You will see many of the Kuwait Water Towers as you drive around the country, but the tentative site is a group of three slender towers in Kuwait City known as Abraj Al-Kuwait. Aside from walking around the general area, I went up to the viewing sphere, from where you can see the various buildings under construction in Kuwait City. From the water towers, I walked along the waterfront to central Kuwait City, where I visited the fish market (one of the cleanest that I have visited) and Souk Al-Mubarakiya, by far the most interesting area of the capital (but the bar is very low). I ended my day drinking soft drinks at the world's only dry Hard Rock Cafe (it has since closed).
