Qatar, an Arab Emirate, Middle East, oil and gas rich nation has the highest GDP per capita in the world. Hard to think about it when in ancient times this country was a trading port and town! Most of the country consists of a desert landscape with mild winters and very hot summers. Most of Qataris are Muslims.
Doha is the Capital city and has a lot to offer. From its beautiful Corniche and modern shops and buildings to the adventurous 4×4 Jeep safaris or quad bikes in the desert, it truly is an amazing city. One can also hire camels to go for a ride that takes you back in time. Another interesting activity is sand dune surfing, which most of the young people love to practice. Doha is surrounded by beautiful beaches, offering relief from the hot dessert sun. Visit the oryx farm and Doha Zoo to get to know Qatar’s wildlife.
