The 'city' was built as a shooting location for 'Ayal Al Theeb' (Sons of The Wolf), a Qatari soap opera that first aired in 2000. Its since been maintained to retain its rustic charm and been opened for free for visitors. The drive out there is a bumpy one on unpaved desert road but well worth it in the end.... More

Film City, eroded sand hills and East West sculptures worth fighting through west Doha to get to. Drive to just before Durban is dull but rough track to Film City pleasant. Half a day unless you also want to go to the coast which is OK but with no shade at all.

Must visit this place if you are into photography! The landscape it just beautiful and there's not much you have to do, just clic your camera bottom and the picture will look amazing. You need a land cruiser to enter this place as there's lots of bumps in the sand. DONT GO DURING SUMMER TIME! I felt like in a... More

Its not marked at all how best to get there. Google Maps take you the long and very rough way. There is nothing to see! An abandoned film set with not even any shots from the movie! If you had the chance to stay at home and do nothing or see this, stay home.

This is a bit of challenge to find. There is a 'road' through the desert but often times difficult to follow. But it the drive to get there and finding it is an adventure. Can drive a regular car in the dry season.

It is very difficult to reach the film city because there are no sign boards or route maps available. The destination itself is like ruins. There is not much maintenance done. The gate keeper will charge you as per his desire to enter the destination

getting to film city and the close by mystery village was quite a task... google maps shows you the wrong directions...the correct way to get there is to reach zekreet village and then drive into the desert following some boards which leads you all the way up to film city and then to mystery village... there is nothing much once...
