Charming attractions for every traveller

Souq Waqif

With its maze of stone alleyways and the scent of shisha, the Souq Waqif exudes an old-world charm. Dozens of shops sell perfumes, incense, traditional Qatari clothing, shoes, jewellery, spices and dried fruits. Visitors can enjoy a range of local and international cuisines at the souq’s restaurants and coffee shops, along with art galleries, falcon shops and pet stores.

Gold Souq

A visit to the Gold Souq, behind the Alfardan Centre, is not to be missed. Small shops are filled with glittering bangles, rings, necklaces and Qatari bridal jewellery – most of the accessories are made of 22-carat gold, as well as precious stones and pearls that recall Qatar’s past as a pearling nation.

Sheikh Faisal Collection

The spectacular Sheikh Faisal collection, housed in a 17,000 sqm museum, features more than 15,000 unique artefacts such as ancient Islamic manuscripts and archaeological treasures, as well as a fascinating collection of historic cars that includes a 19th-century steam vehicle. The museum’s pavilions also display religious objects from a diversity of faiths.
