Here you will experience the wonderful results of traditional Arabic touch in an iconic architectural success. The turquoise blue beach with the middle east type finishings on your sides and the majestic theatre on the back will paint that picture that will make you miss Qatar. I am hoping to go back when the Katara project is completed

We arrived by taxi and weren't sure where to go. We couldn't find an entrance or information so just started to walk around. We took a free buggy car tour to get a better idea of the place then got out at the beach. We enjoyed looking at the beach and old dhow boats and Arabesque beach huts with A/C... More

Katara cultural village is a must see place while in Doha. It offers something for everyone young and old. Begin by taking a leisurely walk by the bay overlooking the man made island of Pearl Qatar. Stop by the art galleries and look for special exhibitions. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating with restaurants offering... More

I travel throughout the Middle East and Far East for work. Many times staying in locations for extended periods. While in Doha, I received a recommendation from the Khalifa Art Center to visit the village to see the photo galleries. Frankly, I was impressed with the layout, and design of the Cultural Village. Photographic opportunities were everywhere and the staff... More

Arrived by taxi & headed towards a beckoning gold dome to find it, like many other parts of this place, is seriously under construction. There are no signs explaining what is happening so we trudged about until finally an English speaker told us where to go. We were greeted by a couple of electric buggies driven by Nepalese guys. After... More

The place looks like a replica of various architectural styles. It's, in a sense, unique in Qatar and perhaps in the gulf region. The setup is directed towards high end visitors. The restaurants, cafes, entertainment and other services charge a premium in this place. The long summer months are a major down side. That usually last 5 to 6 months... More

Just like The Pearl, the golf carts in this place were driven by reckless young Nepalese. I have reported this to the management but my phone call was passed on from one person to another. For the sake of safety, do not take the golf carts and be on a lookout for them. Restaurants are pricey. Boring place. Getting there... More
