The Museum of Islamic Art, an iconic building in the Doha waterfront, houses a very large collection of masterpieces of Islamic art, including ceramics, coins, jewelries, glass, manuscripts, metalwork, woodwork and textiles.  It was said to be the one of the world’s most

9495_10151290564872707_751428522_ncomplete collections of Islamic artifacts, with items originating from Spain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, India and Central Asia.

The Museum has a high-class restaurant on its Ground Floor, offering a dining experience of French Mediterranean cuisine with an Arabic twist.

Adjacent to the Museum is the MIA Park, where you can stroll or jog around, picnic with family and friends, or just relax with the spectacular beauty of Doha skyline especially during sunrise, sunset or at night.

The MIA Park also has a Park Café, bicycle for hire for adults and children, children’s playground and paddle boats.

Sunrise

 

I always love to take a photograph of the the sun either during sunrise or sunset. But from all of my recent sun shots, this sunrise photograph taken at Doha, Corniche last Friday morning of September 21, 2012 is so far the best. I know that it is still not a perfect shot compared to the works of professional photographers, but it doesn’t look bad anymore.

On that Friday morning, we went to Corniche to have a walk with some friends and do fishing.  It was just a very good timing that when I get off the car, I already notice that the sun is just about to rise and so I grab my camera and took this shot. 🙂

The Pearl Qatar

The first time we tried to visit The Pearl in 2010, we were on a Mitsubishi L-200 4×4 (a pick up truck as they are called) and to our dismay, we were not allowed by the guard to enter the gate as pick up trucks are not allowed in this most glamorous address in Doha.

The Pearl is a Riviera-style man-made island developed in an exclusive environment in Doha,Qatar.  The name “The Pearl” was chosen because the island was located on one of Qatar’s previous major pearl diving sites. It is the first land in Qatar to be available for freehold ownership by foreign nationals.  

It has the world’s longest waterfront luxury retail walkway, a 3.5 kilometer marina-front pedestrian boardwalk “La Croisette”, which homes the international hospitality brands and high-end boutiques.

Burj Qatar

Burj Qatar is a 232 meters high cylindrical complex office tower in West Bay and one of the skyscrapers in Doha. This 44-storey  building was designed by a French Architect Jean Nouvel.  Though it has a unique architectural design, it is very similar with Torre Agbar in Barcelona, Spain designed by the same architect.

Burj Qatar… tall, slim and nicely glittering in its silvery laced silhouette against the skyline of Doha.  The facade is composed of a double cladding, a moucharabieh aluminum on the exterior with a reflective glass on the interior layer.
