Qatar is a small peninsula in the Middle East; its capital city is Doha, which is quickly becoming a very popular tourist destination. The best time to travel Doha is in the autumn, winter and early spring months. The weather is lovely at these times because it's not too hot, I would personally advise you to avoid the summer months because the heat makes going outside unbearable.

Shaped like a pearl, the 988 acre island will be located on one of Doha's major Pearl Diving sites. The Pearl is the first global real estate venture and so far the largest real estate development project in Qatar. The island will feature Luxurious Villas, Apartments, Hotels, Shopping Malls, Entertainment and Private Islands, making it the first ever land that will be available for the freehold ownership of Foreign Nationals in Qatar. The Pearl consists of 7,600 residential units which will accommodate nearly 30,000 residents.

While in Doha, a visit to the souks is a must, and in particular Souk Wakif which has recently been refurbished to host the many shops selling materials, spices, honey, perfumes and Middle Eastern artifacts. The souk comes alive at night with the coffee shops and numerous restaurants offering cuisine from Arabia, Africa and Europe. Doha also has its fair share of shopping malls with plenty of well known designer shops; however most of them have a twist. For example, the City Centre Mall is home to Doha's Ice Rink, which is visible from all five floors of the shopping center. Then there's the Villagio shopping mall which has a canal running through it, where you can even have a ride on a gondola!

Qatar shoppers certainly have the money to spend - Qatar now has an average annual income of over $60,000 a year. That's substantially more than the average income of an American.

Doha is not the only city to offer amazing places to stay; Al Khor has a number of resorts in its region, including the world famous Al Sultan Beach Resort. It is less than a mile from any of the attractions of the city, and is little more than a half hour outside of the capital city. Providing a number of the aforementioned travel / tourism packages for people staying in the hotel, the Al Sultan Beach Resort also features the largest pool in all of Qatar, as well a style of Jacuzzi that is not seen anywhere else in Qatar, and is certainly worth the experience.

Log on to and you'll find everything that you need for cheap tickets to Doha.
