Falcon Souq, Doha
(4.1/5 based on 75+ 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 the Falcon Souk you will find the local men. The hawks are a popular hobby. And here the hobby is maintained. There are an infinite number of hawks and lots of accessories. For outsiders like we hold only half as exciting, but still quite fascinating. Warning, it stinks in some places quite strongly.

  • If you visit the souhk waqif walking to the Falcons souhks. Shops where all the different kinds of birds of prey on sticks blindfolded are waiting for their next owner. You can't not go against trapped animals,!! Would you like culture, then it's kind of interesting. You can just go inside.
