Souq Waqif
Souq Waqif

Built on the site of Doha’s century old trading market, on the banks of the Wadi Msheireb, Souq Waqif feels like an anachronism, particularly against the backdrop of Doha’s dramatic modernist skyline. With its mud-daubed buildings, the market harkens to a bygone era while remaining a hub of activity, where commerce and community collide. Souq Waqif’s winding alleys offer a tableau of traditional street life.
