Qatar is really hot, and in the summer it easily reaches 50C and unbelievable humidity. In the winter the weather is amazing though, with temperatures around 23C and mostly sunny.
Qatar has a clear vision of the country it wants to become, as it is still in the development process (as are most countries in the region). New projects such as the metro and Lusail will help it achieve that.
Qatar is relatively liberal. Women are not required to cover in any special way, and can drive, hold political office, and go to university. Alcohol and pork are permitted.
