#Samer on May 25, 2013 :
I lived in Kuwait for nearly a year and it's a nice place if you have a large network of friends otherwise it's really boring.
Now as far as living expenses, Kuwait is moderate in prices. Gas is very cheap I drove a 2012 Honda Accord 2.5KD to fill up the tank :)
Food and drink is relatively cheap and cigarettes are cheap if you smoke.
cars and trucks are priced ok, you have too look around a lot before buying.
Apartment rent is a bit pricey in good areas (Salmyia, Mangaf, Salwa) 350kd+ so if you work at a company make sure they pay most, if not all, your rent.

Overall, if you have a job that pays well you'll be able to live excellent and save a decent chunk of money in Kuwait.
