Instead of choosing souvenirs or gifts from Qatar, which are made errrr…. elsewhere in Asia. How about selecting something truly made in Qatar, and to your own special order. The Dromedary Club located on the Salwa & C Ring Road Intersection (known locally as Ramada Signal) will produce a wallet, purse, bag…. well you get the idea. Anything leather. And they can make it out of camel or horse leather for you.
It’s not while you wait, as there is an order book. But you can watch items being made, and if you want to, you can arrange to visit while your order is being made. Just be aware you need to think about ordering your gift/souvenir a little in advance. Perhaps even ordering before arriving in Qatar.
It is my absolute belief that Hameed Hamad Taryam Store located in Dar Al Salam Mall, Abu Hamour. Is almost certainly the cheapest place to buy perfume and Cologne in Qatar. And the savings are not small savings. If you are looking to purchase cologne as gifts, or even for yourself of course. It is well worth a taxi ride to Dar Al Salam Mall to get what you need there.
Last week I spotted Davidoff Cool Water in Lulu Supermarket for only QR 99 (GBP 21.41 – USD 27.19). Which I thought was a complete bargain. It normally retails at QR 129 (GBP 27.90 – USD 35.43) so I bought a bottle there and then as I hadn’t had time to get over to Dar Al Salam Mall, which is where I usually buy my smellies. I was very pleased with the saving until the next day. Having been nowhere near Dar Al Salam Mall for months, the very next day I found myself driving past it. So I popped in. Went to the 1st floor and headed for Hameed Hamad Taryam. Damn it!! Same bottle of Davidoff Cool Water purchased in Lulu was only QR 80 (GBP 17.30 – USD 21.97) there.
expensive smellies that I treat myself to much less often. Are usually 40 to
50% cheaper in Hameed Hamad Taryam. I strongly recommend a visit. And no I am
not sponsored by them in any way. And have had no freebies off of them. Just
good service and brilliant prices.
