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.

  • The mall has a nice rustic design which gives you a old time feel. They have a variety of stores and have activities every weekend. Its location next to the sea is a nice place to sit and relax  more »
  • Less crowded than the newer malls, Souq Sharq is a great place to get your main shopping done. True they have lost some of the main brands but Shaya remains with some of its major brands. Food choices...  more »

  • 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 I don't like malls or shopping for that matter, so they're outdated stores and restaurants is no issue for me.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.
  • 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.
  • Surrounded by water and with its own marina, this is a great place to unwind by taking a walk along the marina boardwalk or along the shoreline, with wonderful scenes to take in, weather permitting of course. There are benches placed all around for those that would like to take a break after a long walk perhaps or to just take in the beautiful sunsets that can be viewed from here. It also has a children's play area for the kids to enjoy. The mall has a Sultan Centre department store located within for your grocery and daily shopping needs. There are quite a few popular retail brands as well and a huge food court with a variety of choices. Another major plus is that it doesn't get as crowded as a lot of other malls in Kuwait but finding parking here over the weekends can be quite a challenge.
  • Not as busy as more popular malls. Cinema renovated. Good selection of restaurants.
  • Great mall facing the sea with wide range of different items from clothes, shoes, women, kids, housewares, restaurants, cafés, cinema and more under one roof.
