Al Koot Fort

This former Ottoman fort can be seen on the edges of Souq Waqif.

Al Thakira

The mangroves swamps located at the mouth of this estuary make a welcome change of scenery from the desert, as well as being the home to a range of wildlife.

Al Zubarah Fort

This superb – if not very old fort – was in active use until a few short years ago.

Barzan Towers

Read about and see pictures of the watch towers built by the founder of the Qatar Nation.


Sail across the desert to the Inland Sea with this exciting new sport that is hitting the Qatar beaches.

Camel Racing

Until recently, unscrupulous owners used child jockeys bought from traffickers to race their camels. Now, though, you can see the camels raced by their replacements - robots.

Desert Trip

Read about this trip through Qatar's towering sand dunes to Qatar's most impressive natural asset - Qatar's Inland Sea.

Located in Al Rayyan, this zoo has both animals from the Gulf and more from more far flung countries – although they have avoided penguins and polar bears for obvious reasons.
