Best things to do in Qatar - Enjoy a quality vacation in Qatar

When it comes to vacationing in Qatar it is quite easy to feel spoilt for choice. Do you simply explore the spectrum of restaurants or maybe you head out to slide down some dunes? Either way, with so many options, one thing is for certain, you will never be bored in Qatar.


Explore the Souq Waqif

During your visit to Qatar, there are some aspects of the capital city that you must simply not miss out on. One of the best examples of this is how the Souq Waqif has managed to hold onto a bygone era, in the heart of modernity. The bazaar's name translates roughly to the Standing market and is an ideal location for you to explore the plethora of tastes, smell and sights that have withstood the test of time.
Surrounded by a stunning array of spices and handicrafts you will sink into an experience that will hold you firmly in its grasp. As the ambience of the Souq is both modern and extremely traditional, it is the ideal starting point for travellers.
Being able to enjoy one of the spa hotels in Doha such as the Al Najada Doha Hotel by Tivoli and then immediately shift oneself into the epitome of an Arabic bazaar is a luxury only afforded to those in Qatar.


The Pearl Qatar

This stunning mad made island found north of the West Bay is what many would consider the lap of luxury. Filled to the brim with yachts, massive stores, villas and other trinkets of the super-wealthy this is the place to be for those who want a glimpse of how the mega-rich live their lives.
Despite the high income per square foot, this part of Qatar is still a popular dining spot for many people who are in the area and looking for a good meal.


Dive among the sand dunes

For those among you who simply crave a little bit of action and adventure, then there is no better place to head to than the deserts of Qatar. While some may opt to ride camels and enjoy a desert safari, others will likely opt to simply experience the thrill of dashing across the vast desert.
As your dune bash, feel free to head towards the sandy beaches of Qatar as well for a quick dip to refresh.


Walkthrough the Al Zubarah Fort

Another great place to visit during your time in Qatar is the Al Zubarah Fort found near the town of Al Ruwais. This iconic desert fort is considered the archaeological site of Al Zubarah town and is also deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Given that it is perfectly preserved, the site is a great example of 18th-19th century settlements from this part of the world.


Witness the grandeur of vintage cars

If you are looking for an experience that takes you through the ingenious engineering advancements in motor vehicles in the recent past, then The Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum is the place to be!
