Hey Everyone ! Its time for a new travel diary post and this time , we took a trip to the richest country in the world DOHA,Qatar! So, if you are a frequent traveler of Qatar airways, you ‘ll know that to get to most of the nearby countries you ‘ll be making a stop in Doha. We decided to book a weekend trip to Doha this time, with our 2 year old. I created my itinerary for 3 days , keeping my two year old Azlan in mind. The other important thing to remember is the time difference specially, if you are traveling from North America.
Some of the must things to do are as follow and most of these were on my itinerary.
- Museum Of Islamic Art
- Souq Waqif
- Villagio Mall
- Dhow Boat Trip
- The Pearl Monument
- Katara Beach /Cultural Center
- Grand Mosque Of Doha
- Walk on Corniche
- Khor Al Udeid Beach
I am pleased to announce with a 12 hour difference in time and a toddler we were able to visit most of the these places. We visited the malls and restaurants and with a toddler I wasn’t always able to take photos of everything and we were waking up pretty late lol. So here is an overview of how it all started ….We arrived in Doha around evening and about the time we checked into our room it was quite late around 11:00 PM. We stayed at the amazing Marriott Marquis Doha City Center. I will be doing a separate post regarding our stay at the hotel.
The next morning we got up and went for breakfast at the executive lounge of Marriott Doha. It had spectacular views to offer along with an interesting choice of breakfast. You ‘ll see the photographs below.
To request this baby bed you have to call your airline ahead of time.
AT THE AIRPORT
Marriott Marquis Doha City Center
- Before heading to Souq Waqif we took a cab to the Museum of Islamic Art which is open until 7 pm every evening and has no entry free. Its a great place to take a walk and enjoy with your kids but especially to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
- Afterwards we took a cab to the lively street life at Souq Waqif, Its a great place to walk to shop, eat and buy souvenirs. They have plenty of restaurants that you can choose from to enjoy a great dinner.We stopped at The Village to enjoy our dinner.
Katara Beach/ Cultural Center is a must go if you are traveling with kids. We took a cab here from our hotel and we almost spent more then half a day here because Azlan didn’t want to leave. Its a kid friendly beach and offers instagram worthy views of the Doha Skyline.
