Cost of living in Kuwait (Kuwait City)

Hi everyone,

We (Dutch-Turkish couple with 3-yr old boy) are planning to move to Kuwait in Protected content time. Would really appreciate some information on the following:

1. Housing are & cost.Where are the attractive areas and what kind of housing is there?
(I've seen in earlier posts Salmiya is a popular area for Western expats, with prices for 3 bedroom places around Protected content . Is this correct?)

2. Daycare for our son. Any tips for a good daycare, and what does it cost?

3. Nanny/housecleaner. How to find one and what does it cost?

4. General cost of goods. Are there many international retail chains and are they priced expensive (I know Qatar and Dubai cost of living, is it comparable?)

Thanks very much for your help!
Martijn.
