Surely, the happiest place in Qatar opened its doors last December 10, 2016. With most of the employees still having their weekend break, many people flocked to Mall of Qatar to witness the opening of the country’s biggest mall to date. Surprisingly, there are already a lot of retail shops and wide array of restaurants that are open. Here’s a photo blog uploaded straight from my mobile.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: “While on the road, watchout for the signs. While inside the shops, watchout for your expenses. If you are hungry, make sure you have decided where to go… you may not be able to decide where to eat.”
With the so many road constructions going on towards Dukhan area, either from Qatar Foundation or from Al Rayyan Road, it can easily confuse drivers especially if big trucks are right infront of you. But with the help of waze and watchful eyes for small signages, you will surely reach in no time.
But what impresses me is the development of the Dukhan Road… very far from how it looked like few years back when im still assigned at the Camel Race Track in Shahaniya. Once all completed, it will definitely make driving to and from the Mall of Qatar very easy from any points of Qatar. Soon, it will even attract regular visitors and tourists once the Doha Metro and one of the World Cup Stadium is in place.
UPDATE: We can expect that Mall of Qatar will even surpass the festive celebration of yesterday’s soft opening when they schedule the GRAND OPENING sometime on February 2017.
