Souk Sharq, Kuwait City

3.8
#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. Our Kuwait City driving holiday planning website makes visiting Souk Sharq and other Kuwait City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 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.
  • The Mall has nice access to the water front and marina. Many shops, restaurants, cafes inside and outside. The Traditional fish, froot and vegetable market is next to the mall within a short walking distance. Also a nice beach walkway and a place for fishing behind the parking area. An interesting large water clock is at the center of the mall.
  • Excellent idea and equally well implemented. Great view, most of the things you look for in a mall: variety of products, supermarket, coffee shops, serene quiet atmosphere, etc. You can even rent a boat for a small trip in the sea (within the proximity of the mall). The staff is very efficient, helpful and kind. Ideal place for a quiet stroll by the sea. The fish market is also close by. They even have events for kids occassionally. Ample parking. You can even get exotic items at some of the stores.....like canned oysters, crabs, etc. exotic bakery items at TSC. The only downsides are the crowd at times ruins the mood.
  • This is one of the most memorable places in Kuwait, despite being one of the older malls in Kuwait, it remains to maintain a sense of timelessness and excitement as it did since the day of it's opening. I recommend the mornings for going to this place as it is the least busy and you get to enjoy the architecture of the place whether you're inside the mall or outside taking a stroll by the waterfront, or by the harbor side.
  • A small mall with a limited number of shops. Good selection of coffee shops a d a few restaurants. Sultan has a well stocked supermarket. Debenhams is the only department store. The view from the coffee shops over the marina is nice.
