In just forty years, this Gulf state has grown from one of the poorest countries in the Gulf to the richest in the world. Mainly functioning on oil and natural gas revenue, Qatar is developing at breakneck speed, and everything from universities to shopping malls, 5-star hotels to football stadiums (in preparation for the 2022 World Cup) are springing up along the desert floor.
Qatar is like a low-lying peninsula. Smooth plains characterise the Eastern regions of the country, while the South and South-West consist of sand dunes and salt flats. Many flat islands are located along the coast and are accompanied by coral reefs and salt pans.
Winter is the best time to visit Qatar
Winter is the best season to visit this Gulf country, as it is then that the temperature is pleasant for sightseeing. Sandstorms prevail throughout the year and their frequency is highest during spring.
Amazing skyscrapers. Great beaches. Rich traditional values.
Very strict rules for women.
Architecture enthusiasts. Those who wish to experience royalty first-hand.
In the capital city of Doha, 5-star hotels, private beach resorts and glitzy accommodations are available. Luxury stay options are available readily and are a highly recommended experience. Beyond the city, since most of the regions are major oil mines and refineries used for commercial purposes, small cottages and bungalows are available for stay.
