A country in Western Asia, Qatar mostly consists of sand dunes. The country protrudes many miles into the Persian Gulf, and the natives are quite fond of the native Arabian Oryx, which is also the national animal of Qatar. Here are some things you can do in Qatar while staying at one of the best hotels in Doha.
Qatar is famously known for its sparkling golden deserts. They attract millions of tourists each year – particularly the keen astrophotographers across the globe. The exquisite blend of water and desert will take you to a place that emanates an ethereal quality. At the Qatari desert, one can expect to indulge in thrilling sports such as sandboarding, and dune bashing.
Qatar is blessed with a majestic structure. Although the towering skyscrapers and the astounding buildings give the cityscape a modern appearance, away from that, traces of the country’s ancient architecture can be admired.
Galleries and Museums
Art lovers would love a tour through the magnificent galleries and museums in Qatar. Built on its own island is the Museum of Islamic Art. Its iconic arches offer pleasing vistas of the surrounding waters. Katara Cultural Village showcases the best of contemporary local art and culture.
The Qatari market places or the “Souqs” shouldn’t be missed on one’s visit to Qatar. Located close to properties such as Al Najada Doha Hotel by Tivoli, the Souq Waqif is one of the major traditional markets in the country, which was a trading place for ancient Bedouin.
