Ideas for Your Vacation
For 11 days, you’ll split your time between three major cities in Qatar and Thailand. A half-day tour at each stop orients you with your surroundings before you’re free to explore at your own leisure. In Doha, the capital of Qatar, you can walk the bustling alleys of the best souqs in the Arabian Peninsula and explore the fascinating Museum of Islamic Art. Doha is a fascinating blend of ancient and modern. You’ll then make your way to Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, home to a dazzling assortment of temples and statues, including the Emerald Buddha.
- Museum of Islamic Art (Doha): Designed by the famous architect, IM Pei, this five-story museum showcases more than 14 centuries of Islamic art from the region
- Souq Waqif (Doha): Breathe in the spice-scented air in this traditional Arabic market, and catch a glimpse of the falcons at the falcon shops.
- The Pearl-Qatar (Doha): an artificial island spanning nearly 1,000 acres, where high-end shops are lining up along the Porto Arabia Boardwalk.
- Katara Cultural Village (Doha): where the grace of the past meets the splendor of the future.
- Grand Palace (Bangkok): This architectural masterpiece, constructed in 1782, housed Thai kings for nearly 150 years. Topped with golden spires, the complex sprawls across more than 2.3 million square feet.
- Ratchada Grand Theatre (Bangkok): Its nightly Siam Niramit show recounts 700 years of history with elaborate sets, special effects, and more than 100 performers—including elephants.
- Wat Phra Thong (Phuket): This temple houses a golden Buddha, but you can only see its head and torso. Legend has it that illness will befall those who try to unearth any more of the gilded statue.
