What to see and do
Pay a visit to the city’s iconic Doha Corniche. Though the Middle East is known more for its endless stretches of arid, unforgiving desert, the Doha Corniche is located on the eastern coast of the Qatar Peninsula and faces out into the deep blue water of the Persian Gulf. This 7-kilometres waterfront promenade is a lovely, breezy picnic spot as well as a popular route for joggers and walkers.
Once you’re done with the Corniche, go on over to the famous Souq Waqif, or standing market. An open-air bazaar, the Souq is a hip, happening place selling everything you can think of from spices, garments and handicrafts. Founded over a century ago, the Souk was recently renovated in 2006 to preserve the traditional Qatari architecture.
Lastly, visit The Pearl-Qatar, a sprawling man-made island over 4,000,000m2 large. Built on one of Qatar’s major pearl diving sites, the $15 billion project will resemble a string of pearls as an appreciation of the country’s history.
