Villaggio Mall was quite impressing with its indoor amusement park and its channels for gondola rides. It also had a great amount of shops with good prices on western clothing brands. Souq Waqif, which was the local marked was also a good place for shopping. It was a good place to get souvenirs and a good meal in a comfortable environment.
The Corniche is a waterfront promenade and was also a great place to spend the evenings. Lots of local people were sitting in the parks or along the water for a picnic, having a good view of the lit up city center across the water, the many fishing boats drifting by and the museum of islamic art which looked like a floating building that was lit up in the evenings.
