Why this mysterious country should be trending for 2018 travel

Take your quest for knowledge and cultural experiences to this paradise. Ten years ago, Qatar wasn’t on anyone’s radar. Many people, in fact, would be hard pressed to know where it was or really anything about it. Today, it is growing quicker and faster than anyone could have expected. Boasting an airline that continuously ranks #1 in luxury service, Qatar serves as a hub for travelers seeking a cultural thrill before continuing their trip to Asia.

Doha, the capital, has become a world-class city with many places of interest that appeal to a diverse number of travelers. The stupendous Museum of Islamic Art is perhaps the finest in the Gulf Region. And, the arts and culinary scenes are growing, adding to the city’s appeal.

For something completely different, Qatar offers the opportunity to watch camels ridden by remote-controlled robot jockeys as they race across the desert. Why not wager on the daily double? To wind down, experience one of Doha’s many sophisticated restaurants and watch the sun set over sand dunes.

As a leading FIT provider of hotels and services, TravelBound offers a variety of hotels for the discerning luxury traveler looking to visit Qatar. In Doha, in particular, one is never further away from all the major sights than two hours of traveling time. TravelBound’s selection of properties is second to none, most in the four- and five-star category.

To complement the exquisite accommodation choices, there is a multitude of activities provided by TravelBound, whether that is a private or small group-led tour.

Imagine a desert safari traversing over sand dunes, followed by a BBQ dinner at an actual Bedouin camp. Or if browsing stores and markets is in your client’s interest, the Doha Shopping Tour is a must try. It includes stops at a traditional market for trinkets and souvenirs, and then on to the Gold Souq where everything glitters.

For those with a desire for experiencing the culture of the destination they are in, a visit to the Katara Cultural Village is a must. Here is the largest and most multidimensional cultural project of Qatar. It is a place where people come together to experience cultures from throughout the world with an emphasis on the diversity in human development. Theaters, concert halls and galleries are spread throughout this complex. Without a doubt, it can be a day for learning in a unique setting.

Without question, Qatar like entering an Arabian fairy tale. A country going quickly into the future, but has retained the essence of its past. With TravelBound, all this is at your fingertips.
