Souq Waqif is bustling with people walking around the alleys window-shopping or enjoying their shisha with friends and family at restaurants. It provides an excellent place for people to gather, shop for traditional knick-knacks, spices.
The only traditional souk to remain in the Gulf, it’s now a charming labyrinth of narrow streets where visitors can bargain and purchase an amazing diverse range of products.
A visit to one of the falcon shop is unique experience some – shopkeepers will allow you to photograph and handle the birds while explaining equipment and training.
There are regular displays of folk dance and music, particularly on festive occasions, and opportunities to take authentic pictures. Enjoy your day or evening at the souk followed by a dinner in one of the local restaurants.
