Katara is the destination you cannot miss if you're in Doha, as it will is a melting pot of all culture of traditions from the eastern world. Restaurants, shops, promenade, everything is there for you and your family.

Nice place for spending an evening lounging in the open sheeshah cafes and plenty of posh theme resturants. Lots of photo opportunities specially with the traditional arab/tuskan mix of architecture.

The Village is host... More

I recommend to visit Katara Cultural Village in the evening and have dinner there as there are plenty of good restaurants and cafes where you can smoke shisha with different flavours.

Perfect walk, relaxing mood; and fun most especially when cultural activities are going on. Restaurants are of selection and great food as well. The concert hall is just magnificent! I just wish they have walking path from katara to the west bay - city center area or a shuttle bus will help decongest parking problems and lack of public transport.... More

A nice place to have a walk with friends and family, where children can play and run. You can find here good restaurants and nice architecture, museums and a cinema. There are plenty of parking slots so you can easily get here by car. During night, the lights of The Pearl can be seen in the water creating a beautiful... More
