Qatar – Doha

This is my guest post on Linda’s blog – comments are there too:

Posting about the place I live in is not the same as posting about a place that I visited once or twice. One might have a lot to talk about and a lot of pictures or events to share. One post isn’t enough for sure and more is coming…

Arab Gulf countries have an impressing modern architecture. Though in Qatar, there is a noticeable touch of the old lovely culture and heritage.

Heritage?! You can spend hours at “Souq Waqif” (the oldest market here)… A lot of fun and traditional stuffs in addition to restaurants and cafes. Yet almost all world food cuisines are available in Qatar, you must try the traditional food “Harees”.

Having Harees is more fun at the traditional food court in Souq Waqif – traditional food in traditional way.

Of course, the main wonderful place is Doha Corniche:
