Handy Guide To Shopping In Doha – The Best Places In One List!

The key to shopping in any country figuring out helpful tips and the basic ins and outs of some retail stores and thanks to this list, here's your guide to shopping in Doha.



Located on Al Markhiya Street, this majestic mall is signified by the larger than life glass triangle located at the entrance. Alhazm has made a global mark as being the "coolest and most cultured new malls" in the world by the New York Times. The mall has been constructed and designed to remember the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan; the 19th century masterpiece, featuring a combination of glass domed ceilings, Tuscan marble, and hand carved arches with Arabian motifs. The gardens outside the mall are well maintained and manicured to fit gazebos and fountains and rows of Spanish imported olive trees to add to the charm of the mall and its stunning surrounding! The mall features retail outlets, dining establishments and a cultural centre for visitors to indulge in.


Souq Waqif

After visiting Alhazm, you'll be craving for more Arabic styles and influences and there's no better way to get your local fix than by visiting Souq Waqif. You'll feel like a step back in time at this old Arabian open market. Popular things to buy are perfumes, jewellery, handicrafts and silverware. Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels serves as a great accommodation choice as you'll be surrounded by the rustic charm of ancient Arabia. In Doha, family resorts to suit the needs of the entire group can be found anywhere in the city.


Mall of Qatar

A must stop shop for all your needs is the Mall of Qatar. This mega mall features around 500 retail outlets and 100 food outlets and a range of entertainment facilities that is bound to keep people of all ages busy and entertained during your visit to the mall.


Bargain buys

Who doesn't love a good bargain right? The Adidas factory outlet is a great place to start if you're looking to snag up these designer sportswear and equipment for insanely discounted prices. Daiso, a Japanese store is quirky and fun to shop around in, with plenty of bits and bobs to buy. The Dollar Plus located in City Centre Doha is your local variety of a dollar store. This one stop shop is the best place to get all your shopping done, whether you're looking for double side tape or a funny mug!


Fresh markets

If you're looking for local markets to get your supply of fresh fruits, vegetables or even fish, popular options are the Farmers Market or the Fish Market. Popular farmers' markets require a visit to Al Dhakira yard in Al Wakrah or Al Mazrouah Yard in Al Khor. These stalls are usually stacked with fresh produce and are cheaper than that sold in supermarkets.



Doha has a number of big name supermarket outlets to get all your grocery shopping –and more, done. Popular chains like Geant, Carrefour, Mega Market and LuLu Hypermarket are usually where the locals head to get all their shopping done in one place.
