  • A typical shopping complex from the 70s era. Lots of stores including jewelers, fabric shops, and clothing boutiques. Also, it has a big multi story parking lot, and corporate offices as well. Ideal to park for the nearby old souks area.
  • Beautifully designed shopping mall right by the sea where you can also walk and enjoy the gulf view.
  • Most liked place for Locals. A very good shopping point for jewelries as most brands showrooms and shops are present at Mezzanine floor. Very accessible place as opposite of this building, people can flind public parking building and Gulf Bank and surrounded by several food outlet..paradise for foodies. Its all about the place in the heart of city.
  • Its good place for foodies.. sum good restaurants here...but Gia restaurant serve mouth watering food with awesome service....
  • One of the few malls where male apparel is sold. Nothing too special, though!

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.
