Cornucopia’s travel guide

Middle East

Amazing collections in amazing museums, from Doha to Abu Dhabi.

1 Doha – Qatar

The small, instantly accessible city has the most eye-catching Islamic art museum, designed by Louvre-renovator I.M. Pei and sitting square on its own island at the south end of Doha Bay. It has a large and wide-ranging collection.

2 Egypt

The Egyptians were the great traders of the eastern Mediterranean, and there is still a heady cosmopolitan atmosphere in the country, from its coast, where Ottoman mansions remain, to the Cairo bazaar, which rivals Istanbul’s.
