Sitting on a peninsula that juts out into the Persian Gulf, little Qatar covers a small amount of territory but contains big reserves of natural gas and oil, boosting the per capita income to levels greater than in many highly industrialized Western countries. Ideal for travelers interested in taking a trip back in time, a vacation in Qatar also allows explorers to discover modern cities boasting outstanding museums, a lively arts scene, and an eclectic culinary heritage. In a country that embraces the future without forgetting its past, it's still possible to spend time learning about the centuries-old art of falconry or ride off into the sunset on the back of a docile camel.
