ABOUT QATAR

You will discover a land of contrasts, dynamic and exciting, yet with a sense of timeless serenity and tradition. Qatar brings together old world hospitality with cosmopolitan sophistication, the chance to enjoy a rich cultural tapestry, new experiences and adventures. The whole country, with its heritage souqs, world-class Museum of Islamic Art, and lyrical sand dunes, provides travellers the perfect first step into the Middle East but without the tensions often associated with the region.

It could be a best experience to see young Qataris buying their first falcon under the eyes of an uncle or grandfather, keen to hand down the family heritage of bird-handling skills. (Falcons are some of the fastest birds in the world; the Peregrine Falcon is believed to be the fastest animal on earth, reaching speeds of up to 380km/h during a dive). Today, Qataris continue falconry in an effort to preserve their culture. UNESCO even added falconry to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity List for Middle Eastern culture.
