What to do in Doha?

The capital of the desert state of Qatar offers an almost endless choice of leisure activities. For Doha is not just a popular travel destination for conferences, seminars and conventions.

Experience Doha

Doha means 'bay' and is located on the Persian Gulf. So what could make more sense than to pick a fringe programme for your conference attendees with water in mind? A boat trip around 'The Pearl', for instance. Or you might enjoy active recreation on the water. Whether it's stand-up paddling, diving or exploring in kayak – your participants can look forward to a programme packed with active recreation and fun. Are culture and history more your thing? Then we can recommend the archaeological site at Al Zubarah. This is where you will find the forts Al Wajbah and Al Koot and the Barzan Towers. The ancient Al Jassasiya rock carvings are also located here.

By the way, exploring Doha by night is an extra-special treat. Take in the beauty of the city from the water on a trip in a traditional 'dhow' boat. Savour the views of the skyline and admire the stunning architecture. Sail past the luxury yachts moored in the harbour and along the Corniche. Follow your trip up with dinner in one of the many chic restaurants. Your conference attendees will be thrilled.

Whether you go for a traditional fringe programme with a desert safari or camel ride, visit the iconic Souq Waqif bazar or prefer a tour of the city – together we will find the perfect fringe programme for your conference in Doha.
