Katara is nice and most of the time quiet place in Doha. There are several exhibitions during the year such as photo and art, which are very interesting to visit and spend your time. There are also many good restaurants here.

Unfortunately we visited this a little late, we didn't have much time left. If we did I would definitely have returned. Really nice area full of restaurants and cafes. The beach was really nice also with a private area where you could book private lodges.

Love to visit this place (and doing it often). Every month you can find nice art exhibitions of local and international artists. Katara bringing festivals (Cultural diversity, Burger festival, Coffee festival, Falcon and Hunting fest). An incredible number of activities (Music, Art, Hunting).

Even big malls are quite empty up to 6:30pm, so it is not a surprise. With the summer temperature, even out of Ramadan you will not find as much people as you can find at night, at least until end of September.
