Book a flight to Mogadishu with Qatar Airways

The ancient city of Mogadishu has undergone immense changes over the past few years. However, dig underneath the modern, newly developed city blocks and you will find plenty of historical interest to discover.

While still very much off the usual tourist trail, a trip to Mogadishu will inspire and delight in equal measure. A beautiful old town and a wealth of Italian colonial influences are the inspiration for town planners, who have taken elements of the past and incorporated them into the new Mogadishu.

Book a flight to Mogadishu with Qatar Airways and discover an up-and-coming, dynamic and welcoming destination.

Mogadishu highlights

The city is an eclectic mix of Italian colonial architecture sitting side by side with traditional African markets and sandy, tranquil beaches.

  • Tourist attractions

    The National Museum of Somalia is perhaps the best place to get a real feel for the history and culture of this complex region. The museum re-opened in 2014, and currently hosts several exhibitions of cultural artefacts that document the life, history and culture of the Somali people.

    The Mosque of Islamic Solidarity is one of the main buildings in the city, and has been lovingly restored. It’s a focal point of life in the city, and the call to prayer rings out across the hustle and bustle of modern life.

    The centre for culture is the National Theatre of Somalia, which is showcasing Mogadishu as a major centre for the performing arts in this part of Africa, bringing new and exciting performances to the city.

  • Leisure activities

    Mogadishu has several excellent beaches, the best of which include Gezira beach and Warsheekh beach. The sands are clean and the waters are warm and shallow, making it the perfect spot for a paddle. 

    Somalis are passionate about football, and the Mogadishu Stadium is the home of the Somalia Cup and the league. There are two other large stadiums in the city, the Banadir Stadium and the Konis Stadium. Catch a match and get a glimpse of just how much the locals love their football on a Saturday afternoon.

    Music is undergoing a revival in the city, and small live music venues are springing up, as well as open-air concerts and festivals designed to bring international musicians and dancers to the city.  

  • Food

    Somali cuisine is unique and distinctive. Start the day with canjeero, a thin, pancake-like bread that’s eaten with a variety of meats, stew or soup. The Italian influence still has a big impact on Somali cuisine, so you will find a lot of pasta dishes on offer, particularly spaghetti and rice served together with meat and vegetables. For a grab-and-go snack, look out for the Somali version of samosas spiced with hot chilis. 

  • Shopping

    Head to the Bakaara Market, the largest market in the whole of Somalia. Explore the labyrinthine market with a guide, rather than on your own, to get the best experience and to help you navigate your way through the maze of stalls and shops.
