arabia in 1984 through the purchase of the Getty oil company. In 1946, oil was struck and began to export to the United States, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain. The following year, Kuwait participated in onshore production in the shared zone with Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, but split the zone and continues to share oil revenues.
No visa is required to enter Kuwait, but national identity cards can be used for entry. Airport taxis are available in Kuwait City, with fares to most points outside the city being KWD5.
The government building is the Bayan Palace, and the main palace is the seat where the emir, during his stay in Dar Salwa, governs the daily affairs of the country. Kuwaiti restaurants are located in Ferij, Suwailih and Salmiya, but there are better options in other parts of Kuwait, such as Al-Qasr, Al Qa'ida, Qaboun and Kalandia.
The United States played a dominant role in the liberation of Kuwait, and Kuwait supported the troops sent to fight with the coalition. Kuwait was also the main platform for Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, and the country hosted more than 13,500 American troops, many of whom were also in Kuwait City. Kuwait and the United States work together daily to monitor and enforce the security of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states and the United Nations.
The country's wealth made it an attractive destination for its more powerful neighbor Iraq, which invaded Kuwait in the 1991 Persian Gulf War, sparking a war between the two countries and the US, Britain and Saudi Arabia. Britain was particularly interested in Kuwait because of its proximity to the Persian Gulf, as it was close to British-controlled India. Kuwait City was captured within hours of the disputed oil fields in the Gulf of Aden, and Iraq quickly overran Kuwait, with the emir fleeing to Saudi Arabia. The Iraqis established a provincial government, but Kuwait's former ruler Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Sabah fled to Saudi Arabia and was captured within an hour in Kuwait City.
The annexation of Kuwait gave Iraq control of the oil fields in the Gulf of Aden and the Persian Gulf for the first time, and gave Kuwait access to its oil and gas reserves and a large part of its natural gas resources.
Kuwait is located in the Gulf of Aden and the Persian Gulf, about 1,500 km south - west of Kuwait City. The human occupation of the region around Kuwait City dates back to 3000 BC, when the Dilmun civilization had its center in neighboring Bahrain.
In the mid-17th century, many of its inhabitants migrated to the more hospitable shores of the Persian Gulf. Arab tribes that invaded Kuwait and its neighboring cities in the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Gulf led to their economic decline.
Most of Kuwait's old town has been replaced by a new city, Kuwait City, with a population of about 1.5 million people. Kuwait's parliament is located in the heart of the country, on the coast of the Persian Gulf, and the country's parliament houses the country's Supreme Court and a number of other government offices and ministries. Kuwait City is home to Kuwait International Airport, a major international airport and the largest airport in Kuwait.
