Souk Sharq, Kuwait City

#5 of 36 in Shopping in Kuwait
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.

  • Great place with a lot of nostalgia. It has a good selection of shops and restaurants, both upmarket and fast food. The marina is a lovely place to walk and have a coffee when the weather is nice. Also you can visit the fresh fish market next to it which is a nice local experience. Sultan centre is also in the mall for all other items you might need.
  • This is one of the oldest shopping malls in Kuwait. With a nice walkway beside the sea, it would be always to take a little walk with your family and enjoy the view. The walk way on the other side of the mall with the small marina is a nice play for children who want to ride bikes. the mall has a nice food court and a considerable number of coffee shops. The mall also has Sultan center for household items shopping, and a variety of shops that would make shopping there for clothes and other items a good idea. The mall has a big parking lot that would be crowded in the holiday, but if you go a bit early or mid-week you will for sure find a spot. One of Kuwait's biggest fish markets is located there, from which you would be able to get whatever you may want of sea food.
  • Amazing experience from all perspectives... worth visiting this souq and keep going... each time you'd find something new and enjoyable
  • Good place for purchase any type of House hold materials. Also Ready foods to eat. Every time Enjoy & purchase Varity of things.
  • The good thing is that it has a Marina and a Good food court (fast food and couple of others like TGI or Chillies). Ample parking. Also has a Theater.
