Souq Almubarkiah, Kuwait

Two weeks ago, I went to Kuwait for the first time to attend a design conference and I stayed few more days to checkout what the city got to offer. One of the places I loved when I visited was Souq AlMubarkiah. It is the oldest market in Kuwait City and it was the trade centre of the city before the discovery of oil. It has been rebuilt and renovated through the years and lost a lot of the original structure, but it's still very charming. It was established by the 7th Kuwaiti ruler, Mubark AlSabah hence the name. It is a lovely market with a really nice design and I loved all the lights. They sell lots of things there from fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish to homeware and fashion. There are also a number of restaurants there from the fancy ones to the modest ones that serve delicious smelling and looking food. Take a look at the photos below to get an idea of the products and how it all looks.
