Pearls, Petroleum, and Desert Development

At the heart of the Persian Gulf in the Middle East, Qatar is a dynamic destination rich in both the literal sense and in terms of its cultural heritage. Fabulous souqs, museums, and cultural centers are a focus in the capital. Beautiful forts, beaches, and dunes dot the rest of the country. Visit timeworn pearling and fishing villages in the morning and then relax on a sunset dhow cruise in the evening. Or head out on an overnight desert safari, camping under the stars and enjoying a traditional Bedouin feast. MIR can help you explore it all.
