Encompassing a whopping 600,000 square metres, Doha Festival City provides more than just shopping and is an ideal place to spend the day. One of the best family attractions in Qatar, the mall features more than 400 stores offering fashion, jewellery, sporting goods, homeware, gadgets and more. Harvey Nichols and a Monoprix hypermarket can be found here, along with brands like Giordano, Armani Exchange, Mango, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger.

Spanning five storeys, Doha City Centre is one of the largest in the city and has a mix of international, regional and local brands. Located in the West Bay area, it is only around a 25-minute drive from Hamad International Airport in Doha. Hotels that offer easy access to the mall are ideal accommodation options for those looking to spend lots of time here; there are around 370 shops and stores to peruse with brands the likes of Nike, Calvin Klein, Mango, Quick Silver, Body Shop, Adidas and Debenhams. Apart from a variety of restaurants, the mall has a bowling alley, cinema complex and even an ice rink!
