Dhow Cruise in Doha

We had wandered up and down the Corniche for a few days, hovering rather cluelessly near the Museum of Islamic Art, before we eventually achieved our goal of taking a sunset boat ride around West Bay, with spectacular views of the city skyline.

What finally galvanised us was the presence of my dear old schoolfriend Lisa, a longtime Qatar resident who explained that you just approach a boat captain docked on the Corniche and negotiate with him on price to take you out into the bay. In an impromptu enhancement of the brief sea voyage, our captain blasted out dance music, much to the delight of our children.

Don't miss the chance to do this if you come to Doha - it's a maritime city that must be seen from the water at least once.

That's a fantastic tip, thank you. I'd love to try it and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't when I was in Dubai last year!
