Hard to define, a little theme park. Nice theater, nice beach, beautiful assembly of buildings, but lacks of real life. I was in early April and there was not many people there neither in the morning at lunch time nor in the evening. It is still under construction I think a very pleasant place whenever life starts to happen there... More

This "cultural village" is another Doha mock up of reality . It is attractive and well situated on the water with some good restaurants, especially the fish place with the fish on display in the entrance. The amphitheater is appealing. However , much like the rest of Doha there is a sense of unreality in this ultra modernistic setting.

Our vist to Katar village was a middag affair, which meant there were hardly any visitors to the village. The amphitheatre is beautiful and we had an indulgence at La Chaclate . WE saw contemporary art on display that was due to auctioned off on the Southebey's action the next day. Well worth a visit.

Nice to go out with friends either to have a walk, dinner or attend an event. I went once to showroom of a photographer representing landscape pictures from all over the world... Dinned also once at Egyptian restaurant, and it was really nice..

I enjoyed occasional walks in Katara. A place where I get snacks is the famous Chapati and Karak. Very reasonable price.

Most events are free as well. The place is filled with great dining options, coffee shops, and even a... More
