Nice place to hang out. Nice food and shops to just stroll around, do some shopping and enjoy the atmosphere.

It's an adventure to go there at least once. I wouldn't recommend buying anything or eating anything there, but why not buy a few souvenirs.

Everyone kept telling us that 1-2 days is enough to see Doha but we could have spent at least one full day exploring Souq Waqif only. It's such a great place with a nice atmosphere and so much to see and explore. We'll return to...More

I also visited at night. I do not have any idea about working hours. I suppose it can be very hot therefore nights is perfect time for wandering.

The Souq is open till 1.30pm then closes and reopens at 4pm. So you can go there from 10am to 1:30.
