National & Islamic arts museums (100.00 EUR)
From the pier, board your coach for a 20-minute drive to the Museum of Islamic Art. During the tour, you will visit two newly opened museums in Qatar. They will give you an idea about early life in Qatar, the culture and civilization, when pearl hunting and fishing were the main profession in the country before the discovery of natural oil in 1930s. The Museum of Islamic art is the largest museum in Qatar, and houses one of the biggest collections in the world. It contains many artefacts (metal works, ceramics, textiles, manuscripts and paintings) from the 7th- to the 19th-century, which were used in various countries, such as China, India, Spain, Syria, etc. The building itself was designed by Mr Leoh Ming Pei, the famous Chinese-American architect involved in the construction of the glass pyramid at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Then, you will visit the new National Museum of Qatar. This museum gives voice to the unique story of Qatar and its people, from the earliest times to the present day and onwards towards its future. Designed by French architect, Mr Jean Nouvel, inspired by the local desert rose, symbolically its architecture evokes the desert, its silent and eternal dimension, but also the spirit of modernity and daring that have come along and shaken up what seemed unshakeable. Finally, you will get back to your ship. This tour involves 0.6 mile (1 km) of walking on flat ground and in the museum with some steps. We recommend you wear comfortable walking shoes and protect yourself from the sun. There is no dress code imposed, but we suggest you wear conservative clothing (cover knees and shoulders). On Friday, this tour can only be operated after 3: 00 pm
Discover Doha (100.00 EUR)
From the pier, board your coach and start your panoramic drive of Doha via la Corniche. This long promenade stretches over four miles along the half-moon bay of Doha. Your first stop will be made at the Katara Cultural Village. The entire Katara complex is built in a fusion of oriental architectural and retro-romantic style, different from most of Doha’s new cultural buildings elsewhere in the city. This centre houses an opera, libraries, an amphitheatre, art galleries and other academic facilities, as well as green areas. Then, you will visit the Pearl, pride (or at least one of) of the city. The most glamorous addresses in Qatar are located on these man-made, integrated and sustainable islands of almost four million square metres of reclaimed land divided into 10 architecturally distinct and themed districts. Continue your exploration by discovering the Souq Waqif. You will stroll down the bustling alleys of the Souq Waqif for an authentic taste of traditional commerce, architecture and culture. The maze of small shops offer an array of Middle Eastern merchandise, from spices and seasonal delicacies, such as fresh dates and nuts, to perfumes, ornate jewellery, clothing and handicrafts. Finally, you will visit the Museum of Islamic Art, the largest museum in Qatar, housing one of the biggest collections in the world. It contains many artefacts (metal works, ceramics, textiles, manuscripts or painting) from the 7th- to the 19th- century, which were used in various countries, such as China, India, Spain, Syria, etc. The building itself was designed by Mr Leoh Ming Pei, the famous Chinese-American architect involved in the construction of the glass pyramid at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
