KUWAIT: In spite of the urban development that Kuwait has witnessed throughout the years, Souq Al-Mubarakiya has stood the test of time as one of the most popular destinations in Kuwait for locals and tourists alike. The unique traditional market, located in the heart of Kuwait City, houses shops selling vegetables, groceries, clothes, antiques, etc, in addition to restaurants, traditional cafés, and many others. In addition to shopping, many people go to the market to attend activities that are often held in its main square, or simply take a trip down memory lane while walking in its long aisles. – Photos by Yasser Al-Zayyat
