Discover Arabian Culture Package

2 NIGHTS

Join us on a journey into this cultural hub of the Middle East and explore a historical marketplace, masterfully redeveloped to maintain its original 19th century look. This labyrinthine market, known as the original "standing market", is Qatar’s oldest souq and its covered passageways are crammed full with dozens of tiny stores showcasing their wares piled high along the market's mud-coated stone walls. The souq harks back to a bygone era while remaining a hub of activity, where commerce and local gossip take equal importance. 
 

In addition to the walking tour of Souq Waqif, the hotels have been carefully chosen to give you an immersive cultural experience during your stay in Qatar. With a range of Arabian dining options, you will get a deep understanding of the culture underpinning this Middle Eastern nation.
