  • See the fascinating Film City
  • Visit Richard Serra's sculpture in the desert
Full description
Explore the west coast of Qatar and take the chance to see the majestic views of the west coast. Zekreet Fort has been dated to the late 18th or early 19th century. The fort's shape is quadrangular with four circular watchtowers. See the unique umbrella-shaped stone hut nestling on a limestone hill.

See the important sights of the Film city, built in Zekreet for use in film production. It has a large fort surrounded by palm trees.

Then go to visit the east-west west-east sculpture in the desert by Richard Serra. This breathtaking sculpture in the Brouq nature reserve spans over a kilometer and comprises four steel plates, each over fourteen meters in height. To guarantee perfect alignment, Serra examined the topography of the land and beautifully enhanced the vast, desolate space in the heart of the desert. See the spectacular, modern yet timeless result of his efforts.

Qatar in a car

I'm so glad this idea came to look for a guide. Jay and our Nepalese driver were warm faces for the country - very positive about it and full of passion about the things he wanted to show us. They've got you covered. And, my, this trip was one of my favorites of the five or six times I've been to Qatar - we went to film city and the East-West West-East sculptures, and they dropped us off with great tips on how to spend the rest of our day in Doha. Highly recommend them. They really helped us squeeze every drop out of our fourteen-hour layover. Qatar can be fun - get out and see it!
