Fahaheel is a suburb of Kuwait, about 25 miles south of Kuwait City. It is a city of about 200,000 which is the end of the megalopolis which stretches south from Kuwait City. There is a large oil refinery there. The many shops and stores there range from the very modern to the very traditional. Walking the streets you encounter all sorts of native dress and nationalities. It is the home to many expatriate workers, Afghans, Sri Lankans, Pakistani, Bangledeshi and Egyptians. There is also a large Kuwaiti beduin population there. It is a great place to shop.
