KUWAIT CITY : Kuwait ranks last in the Gulf and 10th globally on the most popular travel destinations for Muslim in 2018, according to Global Muslim Travel Index 2018 issued by Mastercard-Crescentrating company.

Kuwait recorded 60.5 points in the index that covers a total of 130 countries, while the UAE topped the chart in the region, and Malaysia retained its first position globally with 80.6 points, followed by Indonesia. Turkey came third, followed by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Morocco and Kuwait.
