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 most beautiful malls in Kuwait architecturally. Unlike most other malls in Kuwait it actually has an architectural theme and isn’t just a bunch of shops lined up next together. Even though it’s pretty old compared to other malls it has aged gracefully. The only reason it doesn’t get five stars is because they closed down my favorite Cinescape location.
The Souk Sharq is a major shopping center in Kuwait City. The center began as a traditional souq but as the city has expanded, the center was also modernized. Souk Sharq was the first mall to create major shopping attraction along the Gulf road. It has plenty of parkings and shops on two floors with international brands of fashion, cosmetics, shoes, bags, pharmaceuticals, watches, sport, electronics and department stores. There are varieties of Resturant’s . There is a children’s play area, the front of the Souk is lined with palm trees which faces marina island with a beautiful view in the evening. Kuwait fish market is also located right next to the Souk. This is one of the best places to visit with family and especially children will enjoy.
