I’m very enthusiastic entering and walking around......, Followed the stone road or alleyways that stretched from the end at the end.. with each side in filled people who relaxed in the restaurant, antiques shops, or only walking and sightseeing...

Old buildings has been finished in renovation and reconstruction.. brought my illusion to the 1001 nights tales.. in Arabian world stories.. moreover the atmosphere at night was beautiful..

Souq waqif mean "Standing Market"...., is a magical place that entices visitors with its extraordinary cultural heritage. It is made up of narrow winding streets that reveals matchless architectural treasures created by countless generations of artists. with its high walls small windows and wooden portals, the quarter is imbued with a charm all of its own.
( The quotation from the article Muhamed Ali Abdullah )
