Qatar is fast developing as a major Mid-east destination, after opening its doors to tourism since 1989.
A visitor who descends into Qatar, will be welcomed by the eye-catching view of the capital city, Doha. The landscaped, crescent-shaped corniche, the sandy desert backdrop and the sparkling blue waters of the Gulf, are the first glimpse of what awaits a tourist, who arrives for a vacation in the sun-kissed country. Doha is a place filled with desert escapades, water sports, shopping indulgence, modern sporting equipments, historical museums, fine-dining, luxurious attractions and other natural attractions.
Situated on the bank of the Arabian Gulf, Doha, the Capital city of Qatar is one of the most chosen destinations to visit and live. Teeming with activity, Doha for long has been known as one of the most 'eventful' pearl fishing villages in the South East Arabia of the Persian Gulf.
Qatar houses major historic forts, modern luxury hotels, impressive seascapes and sandunes and is home to the Al Jazeera headquarters, the Arab world’s answer to CNN.
Tourists can explore the natural environment of Qatar by taking an exciting desert safari, relaxing at the many beaches and pools or just enjoying their favourite sport, be it bowling alleys, tennis, snookers, billiards, golf courses, or ice skating rinks. There is something for everyone in this wonderful place.
There are several lodging options available in Doha and in addition to the few luxury hotels one can also choose from several other options available. Recent construction ensures that Qatar is well served by first-class hotels. Several 3 star & 4 star hotels are also available which offer reasonable accommodation.
