Doha, capital of the peninsular Arabian Gulf country, Qatar, is a rapidly-developing, modern city that oozes style and confidence. The striking and constantly changing skyline of Doha underlines the significant investment Qatar has made in creating a number of landmark cultural icons. The recently reimagined Souq Waqif, a traditional market, which offers many traditional goods and a heady atmospheric vibe is a true experience.
On its man-made island, the beauty of the spectacular I.M. Pei–designed Museum of Islamic Art is a must see for any visitor. Doha also makes full use of its smart waterfront promenade, Al Corniche, aided by the fact the bay was constructed using landfill to create the alluring crescent.
Strolling around The Pearl Qatar, a high-end, luxury neighbourhood, or exploring Katara Cultural Village located in West Bay Area with its Roman-style public auditorium, museums, galleries and libraries are two popular pastimes.
