printable version souq waqif doha

Souq Waqif DohaSouq Waqif is the most visited souq in Doha and it is well developed compared to the other souqs nearby. Souq Waqif literarily means “standing market”, where in the past local residents met each other to exchange or buy their needs, such as meat, milk, and so on.

Today it has plenty of souvenirs shops, modern restaurants (they don't sell alcoholic drinks here), groceries shops for mostly local residents, as well as a police station.
