Kuwait travel guide

Shopping Malls · Architectural Buildings · Shopping
Small in terms of land area but hugely rich in oil reserves, Kuwait sits in the middle of a region disputed by many would-be conquerors, each of whom has left an indelible mark over the ages. Expatriates make up nearly two thirds of Kuwait's population, drawn here by the thriving economy based almost entirely on petroleum exports. For casual travelers, a holiday in Kuwait means a chance to explore outstanding museums, sun-kissed beaches, and a lively restaurant scene serving authentic Arab cuisine. Less popular than some of the other oil-rich Gulf countries, Kuwait remains relatively unspoiled by mass tourism, though it boasts more than a fair share of extravagant shopping malls, picturesque marinas, and modern waterfront resorts.

Architectural Buildings · Shopping Malls · Parks
An unusual blend of a developing nation and the modern world, Malaysia ranks as one of the richest countries in Southeast Asia, its prosperity largely resting on thriving high-tech industries. Malaysia vacations remain a more affordable alternative to the expensive tourism in some neighboring countries. Take a trip to Malaysia to explore busy cities filled with colonial-era architecture, tranquil tea plantations supporting a large portion of the local population, and dozens of scattered islands happily evading the worst aspects of mass tourism. While there may be fewer visitors, there's no shortage of fine beaches, mangrove estuaries, and verdant rainforests filled with exotic wildlife.

Islands · Beaches · Kayaking & Canoeing
An indigenous province of Panama, Guna Yala (sometimes still referred to by its former name, San Blas) has remained true to the roots and traditions of the Guna community who call this coastal area home. The community became the first autonomous indigenous group in Latin America, refusing assimilation into the Panamanian state and steadfastly sticking to their principles and way of life. The area consists of hundreds of small islands and a long strip of coast on the mainland, with pristine, entirely unspoiled beaches all around. Tourism in Guna Yala is carefully managed to lessen the cultural and environmental impact of mass influxes, with permission from the customs office in the region's capital required before entry.
