From designer labels to artisanal handicraft, Doha has something for everyone. Check out our list of favourite places to shop:
City-Centre Doha - The largest of Doha’s shopping experiences, this jumbo mall offers everything you could want under one, massive roof. From fashion to food to movies to bowling alleys and arcades, get lost in this exaggerated reality that could keep you wandering for hours.
Villaggio - Fashioned after a Venetian aesthetic, the highlight of this new mall is the re-enactment of the Venice Canal within its interiors. Stretching from one end to the other, you can hitch a ride down the water on a gondola for 15 QR. The mall also features a plethora of modern retail shops, a supermarket and a 3D cinema.
Souq Waqif - Experience the romantic charm of an ancient souq, right in the heart of the city. Recreated to resemble a 19th century souq, Souq Waqif offers great souvenirs and knick-knacks that you would only find in a traditional marketplace. If there’s one shopping experience to be had, it would be this.
Omani Souq - The smaller, lesser publicised cousin of Souq Waqif, Oman Souq is chockfull of little surprises and delightful finds. It is famous for its food stuff and kitchenware, selling all kinds of spices, fresh produce, woven baskets, as well as flowers and plants. Look out for the seasonal white truffles, which are sold here at great prices.
