Whether you have just 24 hours or a long layover in Doha, you will want to make the most out of your stay which includes taking in one of the many great things to do in Doha at night! In this guide I round up the things I love to do in the evening to make the most of your stay from the most beautiful places to the best eats this guide will have you covered!
Best Things to Do In Doha at Night
1. The Souq
This is a must for any visit to Doha! Definitely not a place to visit in the morning or afternoon because for me the Souq really comes alive in the evening! Whether you want to haggle for bargains, have an authentic meal or simply absorb the atmosphere of the Middle East then you really have to go at night!
2. Museum of Islamic arts
The museums in the Middle East as a standard tend to have later openings but be sure to check for current timings! The museum is a great place to wonder around at night and even holds special free musical events! You can also enjoy the park that surrounds the museum in the cool of the evening all year round!
3. Walk the corniche and marvel at the Doha skyline
The Doha skyline for me is the most impressive in the world! One of my favourite things to do is to stroll from the museum of Islamic arts to west bay simply enjoying the view!
And for something a bit different why not try a dhow cruise around the bay for a different vantage point!
4. Restaurant scene
Doha has an amazing restaurant scene no matter your budget! From street eats in the Souq to high end hotel eateries, you will be spoiled for choice!
Also, despite some misconceptions it is possible to have a drink Doha – check out our guide to Drinking in Doha to find out the rules and best places to have a drink!
5. Night desert safari
Dune bashing is great fun and my favourite time is to go in the afternoon so you can watch the sun set over the dunes!
For something a bit different why not try camping in the Qatari desert!
6. Kayak under the stars
and for the more active among you why not try kayaking under starlight either in west bay or in the mangroves!
