Viewed from the air, the city of Doha, Qatar, has a magical, surreal look, and once you've landed you'll be longing to explore this bustling metropolis in the center of the desert. Luxury may be common in this part of the world, but through Travelocity it's simple to find cheap accommodations and a rental car in Doha.
Your flight to Doha lands at Hamad International Airport, about nine miles (less than 20 minutes) from downtown Doha.

Preliminaries over? Hit the streets and explore this amazing part of the world. Drive northeast to Al Jassasiya to see nearly 1,000 petroglyphs carved into the limestone rocks. Dhows, fish, and animals are all represented, as well as daisy-like circles which are thought to be part of an ancient game. Learn about the architectural heritage of Qatar at Al Wakra Museum, situated in one of the old forts of this former fishing village. Journey in your Doha car rental to Al Zubarah to view this fascinating, well-preserved former trading and pearl diving center; the fort and town have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Although located in the desert, Doha is also a sea-front city, so take a romantic dhow cruise on the blue waters of Doha Bay; many tour operators offer cruises, ranging from all day to a couple of hours in the evening, and some include a meal.
