Katara Cultural Village is of the masterpieces in Doha, Qatar. This is really a wonderful place to visit during Eid holidays along with family particularly for Fire shows. Located on the way to "The Pearl Qatar" from West bay (Rainbow R/A earlier).

Well worth a visit. Lots of shops and resaurants and a great beach overlooking Doha. There are also places to learn more about Qatar. It is a little way out of Doha to reach but worth the journey.

Apart from the access challenges of getting in and out of Katara, the facilities and services on offer are good. a wide range of family friendly activities, from workshops to theatrical performances, to concerts, to live cultural shows from different countries etc are all available at certain times of the year. The biggest bugbear I have about this venue is... More

Very well built compound resembling an old local village. The most of the cultural institutions of Doha are here, and a beautiful open air theatre. Also, 3 very nice restaurants and some cafes. Place to visit in Doha.

As beautiful as it is there really isn't much there. All the restaurants are overpriced. It's a great place if you'd like to go for a walk but that's pretty much it. Not much to do there unless they have a fair or an exhibition of some sort as they do that frequently.

Totally LOVE this place. It has so much style and class. Just the spaciousness of it. It is a place to stroll. To sit down and feel and contemplate if you so wish. Sit down and create, think, write..do nothing. Just be. The quietness in that vastness if offers most of the time. The beautiful old style marble 'arena' is... More

I was taken to Katara by my friend on my short visit to Qatar, if you are looking for photographic Arab culture and have fun with cheap delicious tea with chapatti rolls (bread rolls), this is a must to visit, very different and better to visit in winter because it gets humid in summer.
