What to see in Qatar

Qatar Attractions


Visitors to Qatar will discover an Aladdin's cave of attractions and sightseeing treasures. Whether you're interested in shopping at the traditional souqs (markets), marvelling at the Museum of Islamic Art or the Moorish style buildings and forts, watching herds of graceful Oryx or the powerful beauty of Arabian horses and horsemanship, Qatar has something on offer for all visitors. Children will be delighted by the rides at Aladdin's Kingdom and enthralled by the animals at the Doha Zoo. A little further afield in the south-east of the country, Khor Al Adaid, is an inland sea, surrounded by seemingly endless sand dunes. Doha's Palm Tree Island is the perfect place to relax at the end of a holiday packed with adventure, beauty and excitement.
