I never fail to visit when in Doha,each time it is comfortably the same but always something new too. This time it was the new underground car park with the sous terrain walk through to the souk and shops, brilliant . A visit to the pearl shops is a must, YARA JEWELLERY is my favourite.

The strees at the Souq are narrow with small shops selling all kind of souvenirs and articles and there are several restaurants serving from traditional arab food to... More

Impressive environment, memorable antique collection, local treats of shawarma all makes it a MUST-SEE destination for all. Henna designing by traditional methods will not go unnoticed.

This is an amazing place that has to be on the must visit list of every visitor to Qatar. Just a few days back, they have opened the new underground parking facility for @2000 cars...so no more parking nightmares. Just visit, walk around, enjoy ur coffee or ur lunch/dinner.
