Already well-known as a business travel destination, Doha - capital of the State of Qatar - has emerged in recent years as a rapidly developing leisure tourism destination as well.
A dynamic modern country built on the deep cultural roots of its Bedouin heritage, Qatar presents visitors with a kaleidoscope of fascinating contrasts and experiences, from tranquility of desert to lively alleys of souq, the impressive coastal fortresses to dramatic high-rise towers, deserted sandy beaches and mangrove lagoons to elegant residential districts, green parks and luxury hotels.
