7 Fun Things to Do in Doha Apart from your satisfying accommodation in Doha, there are also a lot of things that you can do while you're traveling to this business centre and commercial hub of Qatar. Leave your cosy guestroom for a while and discover the amazing experiences that Doha can offer to you. 1. Shop in the world-class malls. Shopping centres such as Landmark and Villagio have a long queue of stores selling local and international products. But if you want high-end brands, you can head to Doha Pearl where glamorous designer boutiques are located. 2. Walk around the city. There is nothing more entertaining than walking around the city and discovering its significant landmarks on foot. Start your journey from Corniche, then head to West Bay where you can have a panoramic view of the sunset and skyscrapers. 3. Taste the varied cuisine. Doha is the perfect place for food lovers due to its wide selection of cuisine to offer to its guests. Some restaurants serve Middle Eastern cuisine, while some cook Western dishes. From fine dining restaurants to street side eateries, travellers can relish any type of meal in many parts of the city. 4. Don't miss the desert. Qatar is known for its vast, dry deserts, so make sure you experience the beautiful scenes and unique things you can discover here before you head back home. Situated about an hour drive away from the city centre, a few establishments provide an ideal spot for those who want to have a glimpse of giant sand dunes. 5. Smoke shisha. Smoking shisha is one of the favourite pastimes of people in Doha. This flavoured waterpipe is available in bars and cafĂŠs around the city. 6. Visit the Museum of Islamic Art Ideally located in Corniche, overlooking the Arabian Gulf, this world-renowned museum houses precious collections of Islamic artefacts such as manuscripts, jewel, glass, ceramics, metals, textiles, ivory, and wood objects. It is open to the public every day from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM. 7. Buy souvenirs at Souq Waqif. Souq Waqif is the most traditional market in Doha, as most local products are sold here. Visitors can buy everything they need in this place, because small shops and stalls sell products at most affordable prices. From exotic spices to clothing, kitchenware, and Arabian fragrances, shoppers have a wide selection of commodities to choose from.
To be able to experience all these fun activities, make sure to book a centrally located hotel in Doha, so you will have an easier time navigating around a new place.
