Experience Kuwait authentic souk. Get away ftom the glitsy malls and find your way to the old souk in the centre of the city. Everything is sold here and the gold souk is right next door. Good experience and safe.

There's something for just about every shopper. There is an extensive selection of butchers as well as the usual perfume and clothing shops. The common dining area serves good food from several restaurants at reasonable prices.
