The academic year is about to end and so is vacation about to start. Its summer and so summer camps, visit to exotic locations with parents and friends and to dear India will start. For those in Kuwait, you need not feel dis-spirited and pensive. There are lot of places in Kuwait where you can go during the summer holidays and enjoy with your family and friends.

My daughter is 2 1/2years old and so sending her to summer camp doesn't arise. But my friends, whose kids who have started going to school are really going crazy as to what to do with the kids this summer. So I have made a list that I hope will help them and you out, if you have kids.

There might be many more places that I might not know. If you know them include it as comment. Thanx.
