Qatar's capital Doha is home to bazaars, historical sites and a photogenic waterfront promenade. Those traveling on Doha cruises in the Middle East might want to take shore excursions farther afield to the desert or the Pearl -- a nearby manmade resort island. View Arabic antiquities at Doha's Museum of Islamic Art or visit the antique shops and cafes in the city's ancient Souq Waqif market.
Tourists to Doha should be aware of local customs, as Qatar is a Muslim country with conservative traditions. Women should pack headscarfs, and visitors may not bring alcohol into the country.
