Doha is the capital of Qatar on the Persian Gulf. It was a tiny village before oil production began in 1949. It houses Gold Souk situated across Ali Bin Abdulla Street. The souk is the best place to find top quality gold where it is sold by gram and the price is based on the carat content and design and craftmanship. A classy complex, Al Sadd Plaza is probably every Doha shopper's dream. Home to stores like Salam Plaza and Blue Salon, one would find some of the most exclusive jewelry and cosmetic shops here.
Must-sees are Doha Golf Club's 18-hole championship golf course (host to the PGA tournament each year), the Khalifa Tennis Stadium where both the ATP Qatar Open Tournament and ATP Seniors are held, Aladdin's Kingdom theme park and Arabian Horse Farm.
