Souq Waqif and Standing Market Tour

Art, culture and gastronomy
Ticket e-voucher
2h duration

Souq Waqif means "standing market." The highlights are Falcon souq, spice souq, pet souq, gold souq, handicraft souq, and art gallery.

It's also worth seeking out the small gold souq and the falcon souq, where you can handle these prized birds. Falcon still plays an essential role in Qatari life, used for hunting in Qatar and abroad. If you walk a little further into the labyrinth, you'll see families shopping for their everyday needs. Souq will allow you to check your bargaining...
