Vacations and Sightseeing

Recently, Qatar is also trying to promote tourism to the country. To this end, major sporting events (tennis, motorcycle races, golf) were organised.

Large conferences and meetings are also regularly organized for the international business world. Only since 1989 visas have been issued to tourists.

The main attractions in Qatar are the coastline with beautiful beaches, the soukhs where you can buy everything and the Al Koot fort with the museum of ethnology.

Furthermore, tourists like to visit the breeding farms with Arabian thoroughbred horses or to watch the camel races that are held regularly.
