“Interesting view from the distance...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

....but up close it looks run down up close and the towers and the area needs a restauration. When coming to Kuwait this is a must see but don't set your expectations to high.

“Decorated water tanks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I'm not sure if you can really call these towers tourist attractions, they're just water tanks decorated with stones and tiles to make them look fancy.
If you're passing by, take a look but it's not worth going out of your way to see.

“Not much of a tower really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is a known landmark of Kuwait since there i nothing better than this to showcase this structure can be seen on probably all advertisements of Kuwait. It is nothing but a couple of water tanks placed high up and decorated with stones. There is an entry fee and you get to see a 360 degree view of the city on a clear day or night.There is a restaurant up there but no great shakes and a souvenir shop which is obviously expensive.

“Nothing there and nothing special in general”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

As it is the symbol of Kuwait a visitor should probably see the towers, but as soon as you see them from distance as a panoramic view, you don't have to go there as there is literary nothing. The beach around is dirty and no restaurants or places to relax. Even there wasnt a toilet available in the near 1-2 miles… at least not a functioning one.

“You Must Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

A famous part of Kuwait, another spot to check off your touristy checklist in Kuwait. Go at night to get a great night-time view of the city. I would highly recommend having breakfast,lunch, dinner or even a snack at the top of the towers. The restaurant has classy and great food. I recommend everyone to go at sunset when there are clearer sky.
