A MIX BETWEEN TRADITION AND MODERNITY
Doha is a modern Arabic city where different cultures meet. It is an amazing how different nationalities and cultures all meet together in one place by the Arabic Gulf.
The local Qatari traditions and customs are excellent representatives of the Arabic traditions with the local dresses, the gatherings in traditional ‘majlis’ or tents, the camel racings, the falcon breedings, the Ramadan and Eid festivities. One can get carried away by the colours, the spices and smelss or the Arabian oudh and bahour (local perfumes) at the traditional souqs or markets.
At the same time, a great modern hub with high rise buildings, business centres, shopping malls and number of facilities and entertainment areas has been created to cater for different tastes and backgrounds.
Simply, an unique place to be!
