Embrace the arts
Doha may be famous for its giant shopping malls and entertainment centres, but there is also plenty of culture to explore. The stunning Museum of Islamic Art, designed by legendary Chinese architect ¬I.M. Pei has become an icon of the city: rising up above the sea on a man-made island. Inside, there are 1,400 years of art to discover, from sculpture and ceramics to textiles, glassware and priceless paintings, all set against Pei’s soaring, ethereal design.
