The city of Doha is located in Qatar, one of the richest states in the world. Hosting several landmarks that attract a significant number of travellers to the city, Doha has been named as one of the ‘New7Wonders Cities’ alongside Beirut, Durban, Havana, Kuala Lumpur, La Paz and Vigan. This has renewed interest in Doha, and this interest, coupled with tourist attractions such as Aladdin’s Kingdom, the Souk Waqif, the Msheireb Enrichment Center and the Doha Corniche Park, has contributed to a significant influx of travellers who seek to explore the area while residing in a luxury hotel in Doha or choose to relax and unwind on an island resort such as Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara among others.
When visiting Doha, exploring the city is paramount and a visit to the Corniche is ideal for a leisurely stroll. The Doha Corniche in Qatar is a significant landmark alongside other attractions such as the Dubai Towers – Doha, the Doha Port, the Qatar National Museum and the Museum of Islamic Art. Having explored the Museum of Islamic Art, tourists can step outside onto a promenade that runs along the Corniche seafront. This promenade is known as the Doha Corniche which begins near the Museum and continues for several miles. Therefore, it makes for a beautiful unimpeded walk with stunning views of the water as well as the skyline of the city, and because it connects to a number of gardens along the way, it is an ideal place to spend a leisurely evening.
The Doha Corniche is also frequented by joggers and cyclists as the promenade is complete with a jogging track and is free of vehicles. A stroll along the pathways at night will certainly make for an unforgettable experience as one would have the opportunity of an unimpeded view of the Doha skyline lit up at night.
