Destination Management Company (DMC) Qatar
Incoming agency Arabian Link Travel
Did you know that the people of Qatar love camel races more than anything?
Odd: Today, robot jockeys with remote-controlled whips are used because robots are lighter than real jockeys. The Qatari love their camels and pamper as well as decorate them with beautiful adornments, handmade and very colourful. Most travelers arrive here with little to no knowledge of what expects them. Qatar is a great unknown. The Football World Cup 2022 however brought a lot of attention to this rich country in the Middle East. "Expect Amazing" is the slogan for the football world cup, and one thing is certain: Qatar is not going to disappoint. The emirate on the Persian gulf has come a long way from being a country of pearl fishers to becoming an impressive and ambitious business metropolis.

The weather in Doha
No matter where you choose to go in Qatar, the impression is "bigger, better, newer". Qatar is busy reinventing itself. It is one of the richest countries in the world. Most travellers book Qatar as a stopover destination on the way to Asia or Australia. But trust ALT when they recommend it as a fascinating destination in its own right. Its history goes back to neolithic times. Over 870 mysterious petroglyphs (images on rocks) were found by archaeologists on the northern coast of Qatar, some of which still have not been deciphered.
Qatar's cuisine combines the best of the Arab world with influences from India and Iran. Make sure your clients taste Umm Ali! The Qatar International Food Festival takes place every summer and is an absolute must-visit for clients that are in the capital Doha at that time. Apart from exquisite dishes from Qatar and all over the world, visitors also try their hand at cooking. Supervised by famous cooks, visitors can participate in cooking classes.
The Museum of Islamic Art in the centre of Doha and the Katara Cultural Village - built with the idea of cultural exchange and the preservation of Qatari traditions - are also definitely worth a visit.You will find galleries as well as great locations for events and restaurants here. The amphitheatre, an opera and a theatre offer best entertainment. Of course, a trip to Qatar would not be complete without getting lost in the many wonders of the Souq Waqif, the embodiment of Arabic bazar culture: Haggle and see which bargains you can take home! In the midst of this labyrinth of people, colourful stalls and the most lovely scents, it is easy to lose track of time...There are also modern shopping malls that will surely fulfill all your guests' wishes.
Qatar's beach invites you to stroll along the promenade of Doha, when a slight breeze brushes the palm trees and the sun on the horizon makes the sea glisten... Qatar even has its own inland sea which has also been recognized by the UNESCO as a nature reserve. Make sure to include this in your holiday itinerary! The desert is perfect for organising all kinds of adventures such as desert safaris. Include the famous camel races of Doha in your programmes, which can be visited from October to May.
