Any holiday to Al Jahra would not be complete without a trip to its neighbouring city Kuwait.
There is plenty to do and see in this bustling metropolis, which caters for adventurous travellers of all tastes.
If you are staying at the Copthorne Al Jahra Kuwait, you will find you are just a 30 minute drive from the centre of Kuwait City - where many of the most interesting tourist attractions can be found.
One of the top attractions for tourists - particularly those on a fleeting visit to the city - is the Kuwait Zoo.
Opened just ten years ago, the zoo has a host of exotic animals from across the world and is so popular among the locals that people visit time and again.
It is located just off Airport Road and is open every day except Saturday.
During the summer months, the zoo is open from 8.00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m. local time. Rather than a siesta, the closure during the middle of the day is so tourists can avoid the oppressive heat.
In the winter, the animal park is open all day, 8.00 a.m. until 8.00 p.m.
