On the weekend we decided to go on another excursion, this time to a place known as Film City. Film City is a mini Arabic town constructed for a television series, located on the Ras Abrouq peninsula, eighty kilometres from Doha.
It is recommended to take a four-wheel-drive vehicle, but we managed to get there in our tiny Suzuki Celerio, the tricky bit is finding the access road, as a new highway has fenced it off.
Film City mimics the traditional mud-brick houses with wooden doors, the town contains small houses, a mosque, plenty of gates and doors and a look-out.
Located on the west coast of the Ras Abrouq peninsula and slightly north of town of Zekreet is the Zekret Fort. The fort is a traditional square design with circular towers in each corner, this design is visible in the restored ruins.
