Many shops for tourists selling the same items. Fun to visit and browse. Good restaurants and coffee shops. There are shops selling household goods, clothing, and shoes for locals.

If you're a Westerner (like me) prepare to be amazed at this ancient market where you can buy just about anything AND see people walking their falcons.

A place in Doha where it's best to hang out with your friends by traditional dress, souvenirs, shisha, gold and have some coffee with friends. Quality time to treasure and remember in Qatar.

No set % really, just use your judgement to be realistic so if something is QAR 100 try for QAR 80 for example. Hope this helps.
