Falcon Souq, Doha

(4.1/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
For the ultimate Qatari cultural experience, head to Falcon Souq. As you make your way around the souq, you'll start to learn about and understand the importance of falconry in Qatari society. Explore the market to find shops selling training materials, specialized falcon hoods, and even the birds themselves. Make your way to the outdoor area to see the birds exercised several times throughout the day. Most bird keepers will be happy to let you wander around their showrooms, in which you can see the magnificent birds wearing leather hoods and sitting on their perches. Although very well trained, these birds are extremely dangerous, so do not touch unless told otherwise.

  • In this part of the Souk you will find merchants of falcons and accessories but also the clinic for Falcons. What beautiful bird with a magnificent presence. You can discover bringing owners put on their glove their Falcon for a medical visit or a wound. One of the only places where you can get close to the Falcons.

  • Several shops, some are sometimes out and take the air attached. It is interesting to discuss with a seller and see the Qataries inquire to buy. It's very unusual!
