hkskyline's 2017 in Doha

Doha is a great place to break up a long flight between Asia and Europe. The city doesn't have as many attractions as its neighbours, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but the hotel prices are a bargain due to the ongoing blockade. There aren't too many tourists around and the people are very friendly to help you get around. Here is a pot pourri of a quick morning of sightseeing during my Qatar stopover.

























One of the must-do's is to walk along the Corniche, which stretches along the bayfront for a good 7km. I didn't do the entire walk but just a small stretch around the Museum of Islamic Art.











While I stayed in the "old" area, the exciting part of town for skyscraper fans is on the other side of the water at West Bay.



















While nowadays tourism and aviation play a prominent role in the economy, pearling used to be the country's key industry.



Just across from the pearl monument is Souq Waqif, a tidy market and great place for a meal in the cooler parts of the day.

Like Dubai, the best way to appreciate this desert oasis/miracle is by air. Both airports offer wonderful city views on their flight paths.

After my vacation in Europe, I was back in Doha for one night before continuing my journey home. West Bay is the new central business district with lots of colourful skyscrapers and a lovely waterfront promenade as well.
