Doha is a city that does not immediately come to mind when thinking of travel destinations. This, however, is all about to change. Qatar is fast becoming a destination of choice for people travelling to the Middle East and this is evident in the growing number of choices for Doha tours. Discover all the secrets and promises this budding city has to offer.
Showcasing the Beauty of Islamic Culture
The Museum of Islamic Art is one of the landmark attractions Doha is proud of because it was the first of its kind in all of the Arabian Peninsula. The massive complex is home to what many say is one of the world’s most complete collection of Islamic artifacts and artworks. Unlike other galleries that feature collections solely from the country it operates in, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha features pieces from most of the Muslim world, extending to as far as Central Asia. The extensive collection of items on display makes the museum one of the best places to learn about Islamic architecture, art, and text.
The Pearl of the Middle East
Like its neighbors in the region, Doha is also investing in the creation of artificial islands in a bid to lure in business and higher tourist arrivals. Proof of this is The Pearl-Qatar, a mixed-use development featuring beautiful real estate properties and some of the best food and shopping not only in the country, but in all of the Arabian Peninsula.
The Pearl-Qatar is where you will find some of the more relaxed attractions Doha has to offer including a selection of restaurants and major retail outlets. Whether you are looking to shop for items unique to Doha or hoping to score some great deals on international brands, TPQ is the place to go to get all your shopping done.
If high street shopping is not your cup of tea, then a trip to the Souq Waqif is in order. This major attraction is a stop on most Doha tours because it is where you can shop for genuine goods such as garments, handicrafts, and souvenirs. It is also where you will find restaurants featuring cuisines from all over the world. Souq Waqif is a major regional trading hub, so expect to find a few surprise finds and there as you make your way through the rather large market.
See it All by the Bayside
The Doha Corniche is another essential stop on all Doha tours. This waterfront promenade stretches for several kilometers and is a great spot to view all the very best sights of the city. This spot is great for an afternoon stroll and even better for photo opportunities. Some of the buildings that will serve as your backdrop include the Museum of Islamic Art and the Doha Tower (Burj Doha).
