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.

A great activity for tourists is simply to experience the nation’s tradition. The traditional Qatari way of life was simple: Bedouin nomads wandering the desert with their camels, and fisherman scouring the ocean floor for pearls to trade. While these two lifestyles are mostly extinct on the peninsula, the government has taken some measures to preserve their traditions for future generations to experience.

Most people visiting the country will enter via Hamad International Airport near Doha.
