Visit Muscat, the capital, the Muttrah Souq, the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Drive along the coast with its desert-scapes to a magnificent fishing village with its crystalline waters. In Doha, visit places of social and political
importance such as Al Jazeera, Katara, the Islamic Art Museum, the Pearl, the Souk Waqif, and Aspire which is preparing the Qatar 2022 FIFA world cup. Meet with members of the Qatari government and young Qatari students, and hear lectures by experts on regional politics.
