Doha, the thriving capital of Qatar as well as its most populous and fastest-growing metropolis, is a great way to see a young city in the process of unbridled growth. The city’s establishment as a capital and subsequent master urban planning project only began in earnest in the 1970s, and already it’s classified as a world city and a powerful financial center in the region. Doha has also begun focusing on the growth of its tourism sector, as evidenced by the development of the new Hamad International Airport, built on reclaimed land and opened in 2014, featuring two of the longest runways in the world. Travel to this rising city with our 2015 tours and activities to get the best that Doha has to offer.
Start with a city tour and visit Doha's top attractions over a period of 4 hours. Visit the Equestrian Club or the Royal Stable where you can see the training facilities of Arabian race horses, as well as a horse rehabilitation center, a pool where the majestic animals can wade and relax, and of course a complete race track. Venture to The Pearl-Qatar, an oyster-shaped artificial island currently under construction, where foreign nationals can purchase land. Explore the Museum of Islamic Arts where artifacts dating back 13 centuries can be found. If you're looking to buy spices and souvenirs, visit the Souq Waqif, a traditional Qatari bazaar.
Explore a vast collection of 15,000 Qatari artifacts and ancient Islamic manuscripts at the Sheikh Faisal Museum. See the camel track and watch camel races north of Shahaniya, as well as marveling at the “camel city” where thousands of camels and men live together.
Discover the golden sand dunes of the Qatar desert aboard an all-terrain vehicle on a desert safari tour and see one of only two places where the desert meets the ocean. You’ll get to both drive across the dunes and swim in the warm ocean. If you wish to see the desert at night, you can go on an overnight safari tour where you can have dinner by the bonfire before sleeping in the comforts of a Bedouin camp.
Lastly, discover the aquatic side of Qatar and go on a fishing day trip where you can swim, snorkel and fish like a local aboard a traditional Qatari dhow.
