Overview

No visit to Doha is complete without browsing through the various rich markets and one of the most prominent ones is Souq Waqif. Souq Waqif means “standing market” and some of the highlights and extensions of this market are Falcon souq, spice souq, pet souq, gold souq, handicraft souq and art gallery. 

Bedouins and locals would gather on either side of the river to trade goods — from cumin to wood. It’s also worth seeking out the small gold souq and the falcon souq, where you can handle these prized birds. Falcon still plays an important role in Qatari life, used for hunting both in Qatar and abroad.

If you walk a little further into the labyrinth, you’ll see families shopping for their everyday needs. The various Souq give you an opportunity to check your bargaining skill. You can find good collection of Qatari traditional wear and handicrafts. Be sure to pick up souvenirs for friends and loved ones back home!
