Jetting out into the sea, at the end of Doha's Corniche, is the magnificent Museum of Islamic Art. Even for those travellers who aren't into museums, MIA in Doha is almost more about the building than the collections inside. Winner of a number of international architecture awards and distinctions the building itself is possible the chief attraction. Whether admiring the refections in the water, or getting lost the spiral in the massive atrium, MIA is a sight to behold. Besides, with no admission fee, cranking air conditioning (a welcome reprieve from the outside heat), surprisingly speedy free WiFi and serving some of the best coffee (with a view) in the city, there's really no reason not to go.
