The Souk In Doha, Qatar

Doha has a fantastic souk. While it has been restored, it hasn't drifted into becoming a tourist attraction. There's plenty for a visitor to do from grabbing a meal to doing a little shopping. For locals, the souk still is a dependable destination for groceries, toys, textiles, even pets. Something for everyone.

The souk is both outside and covered. The pet shop area.

There's a little exhibition that features a summary of Qatar history.  For the kids, it's all about toys, even if it means toy AK47s.

For the big shoppers, porters are available.  They follow you around with a decorated wheelbarrow, collecting your purchases. In between customers, a porter grabbing a nap on an unused restaurant bench.
