Souk Sharq, Kuwait City
(3.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Set on a seafront promenade, Souk Sharq started as an open-air market and went on to become one of the major shopping malls in Kuwait. The mall offers a combination of international chain stores, classy boutiques, and trendy designer shops, as well as restaurants and cafes with a sea view. Entertainment options include movie theaters, an amusement park, and a central plaza that features live performances and exhibits. The intriguing 5.5 m (18 ft) tall structure on the ground floor, serving as a water-clock and a thermometer, was designed by French physicist Professor Bernard Gitton.

  • Kuwait is fairly famous and newish Mall. But what I'm selling is fairly ordinary, Japan ion is not much. Look at aspects of the Arab-like cream is bring photos to take and Yacht Harbor.

  • Eastern market was built in a fantastic location, overlooking the Bay and overlooking the port hand yachts from the other side. Sultan Center has shopping beginning from fruits and vegetables to housewares and toys and electrical appliances and lots and lots and is laid out on the ground floor and first and restaurant overlooking the Sultan port for breakfast and الغداءو dinner. And there is a large hall on the first floor for all the famous restaurants and featuring the famous Debenhams market on the ground floor and first. There are cinemas showing the latest movies. Garments and accessories have several stores at the Mall of America elegance and telecommunications companies with branches. Parking is free. And available and covered. Toilets available and very clean. You can walk inside or outside the Mall, especially on the Boardwalk overlooking the harbor. Regulates the Mall in national holidays and various events attended by the masses. The Mall is great for shopping and strolling together. If you like my honors and press for echo to our more profitable Mall with your comment.

  • a cool plcae in Kuwait. have a very nice walk way beside the sea. clean place with nice sitting arrangements. a big shopping mall where us get everything. very bright and coolurful at night. in week end time it remains very busy. has a big parking place and located in road no 25 and easy to reach. well has a nice fish market as well near by.
  • Very good shopping mall with some nice food court and sea views it also have a cinema and small kids park
  • Nice mall if you go in the morning, less crowded. There isn't much variety of restaurants like the 360 mall or the Avenues. Mostly if you have something you want to buy and you want to avoid the crowd.. Try coming before 4 pm.
  • one of the few places where you may have gone to do shopping but stepped out side and ended up doing site seeing. or the other way around. crowed on the weekends (parking problems) good theater. and family friendly.
  • Old fashioned mall. No comparison with the new malls in country. But in a nice weather, u can find a gud view from there aince its built around sea. It also has a fish market.
