Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world and we all know that. But did you know that there are many more amazing facts about this country that we barely know about? Here are just some of them.
There is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
In 2007 UNESCO recognized Al Reem Biosphere Reserve as one World Heritage Site. This is an inhabited area which accounts for 10% of Qatar’s land area.
There is a separate village reserved for culture and arts
In Doha, you find the Katara village which is simply reserved for culture. In this village, you find a lot of art exhibitions, indy films, operas and many other festivals of different sorts.
Over 50% of the nation’s population is in Doha
The fastest-growing city in Qatar is Doha and it has over 50% of the nation’s population in it, which is quite amazing. Qatar has some of its best hotels in Doha, one of them being the Al Najada Doha Hotel by Tivoli that is worth making note of when considering accommodation here.
Qatari cuisine is also interesting
Qatari cuisine is interesting because there are major influences from Iranian and Indian cuisines if you are observant of it. Machbus and Karak tea are just some good ones, which are quite popular among the locals.
