I arrived when the stores were still closed and the streets were very clean and pretty. Seeing the stores open is very interesting and people arriving to shop. There are cheap and expensive options - some perfume stores are actually chinese products, not regional. In my opinion, it was especially interesting because I could see kuwaiti people walking and shopping.

Mubarakiya is a very nice place to have a walk and learn more about Kuwait's culture by eating kuwaiti food and have a lovely experience shopping in the tiny old shops. Wonderful weather from October till April. Sumo is a great place to dine in.

A great place to visit for shopping and witnessing Kuwait's historical features. They sell traditional Arab clothing, perfumes, woods and has a huge arabian food court. You should not miss their kabab stuff. Those are rare gems kababs lol

One of the oldest traditional markets in Kuwait City, good prices and good restaurants specially sea food, a place you shouldn't miss when you visit Kuwait. and I recommend winter time in February on the national day of Kuwait 25th.

The moment you enter the souk, the traditional fragrance will welcome you. This place itself a Kuwait within Kuwait. There is absolutely nothing which is not available here- starting from gift shops, clothing, traditional floor mats, fresh vegetables, fruits- everything. All the shop keepers are cordial enough. At times, you will find live Arabian music shows too. The Souk designed... More
