Qatar’s capital city is a thought-provoking combination of desert and futuristic skyline. It’s a place where you can see development happen as you blink, transforming the city inch by inch every single day.
A Quick About
The city has been on an upward spike of growth for quite some time now, evolving into a tourist hub that is well on its way to overtake its rivals in the Emirates; home to a slew of 5-star hotels in Doha as well as classy restaurants, huge supermalls and towering skyscrapers.
Doha doesn’t contain a lot of historic relics even though it is rich in heritage under the Ottoman rule in the 1800s and then being governed by the British for the next 75 years. It was in 1949 that Qatar began to dip its toes into the oil and gas industry and by the 1960s Doha had become the wealthiest city in the region. It is evident in its luxury hotels like Souq Al Wakra Hotel Qatar by Tivoli.
Thanks to the arid desert climate the weather in Qatar is sunny all year. If you’d like to escape the intense heat you will need to plan your trip carefully.
Best Time to Go
The best time to visit is during the months of November to March which is considered the cool season.
