Welcome To Doha, Qatar

Ahh, life on the Persian Gulf. The cities are growing quickly and Doha, Qatar is no exception. They're busy combining the wow factor of nearby Dubai with the restrained growth of Muscat in Oman. Let the skyscrapers flourish, but try to hold onto old sections of the city.

The Dubai-like skyline of the business district.


Gotta have a giant saber entrance. 


A lovely promenade park bordering the harbor. What's big in Qatar? Handball. The championships were held there recently.

A look over the promenade park toward the lower density area of Doha.


Doha's most important landmark, the Islamic Museum of Art, building designed by I.M. Pei. Constructing modern Doha.

Feel like you're losing touch with the old ways? No worries, look around and you may run into some camels.
