Al Shahhainiya

Overview

Introduction

This inland village hosts camel races October-May. There is a stadium where the races begin and end, but you can also follow the camels in a truck when they are running outside the stadium (a considerable portion of the race). Check English-language newspapers (such as the Gulf Times) to see when races are held. There is also a farm that raises oryx (a type of antelope) near Al Shahhainiya. 20 mi/34 km northwest of Doha.
