“Great fun in the evening”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A lovely market full of the usual shops selling carpets, spices, clothes etc and full of interesting cafes and restaurants. We went quite late and it was not so hot, though some of the older people in our group still found it unpleasant and had to seek out an air conditioned place to rest.

Many antiuq shops, arabian food restaurants (local - lebanon - Egypt), shisha cafés, many events are being arranged there for tourist .
Sweet shops, clouth shops and birds market.
You will engoy this visit :)

“Don't miss this if you visit Doha”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Amazing, wonderful, classic, traditional, best tribute to the past with the facilities of the present time. Truly enjoyed this visit better than malls and city attractions that are found everywhere. Only big negative point is the limited, cramped and paid parking which is not at all justified. Also the layout should be better planned to regulate the rush and need to increase more of the roadside cheaper eateries.

“Authentic Arabic market”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

A really traditional market, in a modern setting, with many little shops selling souvenirs as well as restaurants to choose from. There is towards the end of the main street, an art exhibition on photos from Doha and the Middle East, NOT TO BE MISSED!!! During Eid, a lot of fun family activities and shows took place which is nice.
