Description

Visit the iconic Museum of Islamic Arts which houses manuscripts, ceramics, textiles and other artifacts collected from Spain, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, India and Central Asia. The museum, which opened in December of 2008, is a world-class collecting institution which preserves and exhibits masterpieces spanning
13 centuries. The artifacts showcased are of the highest quality, representing the diversity found in Islamic heritage and culture.

Take a stroll around the traditional Souq Waqif and see the spice market, fabric stores, handicraft shops and art galleries. Souq Waqif is one of the liveliest places in Doha and was once a trading area for the Bedouin. Experience the ancient Arabic heritage as you walk through a labyrinth of narrow streets and bargain for a variety of products such as perfumes, dried fruit, nuts, spices, incense and more!

Visit one of the falcon shops and get a chance to photograph and hold some of the birds. Taste traditional Qatari food and Middle Eastern specialties in one of the many restaurants and cafes in the area. Try the traditional Shisha or water pipe, see common displays of folk dances or simply enjoy shopping for souvenirs!
