Qatar. This peninsular Arab country, best known for its futuristic skyscrapers as well as for a shoreline of beaches and dunes is a country in Western Asia that has garnered worldwide attention as a tourist destination that provides a sophisticated holiday experience for travellers.
A Walk in the Souq Waqif
The ‘standing market’ of Qatar, the Souq Waqif has been rebuilt to relive and experience the olden ways of bargaining. While Doha accommodation options are many, if Souq Waqif is on top of your checklist, Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels By Tivoli will be the ideal lodging for your vacation as it takes only a minute walk to reach this maze of endless clothing, fabric, sweets, spices etc. You name it, they’ve got it.
Enthralling Desert Safaris
Set off on a dune bashing extravaganza in the desert. A trip to Qatar is never complete without riding along the high and steep sand dunes of the desert, be it during the daytime or night-time. You can also camp under the starlight as you slip off to a peaceful night’s slumber in a luxury Arabian tent or a tent set up by yourself.
The Museum of Islamic Art
The architectural expertise of the Museum of Islamic art was the brainchild of architect I. M. Pei, who believed that it should stand alone on an island of its own so that no other buildings would obstruct it. As a result, the museum which houses jewellery, textiles, Islamic patterns and calligraphy gives the impression of a floating museum due to its positioning just off the Corniche.
Explore the Al Thakira Mangroves
Confined in a massive area of greenery, the Al Thakira Mangroves is a paradise of its own, surrounded by water and an ecosystem, contrary to the dry and sandy desert lands. The best way to explore the waters of the mangroves is in a kayak, as you witness the chirping of many migratory birds like flamingos and herons, taking flight in glee to lands unknown.
