    Qatar – your new favourite stopover destination

    While we love living ‘down under’, we all know what this means for travel – it can take a long time to fly to some of our favourite places. That’s why a stopover is a great way to break up a long-haul journey and experience another destination along the way.

    Right now you could call it the hidden gem of the Middle East, but Qatar is quickly becoming a rising star for travellers heading to Europe or the UK. It combines new-world architecture, centuries-old traditions, world-class shopping, mouth-watering cuisine and hotels so luxurious you’ll wish you could stay longer. These new and undiscovered experiences are precisely where East meets West.

    Aussies thinking about travelling north can stop over from just $31 per person for two nights in three and four-star accommodation. You read that right, $31. A five-star hotel will set you back $48, while an ultra-luxury stay starts at just $202 including breakfast!

    Begin your stopover with a personalised meet and greet and private transfer directly to your hotel, where 24-hour check-in means you can choose to take a nap or head straight out to start exploring. The question is, what will you see first? We recommend the UNESCO heritage listed Inland Sea. Turn one holiday into two with a stopover in Qatar.
