Qatar’s Creepy Abandoned Film Set

If you drive out from Doha for several hours into the Qatari desert, jump off the road and start bumping through rocks and ruts, you’ll pass a very interesting and lonely looking camel corral. Eventually the sand dunes will give way to sand cliffs, and on the horizon will start to rise a truly bizarre sight.

This is “Film City,” a palm tree-laden, beige artificial village built for a film or television series. It’s a contemporary replica of a picturesque ancient Bedouin-style village, completely deserted, with the creepiness factor turned all the way up.
