Doha is seeing large scale development and the impressive skyline is a sure sign of investment by the Qatari government. The city is certainly establishing itself as the premier commercial destination in the Arabian Gulf. Hosting the 2022 FIFA World UP has put the city on the international map. Other interests include real estate investments and sponsorship of leading international football clubs including Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona.
The city is a happy blend of the old and new – traditional souqs co-exist with contemporary shopping malls, 5-start hotels with homely guest houses. From the award-winning Museum of Islamic Art to the bohemian Souq Waqif, from Katara Cultural Village to Education City, Doha has so much to offer the tourist.
