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

Doha is an oasis in the middle of the desert. The most unique feature of the city is the Souq. You can get a feel for Arabic culture, food, people all in one place. Dont miss it if you are visiting Doha!

I've been to many souq's in my time but this is by far the best! So many different things to buy, very cultural and so many places to eat. We went about 5 times in the space of 2 weeks!

A trip to the souq is a must when visiting Doha. Getting lost in the aisles of shopping and taking in the culture is a great way to spend an evening. The place doesn't really come alive until around 7pm. But then the place is...More
