Voice of Travelers to Qatar

Qatar is a gem of a country on our planet and worth the air ticket.

I recently had the pleasure of working in Qatar. I had everything paid for including my air ticket to Qatar and accommodation in Qatar. I was very nervous before my company booked my ticket for me but I was assured that life in Doha is great - it most definitely was. There is hardly any crime and no acts of terrorism even though Qatar is in the midst of an area gripped by terror. Qatar was special and unique and I would book my own ticket and visit Qatar again for sure.

Booking a ticket and flying with Qatar Airways is booking a ticket flying with style.

I always book my air tickets with Qatar Airways because of their fabulous quality of air ticket service. The ticket prices are very affordable but this does not take any quality away from this aviation service. My ticket includes 2 meals (I travel from the USA to Qatar) and an endless supply of entertainment to my disposal. The staff are so friendly and are always there to ask if I need help or would like something. I felt so comfortable flying with Qatar Airways and I would definitely buy another ticket with them when I travel to Doha in the future for business.

Qatar is a beautiful place with an amazing mix of culture.

Only in Qatar can you find more foreigners than locals. This strange fact intrigued me as I booked my ticket to Qatar. I went to Doha a bit disappointed with my choice in the destination but I was extremely surprised when I got to Doha. Qatar is still so full of its own culture and is proud of what it is. I could see this in every Qatari face I met. I found this amazing and it made me want to buy another ticket and go back to Qatar the next year for my holiday. I would tell anyone to buy their ticket and go to Qatar for their next holiday. The air ticket is very worth the price.
