The welcoming country of Qatar can only be described as a true oasis of the Middle East. With a peninsular form just about the size of Massachusetts, Qatar juts nearly one hundred miles out into the sparkling blue waters of the Persian Gulf with miles upon miles of beautiful sand beaches.
Qatar itself has a unique Islamic, Bahraini, and British history, the influences of which can still be seen today. In fact, the city of Al Zubara is a site of archeological importance, as it is known for its famous fort, built in 1938, while the city of Al Khor is an impressive religious site, home to many of Qatar’s Islamic mosques.
The exciting capital city of Doha is situated halfway down the east coast of the peninsula. This modern economic center is an important cultural and commercial area and has excellent communications with the outside world through its modern seaport and airport. And as Doha is the largest city in Qatar, there is an infinite amount of things to do and see!
Sun-soaked desert escapades and shopping extravaganzas, natural attractions and water sports, state-of-the-art sporting facilities and historical museums, and fine dining and luxurious accommodations are just a few of the things you’ll find at on your exciting journey to Qatar!
