About Qatar

The State of Qatar is one of the most exciting countries in the MENA region, with a young population, incredible sporting infrastructure, and world-class sporting plans for the future.

Historically a strategic trading port, Qatar is now home to more than two million people and is a major economic hub.

Doha is the capital city and the economic centre of the State of Qatar. There’s always something to do in Doha, with a host of attractions including museums, art galleries and a wide range of entertainment options.

The coolest months of the year, weather wise, are between December to February and this is the ideal time to explore some of the beautiful beaches, sand dunes and parks Qatar has to offer – or to run the Ooredoo Marathon!
