Same everywhere, I did not find this place is something I would like to consider authentic Mideast market. Loads of shops are actually owned by Indians instead of Qatari. The products being sold are made in China like everywhere else in the world, it's just happen to be in Doha, and one would think it is more about Arabian produce... More

Collection of uninteresting rubbish in some kind of Disneyesque setup attracting people do see something in one of the most boring places in the world. Have a cup of coffee and watch the people to pass by and leave.

A place we're, I believe, everyone feels good, you only have to find your fitting, I'm sure it's there somewhere - an exterior mall of possibilities. I highly advice a visit here.

The amount of shops here is unbelievable. There is no hard sell from the shop owners but bartering is expected. Only bad thing is the amount of animals on sale.

Always love to spend time here when visiting Doha. Great atmosphere and lovely to sit having a coffee and watch the world go by. There is an Arts Centre on the Main Street and if lucky, you can see artists actually painting. I always seem to need some jewellery rethreading and for this I go to a small shop near... More

We had short (2 days) stopover in Doha, our hotel was located reasonably close to the Souq so we were able to walk there. We ended up going three times, first time to look around and the other two to eat. Of the three times the most exciting and charismatic was in the evening. I'm not sure if it is... More

This Doha souq is a busy place in the evenings. The market is full of shops with a wide range of goods. You can find traditional items and tourist trinkets. There is the gold souq and the falcon souq. On Friday evening you may hear and see traditional dance and music performances. Of course there are a variety of tasty... More
