Doha ( DOH )
City Guide, Doha
Qatar's capital city Doha is a very modern and fast developing city. It is forecasted to be one of the prominent cities of the region in the next few years. 80% of the country's population lives in Doha, which is a very effective center from an economic perspective. This young city, founded in 1825, hosted the 2006 Asian Games with the highest attendance in the history of the organization. Doha, which hosted the 2011 AFC Asian Cup, is getting ready to host the 2022 World Cup.
Al Corniche is a shore line where Doha most definitely displays all of its visual beauty. All along this passage surrounding Doha Bay, you can see the beautiful view and the skyscrapers of the city in harmony. Corniche gets crowded especially in the afternoon.
Rumelia Park is located in the Corniche region. In this touristic area, there is a combination of an outdoors theater, art gallery and playgrounds for children. The park presents shopping opportunities with numerous stores as well as great and hearty food at its cafeteria.
Culture and Entertainment
Al Khor Museum was opened right next to the area with the same name on the shore.
There are ruins excavated from the area, which date back to the Neolithic Age until
Middle Bronze Age, on display there. Doha is very rich in terms of museums. The
Orientalists Museum, Weaponry Museum, Sheikh Faisal Collection, and the Museum of
Photography can be mentioned among other spots of culture to visit.
Food and Drink
The diversity of the population in Doha reflects in the variety of food in its cuisine. It is possible to find examples of Indian, Chinese, Phillippine, Thai, Italian, Korean, and -of course- typical Middle Eastern cuisines there. Seafood, especially fish, holds a very important part in the cuisine of Doha. It is possible to find world-class quality dishes in the restaurants of the city's luxurious hotels. There are many locations of the world-renowned American fast food franchises in Doha.
The city center stands out as the place where major stores and shopping centers are located. Shopping centers get crowded in the evening hours due to the high temperature of the city.
