Qatar with Travelbiz. Souq Waqif
A world within a world, Qatar offers something for everyone. Visitors to the country can experience the cosmopolitan and bustling city of Doha and the contrasting awe-inspiring expansiveness of the desert within the same day. Safe and secure, the metropolis of Doha offers many world class and must visit attractions, including the traditional market Souq Waqif.
Nestled in the heart of Doha is the traditional market, Souq Waqif. With its mud-daubed buildings, winding alleyways and cobbled pathways, Souq Waqif transports travellers back in time for an immersive cultural experience. A visit to Doha would not be complete without a few hours spent getting lost in its labyrinth of shops and stalls and spectacular spice aromas. Hidden in the Souqs are several restaurants which offer the perfect place to settle down for a traditional dish whilst spectating the busy streets below.
Built on the site of Doha’s century old trading market, on the banks of the Wadi Musheireb, Souq Waqif feels like an anachronism, particularly against the backdrop of Doha’s dramatic modernist skyline. With its mud-daubed buildings, the market harkens to a bygone era while remaining a hub of activity, where commerce and gossip collide. Souq Waqif’s winding alleys offer a tableau of traditional street life.
