  • Capital of Qatar, Doha is a multicultural city with dazzling architecture
  • Doha's Museum of Islamic Art hosts one of the most comprehensive collections of Islamic masterpieces
  • Souq Waqif in Doha has existed in its current location for many centuries
  • Dhows are a still a common sight on the waters of Doha.

Doha is Qatari’s rapidly-developing capital and a landmark of 21st century citymaking located on the Arabian Peninsula. Its glittering skyline of glass skyscrapers rises out of the desert on the country’s eastern coast. With a population of over two million and climbing, the city is growing at such a rate that it almost seems to reinvent itself anew each day. This makes Doha one of the most emblematic cities of our contemporary era. Prior to the oil boom, Doha was a modest port town, but today, it’s one of the wealthiest and most culturally sophisticated spots in the entire region.

The juxtaposition of towering skyscrapers and state of the art museums and galleries with dhows (traditional wooden boats) on the water and bustling souqs (street markets) gives Doha its singular appeal. The Pearl-Qatar in the city’s north, which was built on an old pearl diving site (a cornerstone in the city’s pre-oil economy), stands as an iconic reminder of the city’s modern development. This man-made island stretches 4km into the water and is home to ritzy apartment buildings and commercial properties, including some of the best restaurants in the city.

The Katara Cultural Village, just to the south on the waterfront, is equally emblematic of modern Doha. It’s home to a popular collection of theatres, galleries, museums, and restaurants that defines the city’s cross-cultural appeal. Souq Waqif stands as a reminder of the city’s past. The unofficial centre of the city, this market bustles with visitors and shopkeepers bartering over crafts, textiles, perfumes, and spices. It’s the ideal spot for travellers who want to buy some souvenirs or simply experience a taste of a bygone era.

Beyond its shops and cultural centres, Doha also has some of the most impressive museums in the Middle East. The Museum of Islamic Art has one of the world’s greatest collections of Islamic artifacts, including a prized assortment of Islamic manuscripts. The impressive design of the building, which sits on the water near the Dhow Harbour, is an attraction in itself. The National Museum of Qatar offers a more traditional museum experience, with exhibitions tracing the natural and geopolitical history of the nation and its transformation over the past century.
