Themed on venice, complete with a water way and gondola ride.....usual menagerie of shops, nothing to blow the mind. Food court ok, a high end section with Verace shoes for kids at $300 a pair, a good Carrefour and a place to blow a few hours if nothing else productive to do!

This a really nice mall with high end shops, a nice food court, ice rink, and large area for kids. I had fun walking around looking at the architecture and the fake canal that runs through part of the mall. It reminded me a lot of the Venetian in Las Vegas. I came early in the day so the place was almost empty. It is a little way out of town but it is right next door the sports complex so you can can combine the two into one cab ride each each way.

The Villaggio is the best mall in Qatar by far. If your staying towards the city centre then expect a good 30 minute drive there and add a bit more if the traffic is bad.

There was an unfortunate fire here not so long ago so some of the mall is still closed off but the majority of it is open now.

One section of the mall is a food court theres pretty much everything there to entice you, may I recommend applebees, the foods good and you cant beat the level of service. If you want to be really cheeky go to the Krispy Kreme shop and ask them if they just made any fresh dohnuts from the oven, for some reason they give them away for free sometimes :-)

If your looking at burning a hole in your pocket then visit the posh part of the Mall, theres everything there but just beware of some of the shops won't mention any names but i'v heard some got fined not so long back for selling fake items in their stores. Like i said know what your buying.

Theres H and M, River island and some other British shops but again look to pay a little bit more especially in River island etc, shoes are like twice the price from the UK. If your a budget shopper and like a good bargain go to City Centre Mall and visit Jennifer the fashions nice and its a good price.

You have a huge Carrefour Supermarket where you can buy pretty much everything and Virgin Megastore is right at the end near the Cinema, the Virgin in there is cool and its the biggest in Qatar so buy what you need there.

Overall the Mall is very good, if your a newby in town or visiting as a tourist, then do go on the gondalla down the river, it's pretty corny and you feel like an idiot but it will save you paying 80 Euros in Venice, been there done it!

Enjoy guys!
