Located in Doha, Qatar’s cosmopolitan island capital, the Villaggio Mall is probably the best shopping mall in the country. It is exquisitely designed and is not merely a shopping destination but a place where memories are made. The mall has over one hundred thousand square metres of retail space and is a haven for shoppers. The upscale shopping mall is home to some of the most popular retail chains on the planet. Whether one is looking for books, electronics, jewellery or clothes, one will be able to find it at the Villaggio Mall.

Even if one does not plan on buying anything, the mall is still a fun place to visit. One can go window shopping or take part in the entertainment options available at the mall. This includes a skating rink, a massive theatre with thirteen screens, and a large indoor theme park. The park contains a highly fun bowling alley, bumper cars, and a thrilling go kart racing track. After walking around and trying out the different activities available here, one can grab a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many terrific restaurants located inside.

Before leaving the Villaggio Mall, all visitors must take a gondola ride. There is a long indoor canal running across the mall. The canal is roughly one hundred and fifty metres long so the ride does not last very long. However, the canal coupled with the stunningly decorated surroundings will conjure images of Venice (which is the intended effect).

Qatar, an oil rich nation, is one of the most developed countries in the Middle East. It has recently become a popular tourist destination amongst those who want to explore the Middle East region.
