Luxury Shopping in Doha - Experiencing the city through a different lens

Doha is synonymous with luxury shopping. It is a way of life for the Middle Eastern kingdom. If you want to know where to go so you can live the royal life, this list is just for you.


L'ÉCOLE Van Cleef & Arpels

L'ÉCOLE Van Cleef & Arpels is a Paris based school of jewellery making that has made a fine art out of the craft. It is going to be the latest addition to the luxury shopping venues in Doha, making the place more attractive for the visitor who is out for a different type of Doha sightseeing. Scheduled to open in November 2017, L'ÉCOLE Van Cleef & Arpels is planning to have a large scale opening complete with exhibits, conversations, and numerous other activities. Renowned jewellers, gemologists, and watchmakers from all over the world are expected to be in Doha for the occasion.


Falcon Souq

What defines luxury more so than having your own fleet of falcons? The Falcon Souq in Doha is a testimony to the lifestyle of its residents. A whole market dedicated to the sale of falcons and falcon-rearing equipment, the Falcon Souq is located adjacent to the Salwa Road Roundabout in AlWaab. Even if you are not interested in purchasing a falcon, it is a place well worth a visit, for the experience, is something you are unlikely to have elsewhere in your lifetime.


Souq Waqif

Souq Waqif or the Waqif market is probably the best-known shopping destination in Doha, easily accessible due to the presence of Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels. It is a place where you can find almost anything you want, be it souvenirs, spices, food, garments, or handicrafts. There are several shisha lounges here in addition to a plethora of restaurants, each specializing in a different cuisine. It is best visited in the night, though you can easily spend two to three days exploring all the shops and attractions the Souq has to offer.


Doha City Centre

Somewhat different from all the rest, Doha City Centre caters to a larger market. It is a collection of most famous malls in Doha and has many fast food chains located within it. Many people visit the City Centre for the sake of the fast food, although the shopping here does not leave a lot to be desired. If you are looking for a quick shopping trip, this is the place to go.


Gold Souq

Nothing speaks of riches better than gold. The Gold Souq in Doha is a must visit for any tourist visiting the city. It is quite busy no matter what time of the day and is often considered as the most sought-after Souq in Doha. The Souq sells nothing but gold, popular and well-established jewellers al coming under one roof to make the Souq the success that it is. You can either purchase a ready-made necklace, bracket, a pair of earrings, or rings - or have them make something exclusive just for you.
