Then we came to Sharq Mall. Mehr was hungry and I needed a clean and close area as the sandstorm was still there though not strong. So decided to stop at Sharq Mall. Located on the Gulf Road, along the waterfront, it is one of the most popular malls in Kuwait.
There are good reasons for this. First of all, the mall is vast and has something for everyone. As it is right on the waterfront, it gives a spectacular view. It offers plenty of opportunities for the water-sports lovers. You can rent a jet ski or a little motor boat or go for a spin in the huge artificial lake, just behind the mall. It has a large food court and two good restaurants Bredz and Marina Café. The other great thing about this mall is that it has a branch of almost every known chain of stores in Kuwait and also, some independent stores not to be found anywhere else. There is also a movie theatre and amusement arcade for the little ones. Debenhams and Sultan Center are the anchor stores located at either ends of the mall. The view of Kuwait city and its skyline from the mall is picturesque and you can stand hours looking at it and its marina. There is a fish market, next to the mall and next to it is the old dhow harbour. Just along the side of the waterfront, walking track is constructed along with benches where you can sit and relax with your family and friends, enjoy the evening with a panoramic view of the sun setting behind the mall as the background. Though it was a sandstorm with strong wind, the waterfront was full with Kuwaiti people enjoying with their families.
We moved around, took few pictures and did some marketing in Sultan Center.
