Old forts, traditional markets and ancient carvings provide a window to the past, while the striking metropolis of Doha, with its glittering skyscrapers and manmade islands are a captivating glimpse into the present, and promising future.

The Middle Eastern country also has an impressive array of natural attractions. There’s the open desert, which is fun to blast around in a 4x4, as well as mangrove forests and lakes with a rich array of plants and animals. And that’s just on land – there are also some spectacular coastlines and excellent places to snorkel and dive.
