Every Friday, starting from today, Qatar Living will mark “Flashback Fridays” offering a look into the past with some of our must-see videos.
The idea is to let QLers, old and new, revisit and enjoy some of our adventures around Qatar over the years.
In this edition of QL Adventures, QL team member Shaun sets out to explore the intriguing Falcon Souq at Souq Waqif.
The Falcon Souq preserves the traditional sport of falconry that is not only dear to the hearts of locals but also a major attraction for tourists arriving in Qatar.
One of the most prominent and beloved parts of Qatari culture, falconry can be an expensive hobby with some of these remarkably sharp birds costing as high as QR100,000!
If you want to experience what it's like to handle a falcon, be sure to follow some of the tips Shaun offers in this video.
