Blend of Old and New

The stunning urban landscape of Doha can make one forget that the beginnings of Qatar date back 6,000 years. Qatar always fascinates with its contrasting, open, 21st century society that is rooted in culture and history. It has soaring skyscrapers and beautiful mosques, local souqs and upscale malls, falcons homing back to their masters, jets that cut through the sky, historic forts and futuristic hotels, camel races and international sporting events.
