The shining jewel of Qatar, Doha is a multicultural city, home to most of the country's population as well as expatriate communities from a range of origins. Shopping abounds in the city's plentiful malls, while the Corniche impresses visitors with picturesque architecture and dazzling views of the harbor.
Qatar is a country which is in the process of rapid growth and Doha, the capital and main city, changes exponentially every month. Luxury hotels, spas, world class restaurants, malls and architecturally unusual buildings sprout up constantly.
Sport, cultural offerings and leisure activities are the areas which are changing most rapidly, yet in the midst of this future-oriented change, there’s a strong push to retain a connection to the past. Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup, the first country in the Middle East to do so, in 2022. Alongside the cutting-edge modernity, there’s still a chance to shop in vibrant souqs and markets, explore fascinating heritage sites and attend top-class equestrian events.
