DOHA

I had never considered traveling to Qatar. However, a few years ago, one my way to Spain from Southeast Asia, I realized that the airline offered a stopover in Doha for several days. We did not want to miss out on the opportunity to visit a new place; therefore, we decided to stay a total of four nights in Doha.

I did not expect much before visiting Doha; however, it did manage to surprise me quite a bit. A multi-day tour of the city will take you back to its interesting past, when Qatar was simply a small fishing and trading hub. Thanks to the discovery of oil in 1940, Doha has now become one of the richest countries in the world today.
