Doha

Located on the peninsula’s east coast, Doha is Qatar’s capital, the largest and most populous city, home to approximately 80% of the population. As befitting a young and ambitious country with new money, the skyline glitters with superlative skyscrapers and shopping malls, while post-modern structures attached to star-architect names balance traditional motifs - such as the desert rose, ubiquitous Qatari pearl, Islamic geometrics and bell-topped archways - with thought-provoking innovation.
