These jewels of lanterns hung though the art galleries in Doha’s Souq Waqif pull in almost as many shoppers as the air conditioning does. The small gelato place behind it is a hidden treasure well worth the hunt.

As part of our visit in Doha, we made sure we did not missed visiting this market "SOUQ WAQIF" Leisurely walking along the market seeing all the vibrant movement of people, admiring all the different things around the market. People were just happy walking along, some were sharing good drinks, and smoking hookah? But what we enjoyed the most was when we ended in one corner where we saw two women seating and busy weaving this fabolous rugs patiently. Some of their finished rugs were hanging on the wall and some were simply layed on the ground so you can see the intricate work done beautifuly with their own hand. Prices were not cheap but you can understand the hours they spend to create one piece. We just can't leave without buying even for just small one to take it home with us.
