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. If you are on a short stopover with Qatar Airways in Doha, and like adventure, this is one of the most picturesque places to discover.
EXPLORE FILM CITY
The landscape of the Zekreet peninsula has a unique and fascinating geology. Salt flats, plateau rocks and open desert dominate this scenery. There are no sand dunes here, but bizarre rock formations and great views over the blue waters of the gulf. Shortly before reaching film city you will drive up a slope and see the buildings in the distance. The walled city is rather the size of a village, yet it does feature a main gate and city walls with guard towers on the front. While nothing is authentic, the buildings show how a traditional village in the region might have looked in the past. For the best view continue through to the back and climb the stairs to a covered terrace overlooking the houses and the green oasis in the back. There is a small shop that sells potato chips and bottled water / soda. Photo opportunities, Oryx, Ostriches & spectacular scenery If the weather is nice, you could walk into the oasis next to Film City. An artificial drinking pond sometimes attracts the herd of Oryx grazing nearby. Warning: Even though Oryx are beautiful photo models, they will defend their young ones and might attack if you get closer than 30-40 meters. Thus keep kids supervised.
