Falcon Souq, Doha

(4.1/5 based on 85+ 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.

  • We visited this souk, intrigued by the novelty. It was actually a very interesting visit, first of all for the kindness of salespeople, who have allowed us to get into their stores, and did take pictures at will.
