Souq Waqif

Me at Souq Waqif 15-11-10

Souq Waqif is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Doha. Souq, btw, means market. Souq Waqif is an old market but the government decided to revamp it to restore its former glory and it's amazing that they were able to manage to make it look old and new at the same time.

There's a huge range of shops here mostly selling traditional handicrafts, garments, souvenirs and even spices and herbs. The best part about this souq is that you'll find a lot of restaurants and coffee shops where in you can chill out with your friends and loved ones.

We were lucky this day because we saw this group of camels near the parking area. It's not everyday that you see camels you know.

Love it!
