How to Spend 3 Days in Doha

How to Spend 3 Days in Doha

With three days to spend in the Qatari capital, you’ll have enough time to explore the colorful souks, visit the world-class museums, head out into the desert for some sun and sand, and spend time visiting the cultural and natural wonders of North Qatar. Here’s how to get the most out of your three days in Doha. 

Day 1: Around Town

Doha is a modern city with a historic heart, and today you’ll explore what makes this city on the Persian Gulf so special. Start the day with a sightseeing tour around town to get a sense of what Doha has to offer. A typical itinerary includes colorful Souq Waqif, man-made Pearl Qatar island, Katara Cultural Village, the Museum of Islamic Art (itself an architectural masterpiece), and the Corniche waterfront promenade. In the afternoon, head back into the souk for a more in-depth exploration; join a local foodie to sample some of the city’s best bites, or take a guided shopping tour in search of jewelry, fabrics, and traditional Qatari handicrafts. Finish your day with a relaxing and romantic sunset cruise aboard a traditional wooden dhow. 

Day 2: Desert Days and Arabian Nights

Now that you’ve experienced the best of urban Doha, head out into the desert for a day of outdoor adventure. With an experienced driver behind the wheel of a 4WD vehicle, spend the day dune bashing, sandboarding, riding a camel across the undulating dunes, or swimming at one of the few spots on Earth where the desert meets the sea. For the ultimate desert experience, opt for an overnight tour for the chance to stargaze far from the city lights and spend the night in a Bedouin-style camp. It’s a great way to learn about Qatar’s desert-dwelling communities. 

Day 3: Northern Qatar

Doha may be Qatar’s biggest city, but there’s plenty to see in the surrounding region as well. Take today to explore the heritage sites of North Qatar. Walk through the seaside cities of Al Khor and Al Thakhira, visit a mangrove forest where flamingos and herons live, and explore the Al Zubara archaeological site, a former fort that has been transformed into a museum. You’ll learn about the area’s pearling industry and how local communities have adapted to these often barren landscapes. Upon your return to Doha, take advantage of your last opportunity to taste Qatari specialties with a quiet dinner at your hotel or a nearby restaurant.
