Souk Al-Mubarakiya Kuwait through my phone

Saturday, November 11, 2017

It was the night before we left for Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we decided to visit Souk Al-Mubarakiya. Sadly, my phone didn't do any justice of how nice this place is. I felt a bit sad that I left my camera at our unit.
Souk Al-Mubarakiya (or Souq Al-Mubarakiya?) is considered the oldest, if not, one of the oldest souqs (open-air market) in Kuwait. Tradition is what Souk Al-Mubarakiya has to offer. It is situated in the heart of Kuwait City and any cab driver and locals now where this place is exactly situated. It is filled with little booths selling everything from spices, meat, fruits and veg, to clothes, pots and pans, and fake designer bags. Restaurants which serves Arab dishes are also present.

Walking to the Souk Al-Mubarakiya. The view is lovely and we can see the tower full of lights from afar. We had to walk quite far because parking was just difficult but it's definitely worth it.
While walking I was thinking it would be lovely to take photos there during day time because lighting 'ya know. HAHA.

The place were flooded by tons of people that night especially the restaurants. I even saw a couple of chinese or korean travelers, I was really surprised since Kuwait is not that tourist-y. 
I must say Kuwaitis are very patriotic, flags everywhere and the lights (even the buildings) are in colors green, red and white - the colors of their flag. As in grabe! I wish we Filipinos are like that or will do that too, sadly patriotism is slowly dying in our country. Even during our independence day, I barely see flags on streets and lights with the color of flag in buildings.

I was drooling for those tea sets. What can I say, I'm a sucker for tea cups and pastels.

Apparently, OOTD shots ala blogger style are not that common in Kuwait, if i'm not mistaken. A lot of people were staring at me while hubby is taking my picture. But that didn't stop me!
