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.

  • As it is no changes Souk Sharq only sales no activities no promotions best thing is the location and the Sultan Center in it 
  • This is a small but up-scale feeling mall right on the water. There is a marina as well as a conventional parking lot for those who want to arrive by yacht. I had a lot of fun watching the yachts and ...  more »
  • 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.

  • 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.
