Cheap flights to Doha would be a treat to any tourist looking for a luxury filled vacation in one of the most quickly growing cities of the Arabian Peninsula. Being the largest city of Qatar and also bearing the responsibility of being its cultural, educational and economic centre, Doha is rapidly gaining status as a major tourist attraction around the world. The prestige it is gaining is mainly account to it being the home to major international hotels (Ritz Cartlon, Grand Hyatt), the Museum of Islamic Art, magnificent mosques, architectural sites and recreational sites across the city. Doha was home to the 2006 Asian games, 2011 Pan Arab Games and the annual MotoGP race at the Losail Circuit. Arguably the biggest milestone the city will achieve will be to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, an event that is already bringing in improvements and changes in the city. Be sure to let TravelhouseUK book you through British Airways, Emirates, Qatar Airways or any other airline connecting to Doha, to get you on track for a memorable vacation.
There is a direct flight from all major airports in the United Kingdom to Doha. These airports in the UK include Manchester, Edinburgh, Birmingham, London Heathrow and London Gatwick Airports.

Qatar has been blessed with mineral recourses, wealth and all sorts of attractions, but when it comes to weather, the country can have sweltering summers. The best time to visit Doha is in between the months of December and March. Visiting Doha in the winters can resolve this issue, as the temperature remains from15°C to 25°C during the above mentioned time frame. The city receives little to no rainfall during this season as well, which makes it the best time to explore Doha and all her wonders.
The cheapest time of the year, naturally, are the months of June and July when the sun ceaselessly scorches the desert sand around Doha. The temperatures regularly remain in the early forties in the high summer. Fortunately, Doha is an ultra-modern city that has been developed keeping the adverse weather condition in mind. Travellers coming to Doha in the summer would be driving in air-conditioned cars, walking in climate controlled malls and staying in centrally air-conditioned hotels. Your exposure to the heat would be somewhat limited. Ordinary travellers avoid visiting the Middle East, in general, in the summers, so the prices come down a bit. You can get a hotel room and a ticket for a bargain in July.
Hamad International Airport (DOH) is the airport that serves the shining city of Doha. The airport replaced the older Doha International Airport and was opened for traffic in 2014. The new airport has been designed to process 50 million passengers a year. Hamad International is the primary airport for Qatar Airways, which is one of the leading airlines in the world. In 2017, 35 million passengers went through the gates of the airport. Hamad International Airport has been made on reclaimed land and is only 13 kilometres from the city centre (Al Koot Fort). The car ride from the airport to the fort only takes 16 minutes.
British citizen can obtain a 30-day free tourist visa-waiver at the airport upon arrival in Qatar. Please note that you should have a British Passport valid for at least six months from the date you arrive in Qatar.
Doha is a world metropolis. It is one of the financial capitals that are vying for dominance in the Persian Gulf. The city has built many museums and squares in recent years, and also preserved the culture and tradition that Qataris hold dear to their hearts.
Next to the Gold Souq is Doha’s central bus station. From there the city is covered by rings of bus routes that go beyond the city limit. Finding a bus in the city is straightforward. The coaches are air-conditioned, and even some of the bus stands are climate controlled. There are two types of taxis in Doha: Karwas and limousines. The Karwas are metered and are much cheaper than the limos. The driver charges the passenger four riyals at the beginning of the trip. You can also employ the services of Uber, which has been operating in the city since 2013. Waving to stop a taxi is next to impossible in Doha since there is a shortage of taxis in this growing metropolitan. So plan accordingly, when you are getting around Doha.
Doha is the place for opulent and luxurious hotels. The hotels are designed to provide the best environment and comfort to its temporary residents and are staffed with professionals in the hotel industry.
