Top things to see and do

  • Shop for spices and souvenirs in Souq Waqif – a lively, century-old marketplace along the Doha Corniche.
  • Paddle to a Mangrove Beach Island and relax as you take in the greenery and birdlife of the nature reserve.
  • See herds of Arabian oryx, Qatar’s endangered national animal, at the Oryx Farm and Equestrian Club – only 15km from the city of Doha.
