A realy nice place but don't try to early. Start time about 4:00 PM. You can drink a mint tea (black tea with mint leaf) and eat some special cake (kanafeh). I like it to sit for tea mint and check the moving people with his different clothes and so on. The shops inside the souq also colorful and you... More

This is my favorite place in Doha! There is something for everyone! Food, clothing, jewelry, etc. I love sitting out, having coffee and people watching. It is cultural, fun and exciting.

This is a MUST to visit when in Doha. The streets are cobbled and the passages are lined with the most interesting shops, There is a wide range of gifts and clothes to purchase. Beautiful scarves too.Sitting at the outdoor cafes and restaurants is a beautiful way to spend and evening dining and relaxing

The souk is frequented by both residents and tourists alike and is a very comfortable place to get an insight to life in Doha before the discovery of oil and haute couture. The souk is still a working market which adds to it's interest and the cultural diversity. Many restaurants and coffee/tea shops available so plan to take your time... More
