There are many small museums and opportunities to learn here about Qatar. We really enjoyed this. There was a festival going on while we were present so there were groups singing and dancing. Very nice place. I recommend visiting.

Visited during the Dhow boat show. Very very few westerners around but I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Very interesting to see the artisans and craft. Beautiful area. One downside, be careful of the teal colored taxis! We got into a taxi, when it took off noticed the meter was not on, driver then indicated its a private taxi. He turned... More
