From pristine beaches and graceful sand dunes, to colourful souks, forts and museums, Qatar offers you an endless variety of things to do. Depending on how long you plan to stay – from a day to a month – there’s an exciting world of culture, shopping and entertainment to explore.
Qatar enjoys year round sunshine with a subtropical desert climate. Annual rainfall is low and the summers are hot and humid. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit, offering pleasant daytime temperatures and cool, refreshing evenings.
Qatar is an Islamic state and being respectful to its culture will help you enjoy your stay.

Qatar Airways has grown to more than 140 destinations worldwide, offering unmatched levels of service excellence that have helped excel the award-winning carrier to become best in the world. Voted Airline of the Year 2011 and in 2012 in the prestigious Skytrax industry audit, Qatar Airways has won the confidence of the travelling public.
Travel by air has reached the point where it is now taken for granted in all corners of the globe. With a larger number of passengers and more choice available in the skies today, airlines looking to maintain or grow their position in the marketplace must provide high-quality service with ever-increasing efficiency. In this highly competitive environment, Qatar Airways has achieved much with our phenomenal route expansion averaging 30% growth year to year and flying one of the most modern fleet of 134 aircraft in the skies today. Our global network currently spans key business and leisure destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America, with scheduled flights operating to and from our hub in Doha, capital of the State of Qatar.
Since the airline’s relaunch in 1997, Qatar Airways has earned many awards and accolades, becoming one of an elite group of airlines worldwide to have been awarded a 5-Star rating by Skytrax. I am delighted to say that Qatar Airways has achieved our main goal to be the best in the world and reach the pinnacle of the airline industry for outstanding in-flight service, superior onboard products, and operational excellence – a proud honour for me as Group Chief Executive, for my workforce, and for my country.
Part of this excellence is offering you a 5-Star travel experience online at the newly-relaunched qatarairways.com where you can book flights and search for information on the airline.
Qatar Airways takes corporate social responsibility very seriously. We are leading new-generation fuel research and giving back to the communities that we serve.
