Your adventure begins when you’re picked up from Doha and begin heading north for around 40 kilometers. Your first stop will be Al Zubarah, an important archaeological site made famous by its old fort. A square-shaped site with circular towers in three of its corners and a rectangular tower in the fourth, this fascinating fort-cum-museum was built in 1938 during the rule of Sheikh Abdullah Bin Jassim Al-Thani and was erected upon the ruins of a neighboring fort. You’ll then move on to Al Ruwais to discover the Dhow Harbor and also pass by Al Jumail Abandoned Village & see remains of an old traditional village. Here you’ll take a short break at Ruwais beach to enjoy the fresh sea breeze. On your way back to Doha, you’ll pass by Al Khor, the second-biggest town in Qatar renowned for its gorgeous harbor and golden beaches.
