Shopping Mall Shopping
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.

  • Kuveytin we're here to wander once more, this traditional market. This is a great time to spend nice and a big marketplace. This is where you will find your every need. Food for every taste and budget, there are places to see. But it's very, very good and special for a fancier experience.

  • One of my favorite places in Kuwait. I don't like malls or shopping for that matter, so they're outdated stores and restaurants is no issue for me. I just like the way it was built and the area and era it was built in.
  • Parking is usually a nightmare but it's a small mall that has all the essentials and a nice atmosphere right on the gulf with beautiful views. I do wish there were better food options, though.
  • Unique shopping mall. Don't miss the awesome clock in the center of the mall. It's best to check it out before 11 o'clock.
  • Its a nice mall next to the sea not very big but fun and awesome location good shops and restaurants
  • One of my Favourite place in kuwait. 100% recommended for family and couples to enjoy their evening

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.
