Last December 24, 2016, we went to the newly opened mall here in Qatar, which is called the Mall of Qatar. It is located in Al Rayyan, which is near the City of Doha. We used google maps to reach the place, but we still ended up getting rerouted because most of the roads leading there are still under construction. There are signs to follow though, but your eyes should be quick in spotting those.
We enjoyed strolling this big and spacious mall. Although right now, there are some establishments that are still close and under construction. According to the news, once it is completed, it will be the largest mall in the country. There will be over 500 stores, over 100 restaurants and a lot of entertainment activities that visitors can enjoy and choose from.
They had their soft opening last December 2016, so expect a hype and a lot of curious people visiting this new place. I would suggest going there during the weekdays for now, if you can. If you can’t then just be there early, people starts to build up around 4pm.
Here’s a short video of our recent visit.
