As the capital of wealthy Qatar, Doha is a constantly developing city. It has an important strategic position which has brought it some of the highest standards of living in the Arab world, and the cultural offerings are growing to match the economical prowess. Indeed, Doha was named the Arab Capital of Culture in 2010.
Part of the reason for this is the spectacular Museum of Islamic Art, which breathtakingly sits just off the Corniche, the city’s waterfront promenade. Wander among exhibits that date back over 1,400 years, including ceramics, jewellery, metal work and glass artefacts. Keep an eye on the events calendar to see if there’s a special event or exhibition on while you’re in town.
Adding to the cultural attraction is 2016’s Qatar National Museum, another stunning building architecturally just round the corner from the Museum of Islamic Art. Continue your cultural voyage at the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, the Weaponry Museum with its centuries-old artefacts, or the Msheireb Enrichment Centre.
If you’re looking to snap up some new buys while you’re in Doha, head to the City Center Mall, where you’ll find over 250 stores to browse. For a more traditional experience, wander through the Souq Waqif and search for one-of-a-kind purchases like handmade textiles.
Go for a stroll along the Corniche, take a relaxing boat trip and gaze back at the city from the Persian Gulf, or relax by a stylish pool in the golden sunshine with holidays to Doha from Manchester Airport.
