Must see part of any visit to Qatar for visitors and residents
May 2021 • Friends
The Souq is located on the Corniche in Doha with huge underground car parks for 3,000 cars and nearby Metro station. Best time to visit is in the early evening or Saturday morning when the Souq is busy. As well as hundreds of shops there are some great restaurants, cafes and food stalls and many locals and residents visit the Souq in the evenings for dining and relaxation as well as shopping. This is not a Souq for just tourists as many locals and residents shop here for everyday items as well as the specialist Scent, Oud and Jewellery areas and prices are often cheaper than stores in Doha. There is also a Pet Souq area within the Souq primarily selling birds as well as small domestic pets which can be off putting for some people. There are not many things you cannot buy in the Souq and expect some haggling on prices in some but not all of the shops. Best to leave at least 2-3 hours to have a good look around plus time for dinner, coffee or snacks. You will also regularly see some of the Emir Arab horses and guards patrolling the Souq and you can also see their stables within the Souq area (as well as Camels). Souq has been on this site for over a century but rebuilt in a very authentic style in 2006 following a serious fire. A must see part of and Qatar visit and a regular visit to soak up the atmosphere as a resident.

ANMIAL ABUSE CENTER. DIRTY MARK ON THE COUNTRY.
May 2021
The end ruined it for me, when i got to the "pet market" looked like illegal pet trafficking. ANMIAL ABUSE CENTER. It ruined my whole experience in Qatar as I thought nice country.

How people treat animals shows a lot about the nation. Inhumane. Careless.

Arabian Horses 🐎
Feb 2021 • Solo
💚For me the best time to visit the Horses stable is during cold weather. While you are enjoying feeding the horses and at the same time they will surely captive you with their beauty. It's a relaxing moment for me, the breeze of the wind and get connected with such adorable arabian horses even in a short time.
