Qatar is a relatively new tourist spot, but travellers boarding flights to Qatar arrive in a country full of lavish new hotels, ancient architecture and some of the best scenery in the region. Historically a country that kept to itself, Qatar witnessed the money that tourism brought its neighbours and decided to open its doors to travellers.
Qatar’s capital city Doha is less travelled and remains a quiet location in the area. Travellers heading to Doha should visit the National Museum before heading back to their resort towns. The museum is located inside the palace of former ruler Sheikh Abdulla Bin Mohammed and boasts a large aquarium and Qatar artefacts that tell the story of this quiet country.
Today, Qatar has become a popular tourist destination thanks to the opulent five-star hotels and tax-free shopping available to travellers. As the country boasts its tourism industry, new hotels and attractions are constantly being built and cheap flights to Qatar are always easy to come by.
Qatar is very sunny and sees very little rain, averaging only 7.6cm each year. Summer temperatures can reach 40 C and it doesn’t get much cooler in the winter. You’ll notice the days become a bit cooler and the nights cool to a slight chill, but that’s the only difference.
The best time to book a flight to Qatar is between October and April. Winter-sun lovers and divers should note that the sea is coolest in December and January.
The Eid al Adha, or the feast of sacrifice, Ramadan and Eid Al Fitri are all important religious events in Qatar.
July and August are low season times in Qatar when it is simply too hot for most Western visitors. However, if you’re a keen diver it’s a great time to go.
