Qatar is an independent emirate on the west coast of the Persian Gulf. it occupies a small desert peninsula that extends northward from the larger Arabian Peninsula. It shares a land border to its south with Saudi Arabia. It is to the east of the island country of Bahrain and west of the United Arab Emirates.

Most of the country is flat, low-lying desert, which rises from the east to a central limestone plateau.

The country’s capital Doha is a great starting point for an adventure in Qatar. A vibrant city in the heart of the desert, where traditional Souks are next to modern shopping malls, mouth-watering local and international cuisine, entertainment and mind-blowing architecture. You can learning about the centuries-old art of falconry or ride off into the sunset on the back of a camel. If that is not enough then you could just sit back and enjoy the winter sun and have a lazy beach day.
