Experience Boat Tours in Doha

Best things to do in Doha: It may have been given a new lease of life, and new buildings are being constructed every hour it seems, but there’s more to Doha than just those futuristic towers. There’s the Museum of Islamic Art and the Souq Waqif for old-world shops. The National Museum of Qatar is full of exhibits and the seaside development of Katara Cultural Village offers stunning views. For high-end shops and a canal with gondolas, well Villaggio Mall is the place to go.

When to visit: You’ll find that the weather here is more pleasant than you’d expect from a Gulf nation. Yes, summers are very hot, but they are bookended by pleasant weather. Rain is rare, so the high season is between November and March. That’s also when you’ll experience the local culture at its best.

Top tips for visiting Doha: Apart from wearing the right clothing when visiting places, especially religious sites, it's also worth remembering that Doha closes down on Friday mornings. Doha can feel like a ghost town as people attend Friday prayers. Cafes, restaurants and museums don’t open until 1 pm on Fridays.

• You may have noticed, but Qatar is very flat. In fact, it’s the second flattest country in the world. The country's highest point is only 338ft above sea level. The Maldives has the title of the flattest country in the world.

• If you get the chance to visit Khor Adaid, then you are in a very special place. It’s one of the only places in the world where the sea meets the desert. The inland sea, as it is known, is a nature reserve and, well, go and enjoy.

• With such a flat country, cycling is a fantastic way to get around. Not many hills, remember. The Olympic cycling track in Doha holds a world record for the longest continuous path. It’s 33km long. Go on, give it a try
