Qatar has many amazing state-of-the-art malls that have been around for quite some time along with a few uxe ones. Whether it is Mall of Qatar, Doha Festival City, Villagio Mall, or Ezdan Mall, families flock to these places as soon as the weekend begins. However, there are quite a few other malls in Qatar that have also been family favorites for quite a while.
