Ask any local about things to do in Kuwait & among the suggestions they make would surely be shopping at Souk Al-Mubarakiya in Kuwait City. And even though we have started this post with the capital city, so iconic is this bazaar that it is worth mentioning separately! One of the oldest markets of the country, this was the site of trade before the gulf nation discovered oil. Today, it sells everything that you can think of buying as a souvenir for a loved one—dates, dried fruit, olives, jewelry & even Made-In-China products! Over time, modern buildings have been added to this historical area.
