I visited thrice with my friends as well as family. While You enter you will feel like you are in old BUT very beautiful Kuwait. Cleanliness, Eye catching lightings, deem lamps make it beautiful. You can shop almost everything in clothing, make up items, toys, and eatables. Underground parking is available in busy area. Kids can enjoy in small fountain area beside open family restaurant adjacent to Mosque. For singles, there is other restaurant inside. I liked food specially Kuwaiti grills. Don't forget to bargain!! Best place to by Local dishdasa...

The best time to go there is around 4 P.M. to 7 P.M. so that you can accomplish a lot.
We went there around 10 AM, most of the store are not open yet - so we took a lot of photos for souvenir and heritage appreciation.

Since I was not satisfied I went back around 4 P.M. to buy my usual souvenirs for my closest friends. make sure to look around and ask for prices before you purchase.

fridge magnets - costs 1 KD to 3 KD depends on quality. I bought the rubberized ones which cost 2.5 KD and the porcelain one 1.5 KD.

Porcelain plates - I bought mine for only 1 KD. Some stalls sold around 4 KD to 5 KD

Key chains - depends on quality. the heavy metal ones and good quality costs 1 KD. But some stalls have this low quality key chains cost .150 KD .

these souvenir shops are located near fish market. try to look deeper part of the souq.
