Corniche and dhows
A walk along the Doha Corniche is a gorgeous way to spend a late afternoon. The seven-kilometer promenade stretches across the Persian Gulf in the West Bay from the Sheraton Hotel to the Museum of Islamic Art. You can grab a coffee, fly a kite or take a photo by the iconic pearl shell, a symbol of Qatar's traditional past.
For an unobstructed view of the city's skyline, hop on a dhow (you can't miss them.) At night they're lit up and have an interesting selection of music blaring out, so feel free to bring your own tunes.
