Things to do in Doha:

† The sweet scent of shisha (flavored waterpipes) wafts through the air at
the Souq Waqif, an old Arabic marketplace recently rebuilt in its original
style. People flock here at night to eat dinner and shop for spices,
jewelry, pashminas -- even Christmas ornaments. Head over to the falcon wing
to watch wealthy sheikhs pay upward of $2,000 for these status symbol birds
of prey.
† For some desert thrills, go "dune bashing." Gulf Adventures can take you
on a wild ride in a 4 x 4 over the steep sand dunes to the Inland Sea near
the Saudi border. People also can rent ATVs and spend the night in a Bedouin
camp in the desert; gulf-adventures.com.
