The star 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. Disembarking from flights 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.

Doha holiday FAQs

What are the best things to do in Doha?

Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world and Doha is its treasure chest. With a burgeoning art scene, an impressive cityscape and luxury hotels, the capital city showcases the best of Qatari culture and hospitality.

In anticipation of the 2022 World Cup, Doha’s deserts have become hotels and sports stadiums. A warm, welcoming city has risen out of an inhospitable land. Once the preserve of stopovers and business trips, now holidays in Doha open up a whole new world in the desert. With temperatures soaring in the summer but settled in the mid-twenties in winter, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor pursuits to enjoy. Explore spicy souks and rippling dunes, dine in glittering skyscrapers and discover Qatari tradition – this religious country requests that you live by its modest set of rules on your visit. This includes watching football; the nation’s favourite sport is always on screen.
