Silversea Luxury Cruises To DOHA

DOHA

Extravagant shopping malls, gleaming skyscrapers and mosques studded with intricate carvings all contribute to the Pearl of Qatar's flourishing skyline. A futuristic vision kept grounded by its heritage, this sprawling metropolis's ambitious structures echo the ancient Arabic art that long preceded its rise. Explore the luxurious and fascinating tapestry of interwoven extravagance and tradition that is Doha's trademark, as you soak up the sun, sea and skyline of this ever-sparkling city. Founded in the 1820s, Doha has grown apace from its pearl-farming village origins. View more

A well of oil riches helped to propel the city on its upward trajectory, fuelling a cityscape of twisted metal and glass that shimmers amid the peninsula's desert blaze. Despite the vertical ambitions, you can quickly lose yourself in Doha's tight web of alleyways, as you delve into the oldest souk in Qatar - which swallows visitors up in a cacophony of bartering and bantering. Goods have traded hands here for over a hundred years, and it's still, the place to pick out handfuls of fresh dates and nuts, or perch at restaurants serving up saloona - a heavily spiced and perfumed broth of lamb and soft aubergine. Wander the Corniche's four-mile parade, which unspools at the feet of skyscrapers that glow, jewel-like with multicoloured allure as night descends. You'll walk with the vibrant colours of the Persian Bay stretching out next to you. The palm-tree-lined boulevard culminates in the spectacular Museum of Islamic Art, which stands proudly like a giant, glinting sandcastle. Doha may have blossomed rapidly, but it's clear that the ambition doesn't stop here – and the city's boom continues as its time in the sun of the 2022 FIFA World Cup draws ever closer.
