Doha Holidays

Where old meets new

History meets modern day in Doha, Qatar’s glittering capital city and one of the world’s most thriving metropolises.

With a skyline that constantly changes, beautiful beaches, landmark attractions, and desert landscapes – Doha evolves before your eyes. Oozing with style, one moment you’ll find yourself wandering a traditional souq on the hunt for beautiful fabric and spices, and the next you will be stumbling across a contemporary shopping mall. Each corner you turn will offer something new and exciting. Visit museums, galleries, and theatres, before heading off on an overnight desert safari, or enjoy a romantic dinner cruise on an authentic dhow boat. The possibilities are endless.

A trip to Doha perfectly complements a beach escape to the Maldives; enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life before jetting off to your own slice of remote paradise. Or, why not explore more of the Middle East and head to Dubai for a few extra days shopping and sightseeing?
