  • Oldest Souq in Kuwait, and a great attraction for tourists. A lot of old shops, textiles, perfumes, groceries, and also a famous restaurant. They also have a performance of old/traditional music each Friday (what people are saying). I recommend this place for families, groups, and for the individuals.

Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.
