Surrounded by the Persian Gulf on three sides, Qatar offers its visitors a taste of Arabian food, architecture and culture, as well as beautiful beaches and unbeatable shopping districts. Fast becoming a travel destination to rival the likes of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Combining history and tradition with modern architecture, Qatar is becoming a country where modern shopping malls rub shoulders with traditional souks, and fine dining sits along the same streets as traditional Arabian street food. A travel destination where you can have the best of both worlds – modern convenience and exotic Arabian culture.
When is the best time of the year to visit Qatar?
Part of the Arabian Peninsula, Qatar is a country of hot weather all year round, with virtually no rainfall and only two seasons – hot and cooler months.
The best time to visit is during the cooler season, from November to April, when temperatures are height but pleasant. The Qatari summer is best avoided if you are not used to the heat, as temperatures escalate to above 40°C (104F) and can make it very uncomfortable to sightsee or visit the beach.
