Doha is a rising star of the Middle East – a city on its way to greatness. As it becomes a focal point for global events, the city’s infrastructure and range of attractions is being developed to meet the increasing demand. It’s being built around the historical charms and ancient traditions instead of on top of them, so you end up with modern shopping malls alongside old souqs.

Aside from being the host city for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Doha’s top attractions include the striking Museum of Islamic Art and the grand Souq Waqif. Make sure you head down to the pretty Corniche to see the wooden dhows bobbing in the bay, with towering skyscraper in the background.
