The Colorful Arabian Souk
Souk" is an Arabic term for traditional market place. I took these photos back in February 2014 at the Qasr al Hosn Festival in Abu Dhabi. It is a famous annual festival among the Emirati people and tourists that located in the ancient Qasr al Hosn fort. This is the place where all the locals celebrate their authentic Emirati culture and tradition. It was very interesting to see the colorful, noisy and vibrant local bazaar where you can see variety of souvenirs, traditional clothes and pashmina, the Arabian perfumes, and many more. This is the place where you can also observe on how the Emirati people buying and selling their goods.
