Really cultural place in Doha related to the country’s traditions and heritage. It’s also nice for kids to see the falcons and their keepers who do well to explain about the birds 🦅

Falcons are an important part of the Qatari culture. When at the Souk Waqif, seek out the falcon section. Birds and lots of supplies for sale. And you might just see one on a flight if traveling through the Middle East.

This was my first time I saw a highly demanded market for falcon. There was lots of different businesses going on related to falcons. The most surprising thing I saw was The Falcon Hospital.
