Doha is seeing large scale development and the impressive skyline is a sure sign of investment by the Qatari government.

Shopping

Shopping

Doha is packed with shopping options, from traditional souqs to the modern glitzy shopping malls. A stroll around a traditional souq is a memorable experience since it gives you a chance to rub shoulders with the locals and pick up some great bargains. The Souq Waqif is a good place to start, then wander off to the Gold Souq, the Falcon Souq and the Handicrafts Souq. There’s also the Spices & Sweets area.

However, the Malls are a major leisure pursuit where families ‘hang out’. The City Centre is by far the biggest and most popular. Located in West Bay, it has a range of stores including jewellery and perfume outlets. Further afield, there is Villaggio Mall where you’ll find many western stores. The food court is worth sampling with its fast food style restaurants, as well as several sit-down options. The other option is the Hyatt Plaza Mall located near Sports City, which is smaller but worth a quick look around. Landmark Shopping Mall specialises mainly in clothing, jewellery, and cosmetics.
 

Food And Drink

Food And Drink

Given the diversity of expatriates in Doha, there is a large variety of different types of cuisine, including Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Korean and, of course, typical Middle Eastern food. There are also the well-known American chains like Roger's Diner, Chili's, and TGI Fridays. When you are in a hurry there’s always McDonald's, KFC, Hardee's, Burger King and Dairy Queen, as well as countles pizza outlets.

Local food in Doha is exceptional, in particular the Turkish restaurants which serve good food at reasonable prices. Their starters are mouth-watering and the main courses like Mixed Grill are so satisfying. Fancy some Persian food? Ask the taxi to take you to Shebestan Restaurant.

Doha also has a large Indian population so Indian restaurants are plentiful. The Garden Village is not to be missed. As for Seafood ‘Best Fish’ a little further on Al-Mirghab St. is your best bet. For something more upmarket try the Fish Market at the Movenpick Hotel.
