April 18, 2014 In October 2013, I was able to visit Doha for the first time making Qatar my 35th visited land. Here are my tips when travelling to this interesting land.


Museum of Islamic Art: This museum has one of the best collections of Islamic art. Definitely a must visit when in Doha.


Fanar Islamic Cultural Center: I did not have the time to go inside but try to do so when you have the time. Also, the spiral tower is just beautiful.

The skyline: Due to heavy traffic, I was not able to visit the Corniche, but I hope to visit it next time.

Gold Souq: Yes, there is plenty of gold in the Middle East, and they are a lot cheaper too.

Soug Waqif: It literally means "The Standing Market". This market is renowned for selling traditional garments and handicrafts. Lots of restaurants and cafes too.

Watching the sunset: Isn't it lovely?

The Shopping Malls: I know, they don't have the likes of Dubai Mall or Mall of the Emirates here but the malls in Doha are still worth visiting.
