Top 5 Things To Do

Waterfront Promenade – Take a stroll along Doha’s 7km long waterfront and take in the views of traditional wooden boats alongside the modernistic skyscrapers. The Corniche is in the heart of Doha and has a wide range of cafes and restaurants to watch the world go by.
Al Zubarah Fort – Visit the UNESCO listed Al Zubarah Fort and take in one of the best preserved examples of an 18th – 19th century settlement in the Middle East. Al Zubarah was a prosperous trading town set along the coast, in modern day Qatar.
Museum of Islamic Art – The museum houses one of the largest collections of Islamic art in the world today, taken from three continents. This fascinating museum has been built on its own purpose-built island, set in extensive lawns off the Corniche.

Our Expert Says

Doha is excellent for a few days stopover, very clean and luxurious. So many luxury hotels and guaranteed excellent weather. As a destination they have many hotels as good as Dubai. Doha is a good alternative for somebody who has enjoyed Dubai or Abu Dhabi and is only going to grow in popularity as a destination in the coming years. I recommend getting in early before it becomes a tourist hotspot..
