  1. I’ve never been to Al Hazm Mall. My friends told me it was fabulous, excellent food and calm atmosphere. I will definitely visit it soon.


  2. I have never been in Alkhor Mall. This blog entry is very helpful to explore. How about Dar Al Salam Mall? I thought it will be included. It was the first mall I visited here in Qatar.

  4. We haven’t been to Al Hazm mall now that it’s open. Though we saw a glimpse of it’s interior during construction. We’ll visit Bsquare mall and 01Mall next time. Recently there is a newly opened 02Mall in new Salata.

  5. I personally like going to Mall of Qatar. I like the ambiance & food choices available. My wife loves GULF Mall because you can get good deals in Gulf Mall for shopping. VOX Cinemas in Doha Festival City is amazing.My daughters love Gondolania Theme Park in Villagio Mall.

  9. Villagio ! DFC is the mall i like , but would like to visit this al hazm mall , i hear some news that if you will visit this mall you should wear abaya , is it true sir ? or it was just rumors .


  10. I have visited all these malls but I like villagio mall as it’s close to my place it’s a complete package from food to leisure activities


  11. Just last night, we visited Al Hazm mall, its an outdoor mall, fully tiled, lighted with full of locals henceforth mallers and on black(abaya) and white (thobe).
    Ambiance are so inviting but food are so hefty 🙁 being surrounded by high end resto. My kids enjoyed strolling under the moon and stars (though we aint find any 😅) though we still thinking of we still intend to go back there 🤣

    Liked by 1 person
