Out of season
We’re sorry! The holiday you’re looking for is not in season. Luckily, we have loads of other exciting options. Take a look!
Once a poor nation, Qatar has evolved to become one of the wealthiest countries in the world, thanks to an abundance of oil and natural gas. Its rags-to-riches story continues as Qatar becomes an increasingly attractive travel destination. Qatar’s capital, Doha, home to more than 50% of the population, is a hive of activity, with modern skyscrapers, a wealth of entertainment and hotels, plus many big businesses. Like Dubai, Doha has man-made beaches and plenty of exciting shopping malls. However, Qataris are very traditional, and old pastimes like falconry and camel racing still reign supreme.
But Qatar is not just about big city living. Its west coast beaches are renowned, and the desert, with its towering dunes, is a paradise for those who enjoy an adventure. Go dune bashing in four by four vehicles, enjoy leisurely camel rides and tuck into traditional dinners with dancing under the stars.
