Pearl in Doha

The Aspire Zone is a large sports complex that is scheduled to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

General Weather

Best Time to Visit

Doha is beautiful throughout the year, but the best time to visit is between the months of October and April. This part of the year has the most moderate weather and you likely won’t have to deal with extreme heat.

Things to Do

Doha is a sprawling city with a lot to offer. As it’s an incredible historic city, there is a lot of history and art to marvel at. You can visit one of Doha’s impressive museums, including the new National Museum of Qatar. Not only is the exterior unique, but the collections inside are fascinating as well. The museum tells the story of Qatar from the very earliest humans who lived in the area to the country’s accomplishments today. 

You can spend an evening at the Doha Corniche, a public walkway and area lined with many things to do. It’s also located next to the Doha Bay, so you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful views while you walk. On one end of the walkway lies the National Museum of Islamic Arts which is a great thing to add to your Doha itinerary.
