Qatar : Falcon Souq


This typical Arabic market, which dates back hundreds of years and recently restored, is one of the top tourist destinations. The tradition of hunting with falcons began in the region thousands of years ago with desert nomads and the practice still continues today. Falconry is a big hobby for Qatari men, therefore it isn't a surprise to find an entire block of Souq Waqif dedicated to these impressive birds.
