Check out this fantastic drone video of a cargo ship heading into the harbor of Kuwait City, compliments of top AirVuz contributor The Drone Life PK.  He filmed the Hong Kong flagged Yangtze Ambition bulk carrier sailing into the Shuwaikh Port, which is just to the southwest of the city center.  It's the primary import port for this oil-rich (but otherwise resource-poor) emirate.   The Shuwaikh port is part of an industrial complex that includes many of the country's manufacturing facilities.

Check out this stunning nighttime dronelapse of Kuwait City, compliments of contributor mungkey.  Situated near the middle of the country's Persian Gulf coastline, Kuwait City is home to about half the country's population.  The video includes some epic shots of the ball-shaped Kuwait Towers as well as Al Hamra Tower, the 80 floor architectural masterpiece which is the country's tallest skyscraper, standing 414 meters (about 1.35k ft.).  This video was picked as a DVOW winner in July, 2019.

Kuwait City's Al Hamra Tower is one of the architectural wonders of the world.  Completed in the 2011, it utilizes a revolutionary design made of curved concrete.  The 80 story building has a roof height of 368 meters (just over 1.2k ft.) and an architectural height of 414 meters or about 1.35k ft, easily the tallest building in this oil-rich Middle Eastern country.  Seen here in this excellent drone video by The Drone Life PK, its "wrapped facade" cuts the amount of sunlight hitting its south face, reducing cooling costs.

The Drone Life PK

The most recognizable landmark in the small Persian Gulf country of Kuwait is the Kuwait Towers, a group of three water towers which stand on a small peninsula in the country's namesake capital city.  The main tower is distinguished by its two giant spheres - the lower is a water storage tank, while the upper sphere holds a restaurant and observation deck. Seen here in this DVOW nominated film by The Drone Life PK, the Kuwait Towers were built in the 1970's and were recently re-opened to the public after a multi-year maintenance and renovation project.

One of the more notable landmarks of Kuwait City is Liberation Tower, a communication tower which stands 372 meters (over 1.2k ft.) above the streets of the Kuwaiti capital.  The tower was under construction when Kuwait was invaded by Iraq in 1990, eventually triggering the first Iraq war.  The tower was completed in 1993, and its name was changed to commemorate the liberation of the country by UN forces during the conflict.  Contributor Ishqification crated this rather amazing drone video of the tower.

In this drone video, contributor and pilot sjalibrahim does a fabulous job of aerially filming a Kuwaiti phenomenon not known to many: its thriving bird population.  While this oil-rich country on the Persian Gulf is mostly desert, a small corner of the country is highly conducive to bird life.  That puts the country in the position of being home of some of the most important bird sanctuary areas in the entire Middle East.  Watch the video and you'll see a Kuwaiti wetlands you likely never knew existed.

Kuwait City is the capital of Kuwait in the Arabian Gulf. The heart of the city is the Grand Mosque, which is known for its vast interior and chadeliered dome. However, the rest of the city is modern, vibrant, and sky-high as seen in this nighttime, hyper lapse drone video by pilot mungkey. He took his DJI Mavic 2 Pro out over the city to create this glittering, stunning compilation video that features some of the more famous skyscrapers like Al Hamra Tower, Al-Rayah Tower, and Kipco Tower by drone.

Most of Kuwait's human population of about four million lives around Kuwait Bay, a major inlet of the northern Persian Gulf.  The extensive lagoons and wetlands here also support a large bird population.  While some species are native, a larger number use the nutrient rich waters here to sustain some of the most important migratory flows in Eurasia.  In this drone video by top contributor The Drone Life PK, you'll get an aerial view of the bird population near Shuwaikh Port, southwest of Kuwait city on the eastern side of the bay.

Sjalibrahim created this amazing drone video of Kuwait City, the capital of the eponymous country.  The city is situated more or less in the middle of the country's coastline on the Persian Gulf, and is home to 6 in 10 Kuwaitis.  In the video, you'll see footage of the highly iconic Al Hamra Tower, one of the Middle East's tallest building at over 400 meters (over 1.3k ft.), as well as the city's highly distinctive white and blue water towers, vital for this city of 2.5 million surrounded by desert.
