Souq Waqif is a showpiece of traditional architecture, handicrafts and folk art, and was once a weekend trading area for the Bedouin. The only traditional souq to remain in the Gulf, it is now a charming labyrinth of narrow streets where visitors can bargain and purchase an amazingly diverse range of products.
Enjoy a visit to the Souq's of Doha. Be picked up from your hotel and taken on an unforgettable shopping tour.
A visit to one of the falcon shops is a unique experience – some shopkeepers will allow you to photograph and handle the birds while explaining equipment and training. There are regular displays of folk dance and music, particularly on festive occasions, and opportunities to photograph donkeys with traditional patterned saddles. Enjoy your day or evening at the Souq before returning to your hotel.
