Qatar is a small country located in the Persian Gulf, right between Dubai and Saudi Arabia. It is literally the world's richest country because it sits on the largest natural gas reserve in the world. The capital and largest city of Qatar is Doha.
People used to complain that Qatar is boring. Now its become a nice place with plenty of things to do such as museums, shopping, restaurants, plays, concerts, beaches, safaris etc. Its no longer boring like it used to be, and more and more activities are opening up each month.
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.
What is the world's richest country? Its Qatar!
