How Beautiful is Doha, the capital city of Qatar
CCNPIC www.ccnpic.com  By Nestor

Doha, the capital city of Qatar, is situated on the bank of the Arabian Gulf. Earlier Doha was known as one of the busy pearl fishing villages in the South East Arabia of Persian Gulf. It was till recently when the oil production began in 1949, it got a facelift to present itself as one of the most important trade centres of the region. This picturesque, tiny deep water port is one of the most important cities of Middle East today. 

 

Doha is the heart of Qatar, with most of the population living in the city. The beautiful city is filled with plenty of things to do. The city has a very laid back atmosphere. Ever since Doha began oil production, it has been one of the mainstays of this business. Having one of the busiest ports of the Gulf region, Doha has emerged as a major commercial center as well.


When you travel to Doha, you will be amazed by the unforced fusion of modernity and traditionalism. On the one hand you will find skyrocketing buildings housing the most modern offices, and on the other you will see Burkha-clad women on the streets. This aspect of Doha travel has fascinated many a tourist.

 

This Arab boomtown has some impressive sights to see. The National Museum, housed in a former palace, reopened in 2006 after a thorough renovation. The former ethnographic museum, now enclosed by the Al Najada shopping complex, offers a glimpse of what life was like before the oil boom. A traditional wind tower rises above one corner of the building. Other sites around town include a clock tower, zoological gardens, the Doha fort, traditional bazaars and more than 260 mosques.
