Al Othaim Mall

As one of the newer malls in the city, Al Othaim gathers a huge array of shops, restaurants and entertainment options under one roof in modern facilities. Shoppers can find everything from brand name chain stores to unique boutiques, accessories, home goods, electronics, and much more.


Much of Saudi Arabia's social life revolves around shopping. It is very common for families to visit one of the many large shopping centres and spend the whole day browsing, enjoying some refreshments, and escaping the intense heat in the air-conditioned malls. But be sure to head to some of the smaller markets for more traditional and authentic shopping experiences, as well. The date market is an absolute must.
