Expats living in Kuwait have expressed their disappointment at the Hala February shopping festival, with many claiming that it is "not worth the wait".
Speaking to Kuwait Times, Mercy, a Filipina expat who has lived in the Middle Eastern country for more than a decade, said there is no marked difference in the price of goods during the festival, which runs until February 23rd.
"I can shop anytime in the malls and anywhere in Kuwait and enjoy huge discounts. I don’t know what the Hala festival is for. I cannot understand," she declared.
Meanwhile, Indian expat Margaret said the organisers should focus on creating a vibrant, exciting experience that would inspire shoppers to spend their cash.
The Kuwait Times has also recently alerted expats to iniquities in the country’s healthcare system, with nationals afforded a more comprehensive level of care than expat workers.
Such limited access may encourage employees to obtain expat medical insurance as a priority.
