Dhow Cruise in the Bay at Night

Went on a cruise on a dhow in the bay of Doha.  West Bay was so beautiful lit up and saw some really nice views of the skyscrapers and Palm Tree Island.

A dhow (داو) is a traditional Arab sailing vessel with one or more lateen sails. It is primarily used to carry heavy items, like fruit, along the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula, Pakistan, India and East Africa. Larger dhows have crews of approximately thirty people, while smaller dhows typically have crews of around twelve.
