2 day stay in Doha, what to do at reasonable cost?

Married couple planning visit on way back from Bali. We like decent food and a few drinks (without spending a fotune), and would also like to do a little sight seeing. Any recommendations will be gratefully received.

Thanks,

It depends where about you are staying. I would recommend visiting the Souk Waqif early evening its really pretty and there are some great places to eat. Daytime - it depends what month you are travelling in as its getting hotter and towards June/ July/ August temperatures hit 50 degrees so its best to stay indoors malls etc. The Villagio mall is good to see. It has a lake inside with gondolas, a theme park indoor, an ice skating rink. Outside Villagio is the Aspire Zone with a gorgeous park with lake.

I would also visit the Pearl development. This is an island out at sea like the Palm in Dubai. There are restaurants and coffee shops there as well as very expensive designer shops. Its worth a look.

Souq Waqif is definitely your best bet, i take all our guests there. If your here for a full day then a trip across the dunes and down to the inland sea is well worth it. try Qatar International Adventures for prices, they have a website.

does depend when your coming however as there isnt much air conditioning down there in the desert!
