Kuwait Shopping


Salmiya is the central shopping centre in Kuwait city, boasting stunning malls completely justifying its main street’s nickname of ”Middle Eastern Champs Elysees.” Salmiya outlets offer few bargains in regards to Western-style fashion, even though Eastern-designed and made outfits can be found for good prices. The best buy in Kuwait is gold as it’s sold by weight, not by article, and retailers will make up your own pattern or design for a small premium. Traditional Bedouin arts and crafts, particularly woven items, make great souvenirs of a visit to Kuwait, with carpets, rugs, wall-hangings, and pottery favourites. For the Middle Eastern shopping experience of a lifetime, head to SouqMarbarakia, the biggest of Kuwait City’s traditional Arab markets.
