Introduction to Doha

Capital and largest city of Qatar, Doha features a population of almost 1,000,000 residents. A small town of the Persian Gulf until the early 19th century, the city begun to grow after the oil rush.

Still under vigorous development, Doha is now doing its best to compete its dazzling neighbours of the UAE. Traditional Arabic souqs (bazaars) and forts mix with futuristic glass skyscrapers, providing the city with a dynamic fusion of Arabian nights and western glory. Although most city attractions focus on Doha’s Arabic heritage, a brand new, well-developed waterfront gives visitors a little preview of the area’s promising future.
