reflectionology ~ Al Kout Mall - Kuwait ~ HDR

Newer Older

taken before the opening hours :: really happy because they just finished cleaning the waters.

Al Kout – the Fahaheel Waterfront Project is an iconic development which houses an active complex with educational, cultural and entertainment facilities making it a symbol of Kuwait’s meteoric progress and embodying the vision and magnitude of the project. It also offers a state-of-the-art marina available for selective owners catering to over 140 private boats and yachts. The project encompasses key objectives focused on developing the Fahaheel vicinity and adds a fresh breath of life into traditional activities on the seafront such as fishing. It has also played a pivotal role in boosting activities at the meat, vegetable and fish markets as well as creating a top quality natural environment for shopping, dining and leisure.
