    It’s meant to look like the rose coloured crystal that gives it its name. While the exhibits inside are very impressive, it’s the structure and size of this building that I keep going back to.”

    Qatar is a land of spectacular natural features and fascinating adventures.

    Around 60 kilometers away from the capital, lies a spectacular desert terrain that’s an adventure in itself.

    The Inland Sea, which is located in the region of Khor Al Adaid, is a place where the sand dunes meet the sea. This is a unique place that only happens once in a lifetime.

    There are a number of fascinating creatures living in the dunes of Khor Al Adaid. These include dugongs, turtles, and snakes.

    Here’s what Gosbert Chagula  thought about this tourist attraction: “Definitely worth a trip to see Inland Sea Beach. I’d recommend booking a half day dune bashing trip which will include a final stop here before heading back home. If you go in the early afternoon you should make it time to see the sunset around 5pm. Worth noting that there are no toilet facilities or shops, many people bring their own food, drinks and snacks.”

    Another visitor, Mohamed Kamil, has this to share about their experience during their last trip here: “I took my team on a half day trip and everyone loved it. Mohammed and his team were amazing and took brilliant care of us. They provided some proper dune bashing (which brought on of our team to his knees but the rest called for more) and truly offered a great experience. I have done this trip with other providers in Doha before but this company was the best one so far. Hats up for the drivers they were fantastic.

    The camp is very clean and in a good location with a very friendly atmosphere. I wish we would have had an overnight stay.

    We booked a half-day dune safari. Booking was complicated and the start process mildly nerve-wracking, but our driver (a Yemeni whose name we failed to extract) was absolutely exceptional – he drove beautifully on the roads and exceptionally on the dunes. A lot of his real skill was hard to spot because he handled even the trickiest situations with calm and little show. The set-pieces were handled with enough panache to get the adrenaline going but without having to push any limits. Highly impressive on-road and off-road. Recommended.”

From home shopping needs, to grocery store needs, to athletics, to furniture, there is literally something for everyone. The prices vary depending on what store you go in to, but the overall ambience of the mall is superb. The bathrooms are in pristine condition and the restaurant service is great. Foreign shoppers should be cognizant of how they dress and respect the cultural norms. For women, long pants/jeans/leggings with a typical style blouse (with sleeves) is perfectly fine. Long dresses or tunics are also suitable. Short shorts/skirts or shirts exposing the chest, midriff or shoulders are not appropriate. I wore a regular Under Armour t-shirt and workout leggings and did not have any issues. The men can pretty much wear normal attire such as jeans and regular t-shirts or long bermuda shorts. Great mall and great shopping experience. Will definitely be back.”

    Another visitor, Ravi B, has this to share about their experience in this establishment: “Definitely, one of the biggest mall I have been to. You will find all the good brands here which includes food brands and shopping brand. You name it and you will find it here. It has more than 400 brands. You can easily spoil your full day here. All the security and mall staffs are very helpful.”

    Learn The History of Falcons

    Holiday Picks: 31 Activities To Do In Qatar
    Credits: Marwan Mohammed / Google Map

    There are plenty of things to do in Qatar, but one of the most popular is learning about Falconry. This fascinating bird of prey is one of the most popular attractions in the region.

    The Souq is dedicated to the birds of Egypt. There are various bird supplies and equipment available here.

    The Souq is a place where you can find all kinds of bird-related equipment, such as gloves, masks, and harnesses. There is also a hospital that’s dedicated to treating these birds.

    Falconry is a tradition that has been passed down through the generations. This art form is considered an Intangible Cultural Heritage.

    The Falcon auction is held every year in Qatar. The birds are sold following their sizes, abilities, and various characteristics.

    The price of a bird in Qatar is quite high, which makes it important for visitors to go to the auctions to have close encounters with the animals.

    Here’s what Hans Tibboel thought about this tourist attraction: “Located next to Souq Waqif, the Falcon Souq is definitely a place to visit. I went there in the morning at around 0800 and it was pleasantly quiet and an excellent time to stroll around and take pictures. Most of the shops allowed me to go inside to look at the falcons and to take pictures. I also visited the Falcon hospital – apparently the only dedicated falcon hospital in the world. The market itself has an interesting architecture / building style. There are some beautiful horses too and the view of Doha skyline, the water and Dhows (traditional boats) just outside the Souq is stunning.”

    Another  guest, Kaosar Ahmaad, has this to share  about their experience  visiting here: “The Falcon Souq, which is close to the Souq Waqif, is an interesting look into the sport of falconry, with a dozen or so shops that sell the birds and related paraphernalia, such as hoods, stands, gloves, leashes, and the like. The falcons can sell for $600 to as much as $100,000, depending upon the skill of a particular bird. There’s even a falcon hospital on the grounds of the souq.

    Falcons are generally kept hooded to keep them calm until their handlers wish to put them into “hunting mode.” It was fascinating and a bit unnerving to be so close to these raptors.

    Note that there is a “bird market” within the Souq Waqif. That market is NOT the falcon market, but specializes in other sort of birds as pets, e.g., parrots, pigeons, parakeets, and the like. The falcon market is nearby, so just ask one of the shopkeepers how to get to the falcon shops.”
