Pearl of the Persian Gulf

13 Sep to 13 Sep
 
With a recent history full of touristic and technological developments, Qatar has become one of the most visited destinations in the Middle East. The modern and lush architecture balances with the traditional culture, making this a fascinating destination.


Doha, the capital, concentrates the major tourist attractions such as the Museum of Modern Art or the Museum of Islamic Art, a must see for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of local history. The Great Mosque is the largest symbol of the Qatari ostentation and the place of worship for the Qatari, with beautiful architecture and impressive gardens. At Katara Cultural Village, full of theatres, concert halls and galleries, you can experience several global cultures, and the Heritage Village presents the pre-oil history of the country. To relax, stroll along the Corniche promenade in Doha Bay, where the breeze from the sea and the sound of palm trees dancing in the wind create the perfect environment to recover energies.

Shopping enthusiasts have at their disposal a huge souk, the Souk Waqif, the municipal market where you can stock up on typical products and buy souvenirs for the whole family. Although a large part of the national territory consists of desert, Qatar also has beautiful beaches where you can cool off the immense heat that is felt, the best known being the beaches of Al Ghariya, Maroona, Khor Al Adaid, Ras Abrouq and Fuwairit, with its turquoise waters and white sand! Finish your itinerary with a visit to the city's most elegant neighbourhood, The Pearl-Qatar, where you will feel like a real oil magnate with the immense splendour that you'll find here.
