Film City
In the desert of the Brouq or Zekreet peninsula, not far from the sea, you’ll find a real ghost town. No one lives in it and yet it is well kept. It is called Film City, and is a purely artificial city. It was built for an Arabic TV series. Close by is another ghost town: Mystery Village which was used in the same TV series. Despite the long drive from Doha (80 km) it is relatively easy to reach with a 4×4 car. Wildlife in the neighborhood (Oryx and ostriches) is a delight for kids and offers great photo opportunities.
Kindly note that at the moment this place is closed for renovations

Shahzeb gave us an excellent tour. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed seeing the Richard Serra work in the middle of the day with no shadows. Very stark amd strong. Will come back at sunset next time.

What a fantastic tour, what a phenomenal day! One of my best travel experiences ever! I will never forget how moving and amazing it was to see the Richard Serra sculptures and the desert from upclose. No other tour ever gave me such a fulfilling desert exterience. The rock formations are more impressive than they look in the picture, and there's many, many of them.

I also reiterate what I said in another review, that Adnan is the best guide I've ever had in many years of travel. I learnt so much from him that I can hardly express my gratitude. He was flexible with my requests for stops, and drove incredibly well in the middle of the desert. You won't find other guides who knows as much about Qatar and make you feel more welcome here.

The place is fantastic, but Adnan made it even more special. Not to be missed.

Shahzeb is an excellent guide. I took the 4am trip option and recommend it as it’s much cooler temperature, you get the beautiful sunrise, and there was no one else at the Serra sculpture. Shahzeb was attentive throughout and gave excellent local knowledge during the trip. Had a super ace time.
