Top 10 Ideas for travelling Doha on a stopover

Last night Tom and I booked our flights for our next adventure, so exciting right?!? We are heading to Bali for three weeks, to enjoy our honeymoon. 

We found pretty cheap flights from Manchester to Bali, with a stopover in Doha for £360 each one way, steal right? We booked with STA Travel and we are flying with Qatar, so get yourselves over there and get some cheap flights booked! We even managed to snag ourselves some extra leg room, as Qatar don’t charge for extra leg room – amazing, they are already my favourite airline.

So let’s kick it off, I’ve spent the morning researching and here are my top 10 ideas for travelling Doha on a stopover:

  1. Check out the amazing markets
    The Souq Waqif is the only traditional standing market, and apparently sells a wide variation of stuff. This is definitely something we will be checking out, I love a good market! Also, if you love Jewellery why not check out, Gold Souq, I’ve heard this is the place to go for jewellery lovers.
    Cost: FREE to visit market
  2. Dive into art & culture
    The Museum of Islamic Art has some amazing reviews, being the top on Trip Advisor must stand for something right! Why not try Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art as well!

  3. Take a lovely walk
    The Corniche is a waterfront promenade/path giving you some of the most amazing views of the water or the city skyline.
    Cost: FREE
  4. Take a dessert tour
    Definitely, a must do!
    Cost: Half day from £47
  5. Visit museums
    I’ve heard great things about the Msheireb Museums, packed full of history and information!
    Cost: Possibly FREE
  6. See the city from the park
    Catch the city skyline at night from the Sheraton Park or the Dafna Park, and enjoying taking an evening stroll.
    Cost: FREE
  7. Visit the Fort
    It takes around an hour by car, but I definitely won’t want to miss out on the UNESCO heritage site.
    Cost: Unknown
  8. Relax in the Arab Baths/Thermal Spas
    With The Spa being the top rated, it definitely looks like the place to go relax after a few busy days exploring.
    Cost: Dependent on the Spa
  9. Visit the Barzan Tower
    Some great buildings, known as the Watchtowers, another on my list.
    Cost: Unknown
  10. Eat out!
    Always one of my favourites, with so many great restaurants, you definitely won’t be short of places to eat.
