Shopping in Kuwait

As far as shopping is concerned, Kuwait has everything to offer visitors, from traditional Arabic markets to the world’s most exclusive stores and brands. Get yourself acquainted with local products at the Fahaheel Friday Market and the Jahra Friday Market – they feature everything from clothes and books to spices and antiques. The district of Salmiyyah is also a good place to go, as it is dotted with malls and quaint shops. The downtown Sharq Souk Mall is one of the largest ones in the city. This area is also flooded with several gold souks, where you will find authentic jewellery of Middle Eastern design. For those who have a fondness for designer labels and celebrated brands, Salhia Complex is the place – but you can expect prices to be high.

Visit the Sadu House beside the National Museum to see locally made rugs, wall hangings and so forth. Unlike other parts of the Middle East, bargaining is not very common, so see what other customers are doing before offering less than the price marked.

If you want to squeeze in a little bit of shopping, some entertainment, and a meal or two, Al Mohalab Centre on Muthana Street is the ultimate multi-purpose venue – you can opt for anything from a movie to a massage, and this one stop will take care of it for you. Branches of Sultan Center scattered in the city are also zones where you will find almost anything you desire. Try the three-level Al Othman Center in Hawalli for that shop-till-you-drop experience.

Shopping hours are generally Saturday-Thursday, 9 am-1 pm, and 4:30-9 pm, Friday hours vary. Shopping malls generally open daily 10 am-10 pm.
