Doha named in top 30 among "The World's 100 Best Cities' for 2023

Qatar has its sights set on becoming the next tourism hot spot in the Middle East, with Doha as its crown jewel.

In less than a century, Qatar went from a poor UK colony with a dwindling fishing industry to an independent nation that today is the richest state per capita in the world -with booming infrastructure development to match.

Doha is tops globally for GDP per Capita, Employment Rate and our overall Prosperity category. With shrewd investment of oil wealth, the Qatar Investment Authority is estimated to be worth almost $450 billion. A flurry of investment means new highways, a metro system, universities, the 1.M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art and the breathtaking new National Museum of Qatar, which, when it opened, inspired the New York Times to say, "Skip the Vatican Museum. Go to the National Museum of Qatar instead."

November's 2022 FIFA World Cup not only showcased new stadiums like the Lusail Iconic Stadium (the 86,000-seat World Cup Final host venue created by famed British architects Foster + Partners in Doha's $45-billion new

Lusail district), but also an astounding 100+ new hotels in and around the city, from the Fairmont and Raffles Doha housed right in the U-shaped Katara Tower to two (two!) Waldorf Astoria properties.
