Flights to Qatar
Qatar has changed tremendously in recent decades to transform it into a leading global city filled with world-class shopping malls, architecture, cultural events and culinary opportunities. Despite its rapid modernization, the country has gone to great lengths to preserve its fascinating cultural heritage which can be explored in many of its museums and heritage sites including The Museum of Islamic Art. Outside of the attractions in Doha, the capital of Qatar, a number of resort complexes along the coast offer an excellent place to enjoy the sunny weather.
What to do in Qatar
The city of Doha offers an eclectic range of opportunities to suit people of all tastes and ages. The many world-class shopping malls around the city not only offer designer shopping and fantastic restaurants but are also often architectural delights in themselves including Villagio Mall, modeled on Venetian architecture and featuring an indoor canal with gondolas. Cuisine in Qatar is very multinational, so travelers will be able to find food from all over the globe to enjoy.
Culture is very important in Qatar and can be explored at its many museums as well as the Katara cultural village which hosts many interesting events each year. Souq Waqif in central Doha, inspired by traditional Arabic marketplaces, is another must-visit and offers a wide selection of restaurants and shops. Outdoor activities are also very popular with locals and travelers and include watersports such as jet skiing and kite-surfing as well as exploring the sand dunes on a safari tour.
Flights to Qatar
The only international airport in Qatar is Hamad International Airport, replacing the previous Doha International Airport. The airport opened on April 2014 and handles over 32 million passengers each year. Many leading airlines provide cheap flights to Qatar from destinations as far as London and New York. The airport is the main hub of Qatar Airways, the national carrier of the country. Most visitors will require a visa in order to enter Qatar either upon arrival or before flying. Additionally, select nationals from countries including UAE and Bahrain do not require a visa to enter the country.
When to visit Qatar
Summer temperatures can reach scorching highs between May and September, so many choose to visit between October and March when the climate is a lot cooler. The hottest months are regarded as the off-season for visitors, while the Christmas and New Year period can become particularly busy.
