Popular as the shining jewel of Qatar, Doha is Qatar's capital and most populous city. It is located on the coast of the Persian Gulf in the east of the country. Doha is a multicultural city with a stunning and continuously developing skyline, modern lavish shopping malls, world-class architecture and traditional souqs.
Doha is Qatar's fastest-growing city with a rapidly developing economy. The city's landscape is dotted with outlandish high rises and lavish hotels. However, it is still an exciting mix of modern wonders and ancient traditions. Wander through the colourful souks, walk along the corniche with a dazzling view of the harbour, or head out to the Katara Cultural Village, Doha is just waiting to amaze you. There are also some lovely beaches in Doha and endless sands of rolling dunes. With the city all set to host the FIFA World Cup 2022, it is sure to come out on top.
Doha was founded in the 1820s as an outcome of Al Bidda but was largely unheard of till 2004. Since then, the city has undergone a massive makeover due to the enormous oil wealth. As a result, Doha is now considered a world city and is growing globally by leaps and bounds. No other city in the Middle East has seamlessly intertwined its Arab-Islamic roots with the Western appeal.
