State of Qatar is a country located in Western Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. Most of the country consists of a low, barren plain, covered with sand. Qatar is classified by the UN as a country of very high human development. Qatar is a significant contrast from the surrounding region, with no war, no conflict and minimal crime.
Many come to the Middle East seeking the mystic, traditional life of the Bedouins, wandering the desert with their life’s belongings on a camel’s back. Although tradition is still an important part of the Qatari ethos, the country has well and truly moved into the twenty-first century with the piercing glass skyscrapers of *Doha.
