Souq Waqif

Dating back to around 250 years, Souq Waqif is a labyrinth bazaar and the Qatari capital’s oldest souq. Its name translates to “standing market” and is called as such because vendors used to stand at the entrances to sell their products. Explore the souq’s tiny stores along the mud-coated stone walls and find everything from scented oils and diamonds to even falcons. Then visit the Falcon Souq where you can see the majestic birds up close and even take a photo with a falcon perched on your arm.
