What to see in Doha

Doha Attractions


Doha offers a range of sightseeing activities. Visitors can enjoy the traditional souqs or stroll along the Corniche at sunset. Palm Tree Island, which is only a short boat trip away, is always popular with sunbathers. Doha has a range of museums and galleries offering respite from the desert heat, some of the most popular museums include the National Museum and Doha Fort. The Ethnographic Museum and the swords and knives on display at the Weaponry Museum are equally fascinating, and offer visitors a glimpse into the history of this proud country. Some of the enticing excursions out of the city offer visitors the chance to see the Arabian Oryx, camel rides and racing as well as the stark beauty of the seemingly endless stretch of dune scenery.
