From the intricately-carved white gypsum panels and traditional detailed lightscreens marrying side by side with softly curved vanilla arches, Katara Cultural Village harkens present-day visitors back to a yesteryear long, long ago marked by contrasts of old and new. Whether a tourist, expat resident, such as myself, or Qatari national, Katara has something for everyone. Wandering the lanes, splashing in... More

Step back in time. Excellent source for all natural cooking ingredients. Must see to appreciate. I found items I had to Google to see what that spice was used for. Should be on your trip schedule.

Katara village is really breathtaking with all of the unique archeticture & design, but the problem is now in Qatar the weather is the worst due to humidity so plan your visit in the end of September till April, it will be better.

The Katara is a calm and beautiful place. A lot of culture and delicious food. Specially the chocolates of Chac'Late... Was a incredible experience. But also is hot just like every open place in Doha.

This was the first time we tried the Sea food restaurant in Katara. The fish was delicious, but not so good for the lobster and crab. The problem to tourist there is that very difficult to find any taxi for your return after dinner.
