The city of Doha has risen from the desert at a rate of knots, and has brought with it innovative structures and stunning skyscrapers. Outside of the city itself, my favourite building of them all sits on its own man-made island, attached to the mainland by a promenade, bordered by a lush green park.
It’s perhaps unsurprising that such a wealthy country has developed some rather grandiose facilities for its inhabitants. Decadent and delicious five star hotels have sprung up in abundance, bringing with them expansive gyms, sensational spas, extensive aqua-coloured pools and quite often, their own private beaches. For a price, anybody can come and enjoy these facilities and I am quite convinced that some of them are unparalleled anywhere else in the world.
