Old Souq (2 hrs)
A traditional souq is always set up in sections. All shops that sell fruits are in one section. And there’s a section for meat, for clothes, carpets or even teapots. So just stroll around the market to find your section and buy your stuff. There are also a lot of food and coffee places here.
The opening hours may vary during summer and winter. Ask your hotel concierge for the best time to go there. You will find the old souq in the old centre between the Grand Mosque and the Liberation Tower.
Souq Sharq Waterfront (1-3 hrs)
On the Ground Floor and Second Floor there is a wide variety of retail outlets, ranging from well-known high-street shops to chic boutiques and designer stores. There are also numerous cafes and restaurants that offer a fantastic selection of food and drink for all the family to enjoy. And while having your drink, lunch or dinner you will get a great view on the marina and the skyline of Kuwait City.
It is located just outside the old centre at Arabian Gulf Street. Every taxi driver will know where it is.
Fish market (1 hr)
You can go there all day, as it is open from 7 am to 11 or 12 pm. It is located next to Souq Sharq Waterfront at Arabian Gulf Street. Any taxi driver will know that, just tell them: ‘New fish market Sharq’.
Marina mall (1-2 hrs)
Many shoe and clothes shops, and shops of most major brands can be found in this mall. There are also a lot of fast food options upstairs in the Marina Dome. That’s a great air-conditioned place to hang out during summer while it’s incredible hot outside. You can check the directory online.
