If you want to have the rare chance of seeing a great city in the making then Doha is where you need to be. Be it the absolutely stunning but always changing skyline or the landmark cultural icons, Doha has much to offer with confidence and style. Doha is soon starting to become the Gulf’s most dynamic city especially due to things like a new Metro system and the 2022 FIFA World Cup which is scheduled to be held here.
Getting the most out of Doha requires you to tap into the lifestyles of the expats and locals. The pace here is always at ease whether its in one of its modern shopping malls or traditional souqs. The Suoq Waqif is especially notable and has traditional garments, spices, handicrafts and souvenirs and even has restaurants and shisha lounges and is about a hundred years old. For a great shopping experience in Doha the massive Villagio is the best. This shopping mall has an indoor Venetian canal complete with gondola’s that take you past jewellery stores and clothing outlets. The Museum of Islamic Art is yet another visit worthy place in Doha and houses exhibits from three continents over 1400 years. If you are visiting during the milder months of October to April make sure to take a walk around the bay at dusk. It starts off at the southern end of the Corniche and goes on towards the West Bay with its futuristic skyscrapers. As night time arrives and you see all the big city lights come on its easy to forget that you are in the middle of the desert.
