The true story of Doha We can say that it started after the discovery of oil and the independence of Qatar in the 20th century. Oil has given the city (home to more than 80% of the emirate's population) and Qatar, great wealth. It is considered the richest Arab country, with a per capita income of more than US $ 40,000. by year. During the last decades, this "visualization" of wealth has been concretized with the construction of glittering skyscraper and huge office buildings.
The problem it is that now the government is beginning to look at the long-term oil reserves they have left, in order to be able to keep “growing” such a wonderful place. In summary, although the city's tourist authorities deny it, Doha is trying to "become a Dubai". I know reinvent every day with the opening of great hotels, restaurants and sites specifically designed for tourism.
Billions of dollars are being invested in a new airport. The rapid expansion of the state airline Qatar Airways, is causing many tourists to discover a place as wonderful as it is unknown as Doha. You should not miss a visit to The Pearl, a kind of urbanization distributed in artificial islets.
You will also find beautiful places of interest tourist to visit, not just skyscrapers. You cannot leave without taking a tour of the dunes. It may not yet measure up to Dubai or Qatar, but Doha is certainly "big" too.
