Walau tidak sehebat Dubai tapi tetap mengkagumkan. Ralit mata memandang binaan binaan dan persekitaran.

Laluan bas berpatah balik tu akan melalui Al Corniche St semula. Aku memang plan nak berhenti tapi sebenarnya aku tak tau nak berhenti kat mana sebab jalan ni macam agak panjang juga. Kang berhenti takut tak jumpa bus stop. Buang masa aku je nanti. 

Masa dah la suntuk ni !

Al Corniche St

Boleh pulak drebar bas tu stop kat situ. Dia kata sebab bas dia laju sangat. Nanti kalau sampai awal ke airport, bos dia marah.

Kena ikut jadual !

Aku ikut kan je. Since dia berhenti.. aku mintak turun ambik gambar sekitar kawasan Al Corniche Street ni....

Bay

Pederstrian park

The Doha Corniche is a waterfront promenade extending for seven kilometers along Doha Bay in the capital city of Doha, the state of Qatar.

Running parallel to the Corniche is Corniche Street, a main thoroughfare which connects Doha's emerging West Bay business district with the south of the city and Doha International Airport. It was formed following extensive dredging work carried out during the late 1970s and early 1980s which reshaped Doha's coastline.

The Corniche used to be an empty stretch of walkway in which the only visible edifice was a Sheraton Hotel, but development has increased in the 21st century with dozens of skyscrapers being built towards the north of the Corniche. The area's development is part of the economic boom the country has been experiencing and part of an effort promote tourism, which was facilitated by the 2006 Asian Games. Many of Doha's landmarks are found along the Corniche which begins near the Museum of Islamic Art, and ends at the Sheraton Park near the distinctive pyramid-shaped Sheraton Hotel. Al Rumaila Park is also nearby.

It's extremely popular for walkers, runners, skaters, joggers and people who enjoy an evening stroll.

Layan pemandangan sekitar Al Chronice Promenade dan Doha Bay ni.

Doha Bay... and Doha Skyline

Bot... yang di kenali sebagai Dhow.. boleh cruise sekitar Doha Bay ni kalau berminat.

Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel

The Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel is a five-star luxury hotel run by the Sheraton Hotels and Resorts overlooking the Persian Gulf in the West Bay area of Doha, Qatar. Located approximately 2 miles northwest of the port area, it reportedly covers an area of around 10,000 square metres. The hotel reportedly cost around $100 million to build, and although built by an American company, it was subsidized by the Qatari government.

Established in 1979, is noted for its distinct pyramid shape and is part of the conference facility for the Organization of Arab States. The Sheraton Doha has been described as having "a world of Arabian luxury and magical ambience". The hotel itself has a very important function as a conference centre in Doha and regularly hosts events including international scientific seminars and meetings. The First Conference for Expatriate Arab Scientists, QFIRST took place at the hotel in 2007 and it has hosted meetings of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The hotel reportedly has one auditorium which holds over 1000 people.

The hotel has 371 rooms and 26 conference rooms. The hotel has nine restaurants.

Doha Tower ( bujur telur) 


Salah satu iconic building di sini...

Doha Tower, also known as Burj Doha (Arabic: برج دوحة) and previously named as Burj Qatar and Doha High Rise Office Building, is an iconic high rise tower located in West Bay, Doha, Qatar. On October 18, 2012, the building received the CTBUH Skyscraper Award for the Best Tall Building Worldwide from the CTBUH.[5] The $125-million office building, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, has a height of 232 metres (761 ft), with 46 stories.

In 2004 the project was first named as High Rise Office Building and after completion of construction in 2012 was branded as Burj Doha by the owner, H. E. Sheikh Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani. The public has noted the buildings "phallic form", suggestive of what Nouvel calls a “fully assumed virility.”

Doha Tower comprises 46 floors above ground, 3 floors below ground and a total gross floor area of approximately 110,000 m². It has no central core, leaving more internal space available to its occupants. The design is unique, the first skyscraper with internal reinforced concrete dia-grid columns, which form a cross (X) shape that connects with the eye-catching cylindrical facade. The design expresses the local culture, connecting the very modern with ancient Islamic designs (Mashrabiya). Islamic screens were designed to shade the building from high temperatures as well as the unpleasant sand residue found on glass throughout the region. The building is designed to hold offices for businesses wishing to operate in the diverse business district of West Bay.

Doha Tower is owned by Sheikh Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani and managed by Hamad Bin Saoud Group.

Dia turunkan aku tepi jalan kat bus stop. Dan aku kena ikut haluan sendiri...

"Mujhko hai pyar zindagi pyar hai"

Kita terpaksa berpisah di sini Salmon Khan ! Semoga kau berjaya dalam apa jua industry yang kau ceburi.....
