There are alleys to explore, coffeehouses to sit and watch the world go by, magnificent desert landscapes, basket weaving and every kind of souk your shopping heart could wish for.

Qatar is a small thumb-shaped country in the Persian Gulf where you will find ritzy hotels, ancient rock carvings, enormous sand dunes and distinctive architecture. You can see groups of traditional dance performers wearing costumes resplendent with jewellery. Visitors can take an amazing desert excursion or if you are looking for greenery and shade, take a stroll along the beautiful 7km coastal corniche in Doha.
