Visit the Museum of Islamic Art

Pei, it opened in 2008 and is located on its very own island. It features art from three continents from the 7th to the 19th century. Although the building itself is modern in its design, it takes inspiration from traditional Islamic architecture, including the Ibn Tulun Mosque in Cairo. As well as the exhibitions, you can watch performances of classical chamber music and Arabic music. There are also events in the park surrounding the museum.
Enjoy the High Life in Doha
Doha is a fantastic place to explore if you want to enjoy a luxury vacation. If you love to shop, you can wind your way through the traditional souqs (markets). The Souq Waqif is often regarded as the best. Or you might want to check out the Villagio Mall, an Italian themed mall with over 200 stores and an indoor canal with gondolas. You can find other malls and fine dining, as well as plenty of five-star restaurants by the water.
Explore the Desert in Style
