Doha / Qatar
Qatar is a desert state, which rises as a peninsula in the Arabian Gulf. Doha is the capital and the commercial heart of the country. Doha has a seven-kilometer long, beautiful palm-covered beach promenade. Another attraction is the dhow harbor.
The city is a mix of Arabic tradition and modern architecture.
The beautiful island of Al-Safliya can best be reached by a dhow (boat).
The National Museum, where the past and the present of Qatar is illustrated.
During a walk on the coastal road, the beautiful Corniche, you will experience the contrasts of a growing urban skyline and the traditional dhows, which are still used in the harbor for fishing, trade and leisure and lie here side by side.
The Arms Museum offers the opportunity to admire a private collection of ancient swords, guns and cannons of the region.
Highly recommended is a tour of the markets of the city, where everything can be bought from vegetables, fish to camels and in special shops you can even buy hawks.
As completion of the tour you can relax in an original Arabian coffee house.
