We spend great times in this Souk. We stayed 4 days in Kuwait and we visited it three times. The basements are new shopping experience to us and you can get cheaper prices than the ground level. Bargaining is a must to get items with good prices too. The best time to go is after 4 pm for good weather.... More

The souq is nothing like what it used to be; it's just a very dirty swap meet with people selling things from dollar stores in China. Shamam restaurant is good, though.

The atmosphere and design of the place is that of the historical culture of Kuwait. So it is a good place to see what traditional food, clothes, perfumes, and houses... More

Here you can buy almost everything you can imagine. From gold to fruit, there is a little bit of everything at the Souk. We had dinner there at one of the restaurants... More
