If you are new to middle east, then you might be able to enjoy a little. .. fancy brand new old style buildings that serve no special purpose...no retail outlets..only some expensive restaurants. ..however, very good for photos and can be fun during festivals. ...

So many photo opportunities. From the quirky to the quaint; grandeur to drama. I do recommend a visit in the early morning and at dusk.

A lot of restaurants and a few cafes, all with a very relaxing atmosphere. The historical sightings are great, as well as Ramadan decoration. The walking area near the beach is free and absolutely fantastic.

A lot of restaurants and a few cafes, all with a very relaxing atmosphere. I love the small film camera shop as I have been waiting for such a shop like this here in Qatar. This is the second shop that opened but both of them are just new. The historical sightings are great and I love the idea that... More

There are plenty of things to do at Katara if you can tolerate a ton of people in one area at the same time. The views are wonderful. The water is clean. And the tea is to die for.

Katara was a truly unforgettable place! A lovely beach area, traditional tents, wide-ranging eateries, plenty of tea shops serving hot tea and parothas which has turned out to be a cultural fad among the locals, an amphitheater and with much more, this place has plenty on offer not just for tourists but also for Qatari residents. We were absolutely delighted... More

This was the second time I visited Katara and it was lovely both during the day and in the evening. There were lots to see and do but the area is huge and there could be more displays etc. The tea and chapati stalls were fantastic and so tasty. The restaurants here were amazing especially the Armenian one. I loved... More

This place is a must visit location if you are visiting Qatar. It is the perfect get away for the weekends. The events that the organizers bring in every now and then has made this place a frequent week end spot for our family.
