Views to Saudi Arabia from the desert of Qatar
Doha is usually a stopover destination where people take the opportunity to visit the modern capital of Qatar before moving to their final destination. In fact, if you do it with Qatar Airways they will offer you a free tour of about three hours. If you want more information you will find it in our previous article dedicated to essential visits in Doha.
However, Qatar well deserves to spend some night. Not only to know its spectacular hotels inside and contemplate its skyscrapers illuminated at night but also to enjoy its beaches just stepped on by tourists or take a real adrenaline festival riding in 4 × 4 over the dunes of its vast desert.
In fact, Qatar and the Arabian peninsula by extension, is a huge desert where people live in big cities and the interior has been practically at the mercy of nature. In this dry ecosystem and extreme temperatures, the dunes are the real protagonists and there are several tours that will take you to contemplate beautiful pictures of a desert without visual pollution.
We got on with the Gulf Adventures agency, with a guide in Spanish, which led us to travel a good part of the desert in 4 × 4, hit a good bath in the crystalline waters of the Persian Gulf and recover forces based on a good feast of products of the region in a properly conditioned haima.
