Most beautiful place's in Qatar – Unearthing the Wonders of Qatar

Developing in a big way, Qatar of late has caught tourism by storm. Flaunting a collection of attractive buildings and places there is plenty to experience in this city.


Katara Mosque

Spirituality is a major part of the Qatari culture and the many mosques found here is proof of this fact. The Katara mosque is particularly attractive for it adds a touch of history to this spiritual attraction. Located in the heart of the Katara Cultural Village, the mosque is one place well traversed by the tourist. In fact there is plenty to absorb in a beautiful building like the Katara. For one the architecture has no parallels making it one of the most unique buildings in the country. The interior adds to this effect giving this structure a magical feel both in and out. If you are keen on exploring this entire region altogether stay at one of the Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels.


State Grand Mosque

When it comes to exploring the mosques in Qatar there are so many places that are noteworthy. One such mosque that deserves admiration is the state Grand mosque. As the name has it, this mosque is the meaning of 'Grand' and has a rather intimidating exterior and a certainly alluring interior. It feels like a fortress this place of worship and from the moment you step inside it takes you to another universe altogether. The extraordinary architecture combined with the large space will leave you speechless altogether. If you visit the mosque at night prepare to fall in love with its unique purple glow.


The Doha Dessert

Endless expanses of golden velvet; that is what Doha's desert is all about. When holidaying in Qatar it is important to experience this entirely different version of the glamorous cityscape that Qatar is more commonly known for. In fact the further you go from the city the more you are surrounded by miles and miles of smooth, soft sands. Doha's desert is very inviting. From the moment one lays eyes on this vast and almost unfamiliar landscape, it calls you and the temptation to run your fingers through the tiny grains of sand is overwhelming. The best part is in Qatar there are so many ways you can enjoy this flawless desert. You could take part in a desert safari for instance and enjoy a glimpse of authentic Arabian lifestyle. While you are at it relish in traditional food and indulge in some wild and rugged desert sports.


Al Zubarah Fortress

The Al Zubarah Fortress showcases the historic side of Qatar. In fact its location itself offers the backdrop to everything else that this building has in store. It is literally in the middle of nowhere this fortress, but perhaps this fact by itself adds even more to its appeal. You have options to visit the Zubarah Fort on the back of a camel and while you are here, be prepared to enjoy an authentic dose of Qatari history. Al Zubarah Fortress usually makes its way into any Doha sightseeing agenda.


Al Wakra Museum

For those tempted to delve deeper into the historic side of the city, the Al Wakra Museum offers plenty to witness. From ancient artefacts to a journey through the making of Qatar, you get it all in the Al Wakra Museum.
