If you’re craaaaving sun like a vampire craaaves blood, especially over the chilly winter period, it’s time to ditch the day job for a week or two in favour of the sparklingly sunny country of Qatar. Temps are nice and mild in Qatar between December and February and the skies are almost always sunny and blue. Think spring in the UK, with about 224 hours of fun in the sun available across the month of Feb.
Holidays to Qatar
With high-end hotels welcoming luxury travellers and desert safaris quenching the adventurers’ thirst, Qatar holidays are a match for any sunny destination in the world. Follow in the footsteps of the Bedouin as you explore Qatar’s huge expanse of sandy landscapes, and make the desert your playground as you hop on a board and surf the dunes. After a hard day’s fun, nestle down in your sweet, air-conned pad.
Boasting a huge coastline along the Persian Gulf, there’s always plenty of room for a bask-heavy beach day spent sun-soaking, not forgetting the occasional dip into the irresistibly clear blue-green waters for a bath-temp swim. If you’re feeling restless, take a scuba dive beneath the waters and meet the kaleidoscope of sea life living on Qatar’s shores, or push the boat out and get the heart racing on some jet skis.
You can start your perfect Qatar day shopping and fully immersing yourself in the rich culture at Souq Waqif, a traditional market in Doha where you’ll be able to pick up some gorgeous garms and sensational spices, assuming you’ve got the room in your suitcase. At lunchtime, dig into a hearty serving of machboos, the country’s national dish.
Then, head for a relaxing afternoon sleeping off your dins by the pool or on the soft, pale sands, before perking up again and heading out for some evening entertainment. You just can’t beat the Middle East – especially Insta-perfect, forever memorable holidays in Qatar.
