Doha Qatar

Doha's transformation into a premier Gulf city has seen many ages, from its legacy as a pearling and fishing village at the beginning of the 20th century to the ultra-modern business hub it is today. The rapidly developing city showcases a skyline of futuristic high-rises lined up against the coast of the Persian Gulf, best admired through a traditional ‘dhow’ cruise or a walk along the Doha Corniche.

Adventure sports in Doha are all about its sand, sky and sea. The dramatic terrain of Doha’s deserts makes it an ideal destination for dune bashing and quad biking. You can enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city from a relaxed hot-air balloon ride or by freefalling from a plane with your skydiving instructor. To experience the beauty of Qatar’s shoreline and clear waters, you can give water sports such as surfing, kayaking and scuba diving a go.

The capital city of Qatar welcomes all types of travellers and shoppers. You can take a stroll along the winding lanes and mud-daubed structures of the Souq Waqif, a marketplace that sells handicrafts, spices and souvenirs. Steering away from the traditional market, you can explore high-street and luxury brands at plush arcades such as the Villaggio, Mall of Qatar and Lagoona Mall.
