Transit in Doha: where to go and what to see in 24, 48 and 72 hours
Evening is for fun
In the lively streets of the Souq Waqif market, you can get acquainted with the local culture and architecture, as well as feel the spirit of a real oriental bazaar. The labyrinth of shops has everything the Middle East has to offer. The Gold Souq and the Falcon Market are close to Souq Waqif. Tourists can take the Embrace Qatar Tour to experience the local flavor. Experience Qatar's rich maritime history on a traditional wooden dhow or cruise along the Corniche for scenic views of the city.
Day one: mangroves and museums
For the adventurous, start your morning kayaking in the mangrove forests of Al Thaqirah, north of the coastal town of Al Khor, or try one of the water sports offered along the Corniche in central Doha.
After a trip to the mangrove forests, take a sightseeing tour of the city, and then visit the famous Museum of Islamic Art, which turned 10 years old in 2018. Designed by architect Bei Yuming, the original museum exhibits world-class Islamic art from the past 14 centuries.
Day Two : dunes, dunes and safaris
On the second day, head south from Doha to one of the UNESCO heritage sites, the Khor Al Adaid (Inland Sea) Nature Reserve. It is one of only two places in the world where the sea penetrates deep into the heart of the desert. There is no road to these calm expanses of water, you can only get here along the sand dunes.
A trip to the Inland Sea can be combined with an extreme safari tour. Ride a camel, go down the dunes on a sandboard or drive a buggy. You can also watch amazing sunsets in the desert and enjoy a barbeque under the starry sky. /f550x700/6i/5z/6i5zdit291k44c8kss0kk48ck.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
