When to go Qatar

Because the heat is so fierce in the summer and sandstorms are so common in spring and winter, the best time to visit is November or late February to early March. During these times the weather is much milder, with pleasant, even chilly evenings and the odd rainy day. For the sports-minded, key international fixtures will make a trip to Qatar worth the effort whatever season, and, in Doha at least, there are plenty of air-conditioned facilities to make even the worst summer tolerable. It’s also worth remembering that summer brings to the desert its own consolations, like mirages and halos of heat above the sand.
