Arriving in Doha

Book your flights to Doha with Etihad Airways and experience the Arabian desert in a novel and unique way, exploring a city which is every bit cosmopolitan and yet still remains close to its roots.

Plan Your Doha Holiday

Doha is a traveller’s paradise. You can travel to Doha and take a desert safari and cruise along its glorious sand dunes. If you enjoy exploring the seas then board a traditional dhow boat or hire a yacht and have a view of the Corniche riding the waves. You can also spend some time at the Barzan Olympic Park to have an unusual recreation and relaxation experience.

Doha is located in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula desert and has long scorching summers. Cheap hotels in Doha are readily available during the peak summer months. The best time for you to visit the city is between October and May. The winter months are more comfortable and activities are more readily available. If you are contemplating a visit during the holy month of Ramadan to experience the festivities, you must book your tickets to Doha early. Finding the best flight deals to Doha is easy on the Deals section of our website.
