Doha

Capital of the newly emerging destination of Qatar, Doha encapsulates the duality of the Gulf, pitting the heritage of the desert-dwelling Bedouin against heady new wealth from oil and gas.

As you disembarking from your flight to Doha, you’ll find the expected skyscraper architecture and luxury malls, but scratch the surface and you’ll find thriving traditions of souks, sociable coffee houses and desert falconry. The ritzy West Bay district is where many of the biggest hotels cluster, though the city’s heart beats louder at Souq Waqif, Doha’s oldest traditional bazaar, now newly revamped and updated but still retaining its buzz and atmosphere. Off the waterfront Corniche, Doha’s world-class Museum of Islamic Art could fill an absorbing half day. As host city for the FIFA World Cup in 2022, among many other major events, Doha is a metropolis with plenty to prove. Although hotels and some restaurants offer alcoholic beverages, the importation of alcohol is prohibited.
