Tourist Attractions

In steeped-in-tradition Qatar, you can learn about the ancient pursuit of falconry, watch camels race across the desert and admire traditional dhows (wooden boats) bobbing on the water. But the country is developing rapidly, with the capital Doha a world-class city in the making, thanks to its spectacular modern skyline, peerless Museum of Islamic Art, fine and expansive traditional souq, and burgeoning arts and culinary scenes. In any given day you could sample a portfolio of sophisticated restaurants, then watch the sun set over sand dunes that seem to spring from a fairy tale.
