Kuwait's deeply rooted traditions and culture make this small Gulf nation rather unique. Whether you're here for business or leisure, you'll have plenty of opportunities to experience the country's culture in its capital, Kuwait. Head to Souq Al Mubarakiya for an authentic shopping experience. One of the country's oldest markets, the souq offers antiques, traditional clothing, Persian carpets and other authentic items to take back as mementos of your visit. A more modern shopping experience can be found at The Avenues. This complex is the largest in Kuwait with over 200 shops as well as several indoor and outdoor cafes and a cinema.
