You have heard about Souq Waqif as the social heart and tourist hotspot of Doha, but today we are going to show you Souq Wakrah - the other Souq Waqif of Qatar. The winding mazes of the Souq Wakrah are a typical Middle Eastern delight. Souq Waqif, Wakrah will give you a sense of wonder with its beautiful architecture and seaside atmosphere.

Souq Al Wakrah offers a perfect quieter and tranquil spot if you’re looking to chill out and unwind. It is quieter than the hustle and bustle of Souq Waqif with fewer shops making it a perfect stopover for a restful night stroll. The souq is divided into 10 zones of markets, restaurants, shops, animal & bird shops, and has a kid's playground, ample parking, and the Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar.

The outstanding part of the Souq is the long stretch of pristine sandy beach which is a source of peace. It stretches approximately 3 km along the town’s coast, with a corniche for people to walk along. On weekends, a lot of families visit this beach that has other facilities like a playground, toilets, and activities for kids.

The waterfront promenade of the Souq is lined with restaurants and cafés offering a wide range of options from Qatari, Middle Eastern to Italian and Indian food, with outdoor seating areas for you to take in the crisp sea air long into the night. The Souq also has some grocery shops and a fish market.
