Things to do in Kuwait with the AWARE Center: Camel Races, Kuwaiti Traditional Food & Dishdasha Night and The Red Fort Tour


The Aware Center is listed on our blog link section but I often forget to check out their website.  They have some interesting upcoming events that you should be sure not to miss.  They also offer Arabic classes if you would like to learn some Kuwaiti Arabic while you are in Kuwait.

 

RED FORT TOUR

19 Jan 2013, 9:00 a.m.

 

The Red Fort in Jahra is a desolated palace. Built almost 100 years ago it was the desert Palace of the Al-Sabah family. It is also the site of an historical battle in Kuwait's history. Join AWARE’s tour of this desolate fort to gain an insight into Kuwait's history. Bus & refreshments provided by AWARE. Fee: KD 3 per person Meeting at the AWARE Center: 9am. Return Departure: 1pm. Advance reservations are required at joumana@aware.com.kw.

 

CAMEL RACES TOUR

26 Jan 2013, 11:00 a.m.

 

The Kuwait Camel Racing Club opens its season annually from November through April. This rare sport is a 'must-see' for the western expatriate audience. Many owners of the camels import distinctive racing camels & hire coaches to ensure a strong start in this serious competition. With robots mounted on the camels, this is a sport that appeals to all! Join AWARE for an outing we think will add new meaning to your experience of 'living in Kuwait'. After the excitement of watching them cross the finish line you will enjoy a buffet at a nearby desert farm. Departure from AWARE: 11am. Return Departure: 6pm. Fee: KD 6 (AWARE Members), KD 8 (Non-Members) & KD 4 (Children) Limited Seats! Registration is through Cash Payments only.
