The Doha Zoo

When in Doha, the plethora of attractions that you will be able to visit will certainly be plenty. Out of the many fun and fascinating things you can do in Doha, one of the most family friendly places you can go is the Doha Zoo. Located on the outskirts of Doha, a thirty-minute ride from the city centre will take you there. Featuring over 1500 animals in 150 different species you find giraffes, zebras, elephants, gazelles, deer, baboons and many more here. The Oryx, which is the national animal of Qatar and a highly endangered species, can also be seen here at the zoo. The location of the hotel that you plan to stay at is one of the most important factors of your holiday that will largely influence the experience that you will have in the city. If you decide to stay at a hotel that does not guarantee a centralized location, you will indeed experience quite a lot of hassle and inconvenience when you wish to explore the city and its many marvels. There are plenty of Doha resorts such as the Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara makes a fantastic choice if you are on the lookout for luxury, modern amenities and easy access to Doha's most celebrated attractions.

Doha Film City

Another must visit is the Doha Film City; it is a modern day recreation of an ancient Arabic village found in a desert canyon in the Zekreet peninsula of Doha. One of the most fascinating things about Film City is the fact that it is completely deserted.

Featuring massive palm trees, an arid landscape and plenty of historic recreations, the Doha Film City offers plenty to explore.
