Things To Do

Plan the perfect city break in Qatar

Enjoy a truly inspiring city break in Doha

Doha is a compact destination, allowing solo travellers to enjoy the city and its offerings.

Relax and rejuvenate in Doha 


Relax by your hotel pool or spend time at the spa

Begin the day by relaxing poolside at your hotel, or indulge in a relaxing massage at one of the numerous spas in the city.


Experience the Katara Cultural Village

Head to Katara Cultural Village. Home to shops, galleries, theatres, concert halls, and a multitude of cafes and restaurants, it’s easy to lose oneself here.  Look out for exhibitions, festivals, or performances by the Qatar Philharmonic or visiting artists.  

Experience the highlights of the city


Start at the Museum of Islamic Art or the National Museum of Qatar for some awe-inspiring architecture and to learn about Qatar’s past, before exploring its present. 


Next, head to Souq Waqif, which is vibrant with living history and keepsakes. Built on the site of an ancient market, Souq Waqif is where travellers can hold a falcon in their hand or feel like Midas in the shimmering alleys of the gold souq. 


Dhow boat dinner cruise

End the day on a traditional wooden dhow boat, where, along with views of the Corniche – Doha’s central promenade, you will be treated to a dinner buffet that is bound to satisfy your cravings after a long day of exploring. 

Shop and dine in luxury


Experience pure luxury at Al Hazm Mall

Al Hazm means “the higher grounds” in the Qatari dialect and this exquisitely designed mall certainly delivers an elevated experience.   Continue on to Villaggio, which is Qatar’s most compact destination for luxury stores, all within a Venetian inspired mall.  


Dine in style

End with a sumptuous dinner at one of Qatar’s decadent eateries. A fascinating destination for food enthusiasts, Qatar’s diverse culinary scene offers plenty of choice - from Michelin-starred restaurants to traditional Qatari cuisine and flavourful street food.
