Stroll past porters pushing wheelbarrows overflowing with fine silks. Squeeze through small alleyways to discover secret vendors. Souq Waqif is a deeply sensory shopping experience, from whiffing fresh spices and fragrant shisha to an encompassing kaleidoscope of colours. The traditional marketplace, located in central Doha, is an heirloom dating back over a century. Bedouins and locals once met here to trade everything from teas to livestock, making the bazaar both a historic and cultural landmark.
Restored to its full former glory about a decade ago, Souq Waqif retains its 19th-century flair with traditional Qatari buildings made of mud rendered walls and exposed timber beams. It is one of the region’s best-preserved traditional marketplaces, and a last great bastion of Arabian authenticity in Doha’s modern, quickly evolving landscape. There is no better place for turning up fabulous take-homes from traditional garments to decorations, spices, and souvenirs, but there’s more than just shopping here too. Must-visit attractions include the Falcon Souq, where distinguished raptors are sold for thousands of Riyal, the Arabian horse stables, and an eclectic mix of art galleries, restaurants and shisha lounges.
