A vibrant city with its eye on the future

Doha is an ancient city in the midst of a modern renaissance as evidenced by stunning new buildings, resorts, shopping malls, and sporting venues emerging from the desert landscape like a futuristic oasis. And these aren’t just your standard bricks and mortar—there is some serious architectural prowess on display, like the Museum of Islamic Art designed by noted architect IM Pei. Head inside to view priceless Islamic art that spans 1,400 years and three continents, not to mention Alain Ducasse’s restaurant, IDAM.

After a glimpse into the past, make your way to the Souq Waqif, the renovated Arabic market quarter. Wander the maze-like corridors and shop for aromatic spices, colorful textiles, and gold jewelry. Be sure to also visit the falcon market, a symbol of prestige in this part of the world (in fact, falcons often travel with their owners in business class!).

If you’ve looking to unwind after the hustle and bustle of the market, make way for the Al-Corniche, the long seaside promenade that curves around Doha Bay. From here you can catch breathtaking views of the man-made Palm Tree Island and the city’s skyscrapers.
