If you only had time to visit one attraction in Doha then this should probably be the one. A beautiful market in an array of old buildings. Well worth a visit just to see the buildings and take in the atmosphere. Lot's of interesting things...More

Nice to be here. A lot of original arabic little shops. Like it was in the old times. The people are polite. Study the map to see the different 'branches' like clothes, shoes, animals etc.

The shops are operated by people from all over the world. The aroma of the spices and oils were captivating. I purchased spices from Syria, honey from Yemen and perfume and body oil from Kuwait. The gold prices were excellent. The highlight of the evening...More

Didn’t enjoy one minute of this visit. Place was disgusting. Animals being sold in cages, clearly too big to be in a cage. Nothing worth while to see or buy. Won’t be back

No visa required. You need a return ticket. 30 days maximum stay. Personal advice, 4 days are more than enough to visit Qatar. The weather will be lovely from now until April though, so if book a hotel with a beach you will... More
