A most welcome addition for motorists looking to park in the centre of Doha is the new Souq Waqif Car Park, situated underground underneath Souq Waqif and with a safe underground passageway for those wishing to enjoy a walk along the seaside Corniche.

The car park is almost 100% complete and is very large. It is light and airy and easy to navigate. Even more user-friendly, there are helpful officials ready to personally guide you, and there are electric ‘golf carts’ for those who don’t want to walk too far.

When you do walk, however, you can take the chance to see historic pictures of Souq Waqif on the walls. The deluxe finishing of the interior, with extensive use of marble on the walls and floor, plus distinctive chandeliers, makes your walk a pleasure. There are no steps to climb, with escalators and lifts available, and clean, modern toilets should be functioning soon.

With this deluxe addition to the landscape, albeit underground, the centre of Doha has suddenly become more welcoming to motorists.
