Qatar overview

Qatar Travel Guide
Qatar, which is part of the Arab Emirates, is a part of the tourist boom that is happening in the Middle East. Qatar, like many countries in the region, has been both helped and doomed by the fact that it is sitting on a whole lot of oil. This massive stockpile of oil money has made Qatar one of the richest countries in the world and the modern architectural marvels that dapple the city stand as testament to Qatar's plethora of black gold. Qatar acts as a middle ground when it comes to Islamic law, so it is not as strict as Saudi Arabia, but this definitely isn't the UAE or Bahrain. You can find booze and bars are starting to pop up, but donít expect a whole lot of clubbing and nightlife on your visit to Qatar. In many ways Qatar is a country between ancient and modern worlds.
