The Avenues, Kuwait City

4.6
#1 of 93 in Things to do in Kuwait
The biggest shopping mall in the country and a favorite leisure destination for tourists and locals alike, The Avenues houses over 800 shops, including a vast selection of luxury brands. The interior features six thematic sections drawing inspiration from the surrounding dessert--blue skies and the sun on the one hand, and European and local storefronts on the other hand. The glass roof lets in natural light, which gives you the feel of an open-air space, while protecting you from the heat and the scorching sun. Be sure to check out art exhibits and trendy restaurants in SoKu, which is the section of the mall designed for hip teenagers and youngsters (that's clearly inspired by New York City's SoHo neighborhood).

    The mall is huge, has a lot of shops and restaurants. It could be comparable with an indoor neighbourhood with AC.  more »

    If you are in Kuwait it's the must visit places. One of the biggest malls with unique architecture. Good for shopping if you care about brands. And almost all food outlets are here.

    Always tge best in Kuwait. We had a lively time as always. Restaurants are very unique and the fun place for the kids are very amusing

    Yes it's a big mall but at the end of the day it's a mall not a tourist attraction. Lots of duplicate stores and the majority of the restaurants are well known chains no local flavors what so ever. Lots of high end and fast fashion stores but very limited in terms of unique shops or contemporary designers. It does have ample parking but gets extremely busy especially on the weekends.

    One stop mall for everything that you need. From IKEA to groceries, clothes, high to low end fashion. Everything is here. Plus, valet parking, and a large free parking area for everyone. Easily accessible.

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.
