It is an enjoyable experience visiting Souk Al-Mubarakiya for people who want to explore the old market of Kuwait. You can see verity of products from spices to clothes as well as food including meat and vegetables. It is something that every visitor to Kuwait must see.

I have been to all the malls here with all the well known chains and restaurants. This place is nothing like that mostly small family run shops with an amazing array of goods .

It's a great getaway at times, any time of the day, be it early morning, noon, afternoon, evenings ... a place that has bits of heritage ( not all of it ) and bits of new market style within... you can go solo, to walk around and shop , or dine ... or you can hang out with friends there... More
