Still curious to learn more about Qatar’s fascinating past? Drive an hour from Doha to explore Al Zubarah Fort, a restored 1930s-era limestone structure on a remote stretch of the country’s northwest coast. Together with the excavated remains of a deserted 19th-century village that was once an important hub of the region’s pearling trade, the 150-acre area has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors are free to explore the fort by themselves, taking in what’s left of the abandoned town. It provides a rare look back at a once-glorious chapter in Qatar’s history.
