Visit archaeological sites at Al-Zubarah or take in the high-rises along the coastal Corniche promenade in Doha. Lose yourself looking for bargains to take home from bustling souk markets, then cool off on a boat trip to the islands surrounding the Qatar peninsula.

Browse the Souq Waqif for carpets and jewellery, puff on a fruit-flavoured shisha pipe or sip on some delicious Arabic coffee in the capital Doha. Visit Al Wakra, a former pearling village now a welcoming town, or the Al Zubarah Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Perhaps escape to the salt flats of Khor al-Adaid – an inland sea bordered by sand dunes – for an exciting time in exceptional surroundings.

City breaks in Qatar
Wander the crescent-shaped corniche along the coastline of capital city Doha. The contrast of spectacular skyscrapers and the traditional dhows cruising the bay is a beautiful sight at sunset. Visit the nearby Museum of Islamic Art, a modern block at the tip of the corniche, which showcases both spiritual and secular art. Or journey to the Katara Cultural Village, whose stunning amphitheatre is the home of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.
Things to do in Qatar
Take a desert safari to climb 196-foot-high sand dunes at Khor al-Adaid in a 4x4, or in the city, take an evening cruise in Doha to see the spectacular skyline at night and eat a delicious BBQ on board.
