Qatar Holidays

One of the richest (and smallest) countries in the world, Qatar in the past may have been dwarfed by the glitz and glamour of its Middle Eastern neighbours like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but that is slowly changing. There are luxury hotels popping up left, right and centre, though particularly in the capital city of Doha where all the action is centred. Rising up from the sand between the dunes and the sea, Doha is a fast-growing city where contemporary buildings stand stand-by-side with ancient mosques and markets, making for a fascinating mix of tradition and modernity that begs to be explored further.


There are intriguing museums and art galleries, like the Museum of Islamic Arts found on the cusp of Doha’s Al-Corniche, or the Souq Waqif where you can glimpse everyday life taking place in this important marketplace. Other activities in Qatar include dune bashing in the desert, looking out for resident gazelles, oryxes and camels along the way, or taking a dhow ride over the bay, looking back over Doha’s impressive skyline. That said, a beach holiday in Qatar won’t disappoint either, with plenty of luxury hotels to choose from that flaunt their own private beaches, with shopping malls and restaurants to enjoy in between moments spent soaking up the sun in style.
