Villagio Shopping Mall - Qatar

Explored : Dec 27, 2009 #182

 

Quite simply Villagio is the best Mall in Qatar. Although not particularly special on the outside, when you walk inside and look up, the ceilings take your breath away. The ceilings represent the sky and if you didn’t know you were inside you could believe you were outside.

Different areas of the mall represent different times of the day – so you can see sunset, night (complete with street lamps) and day.

But the icing on the cake for this mall is the canal that runs through the centre, complete with gondola. Bridges cross over the canal, and comfortable chairs line its sides for you to rest your feet. What's more, for a few riyals you can travel, Venetian style, up and down the canal.
