AL KHOR (الخور)

We made a short stop in the city just 50 kilometers north of Doha to see its fish market. Once famous as a center for the pearling industry, Al Khor is a pleasant, sleepy town with an attractive corniche, a small dhow yard, and a little fish market. In November 2022, all 20 outlets from the old fish market have been shifted to the new one. It’s clean and so blue🙃, so if you are passing by, stop for a few minutes; otherwise, it’s not worth a drive from Doha.
