What to do in Doha

Explore a water world

The traditional wooden boats that have chugged up and down the Arabian Gulf for centuries are a great way to cruise Doha’s bays and shoreline. But you can also try more active water pastimes: try sunset kayaking, exploring the nearby mangroves by boat, or paddle boarding around the canals of the exclusive Pearl Island. Entalek EcoAdventures are a good place to start.

Al Rehab Compound

Explore Al Zubarah Town and Fort

If you’re staying for a while in Doha, head north to the Unesco World Heritage site Al Zubarah Town and Fort, the last remaining place to see an Arabian pearling town. Naturally, sand dunes are never far away, so go to Khor Al Adei for sandboarding or Bedouin camping.

Visit Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Islamic Art rightly takes the plaudits for its all-encompassing look at cultural history, but Mathaf has been promoting modern contemporary Arab art for some time now. A place to understand more recent artistic developments, there’s a fantastic programme of temporary exhibitions as well as a thought-provoking permanent collection.

Visit Katara Cultural Village

A cultural quarter designed to look like a traditional Qatari village, there’s always something interesting happening at Katara – think craft markets, art exhibitions, films, orchestras or operas. Check out the acoustics of its Roman-style amphitheatre and then relax on its beach or in one of the many restaurants and cafes.

Stroll down Doha Corniche

Doha’s answer to the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, this attractive four-mile walkway along the waterfront has restaurants, a fish market, the Museum of Islamic Art Park and plenty of places to sit and take in the view across the sea. It's very popular with joggers and cyclists during the cooler months. The nearby Al Bidda Park is one of Doha’s oldest and most popular.

Browse the Museum of Islamic Art

If you do only one thing in Doha, visit this incredible museum. Designed by Chinese architect I.M. Pei, the angular building is almost as unique as its contents: a collection of Islamic objects, jewellery, ceramics and art from across the centuries. Its restaurant, IDAM, just happens to be among the best in Doha too.

Where to eat in Doha

Tangia (Middle Eastern/North African)

If an authentic taste of the Middle East or North Africa is what you want, then Tangia’s array of traditional Moroccan dishes will more than satisfy. Set in the Wyndham Grand Regency hotel, a refurbishment has taken this atmospheric and award-winning restaurant to another level.

Market by Jean-Georges (International)

Another celebrity chef in a Doha hotel, Jean-Georges Vongerichten has made this lively restaurant one of the coolest places to dine in the city. International cuisine mixes wonderfully with local flavours in dishes such as sautéed Omani lobster, but it’s also the kind of place where you can get a good burger.

IDAM by Alain Ducasse (French)

Award-winning French Chef Alain Ducasse has had fun with a menu that mixes the best of Mediterranean and Arabian flavours. You may well have eaten camel, but not in the way Ducasse and Chef Frederic Larquemin present it, in the beautiful surroundings of the Museum of Islamic Art.

Hakkasan Doha (Cantonese)

Gordon Ramsay (International)

The St. Regis Hotel, where this fine restaurant is based, calls a meal here ‘a theatre for the senses’. If dishes such as butter truffle French guinea fowl with pea puree, chestnuts and mushrooms sound like too much, you can always eat in the more relaxed bistro surroundings of neighbouring restaurant Opal, which has a gourmet pizza station.

An iconic building on Doha’s skyline, The Torch is in the city’s sport zone, making it all the more attractive in the build-up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
