Kuwait maps – Baladia

 map.jpg

This is a revelation to me; a colleague just pointed me to the Baladia’s website where they have a pretty cool map of Kuwait. It is quite interactive and you can search for areas by the governorate, blocks, street name, building number, etc. Not only that, you can provide it two addresses and it will get back to you with the shortest route (with complete step by step directions) and the direct distance as well. It also has PDA-friendly screenshots.

Another cool feature is that the map is so detailed that it has street names, electrical transformers, schools, hospitals and a lot of other landmarks. It is also pretty updated and even shows a school with its name that is still under construction near my area. Much more detailed than Google maps.

    Hi, great blog. I enjoyed reading your descriptions of Kuwait. Can you post the a link to the Baladia map you found? I tried baladia.com but was unsuccessful in finding it. I am searching for a nice map that details all the places you can visit in Kuwait. Thanks!

    Thanks Sabah for the info, it is very interesting and refreshing to read about the baladia. It would be more practical, user friendly, and also accessible if it was made as an app for iphone users, it will make it so much more user friendly and we could actually use it on the go.

    Regards,

      Rashed Albenali: I was taken by surprise myself. I’m sure it could be taken to the next level, but even this as it is, coming from the Baladia is already beyond expectations. 🙂
