Living in Qatar
A unique blend of traditional and cosmopolitan, Qatar will quickly make visitors and residents fall in love with its rich experience. More open than some countries in region, and less frenzied than others, Qatar strikes a balance that eludes much of the Middle East.
People who love the outdoors will never run out of adventures like the flamingo-fringed Purple Island, the sparkling Inland Sea, horse-back riding hacks among eucalyptus trees or snorkelling in waters favoured by dolphins, dugongs and turtles. The dunes are a particular staple, and the creativity in how people use them for fun is limitless.
People who delight in cityscapes will enjoy the chic sidewalk cafés of “The Pearl”, with its colourful sights reminiscent of Italy and Spain, and discover endless cultural experiences in Katara, the Museum of Islamic Art, the National Qatar Library, the National Museum of Qatar, the traditional souqs, Sheikh Faisal’s Museum and many, many more.
International sporting and cultural events, held at the spectacular venues of Qatar National Convention Centre, Aspire Zone, Lusail International Circuit, Al Shaqab, the golf courses and exhibition centres add unmissable milestones throughout the calendar.
Qatar is equally appealing to single people and families, and the only thing better than visiting it is living in it. No taxes, travel opportunities, enriched family time and activities, cultural exposure, healthcare quality and affordability are second to none. Notwithstanding some complexities, which in the long term translate into transferable skills, living in Qatar will add a depth to your life’s journey that you might never have imagined.
