A New Market that Looks Like a 19th Century Souq
Souq Waqif is without a doubt one of the top tourist destinations in Doha and one of the most traditional markets in the region. A hundred years ago, this was the place where the Bedouins traded livestock, spices and general goods, but now, the old souq has been restored and the new one looks like a 19th-century Qatari market, with mud shops, exposed wooden beams, antique shops, modern art galleries, a wide variety of restaurants, hotels, and divan-like outdoor cafes to smoke shisha and drink chai-karak, the local tea.
