Most teaching jobs in Qatar are located in the capital Doha, which has recently emerged as one of the Gulf regions’ megacities (along with Dubai and Abu Dhabi). 60% of the country’s 2-million strong population is concentrated in this city. Qatar is a peninsula in the Persian Gulf and it’s blessed with a great coastline dotted with beautiful beaches. If you move here, you’ll guaranteed sunshine 98% of the time, though after a while the hot climate can be a bit trying. Ottoman-era sights, glittering malls and skyscrapers mix easily here and you’ll find that there’s something for everyone. Moderate nightlife exists, but Qatar can be a better place for families and determined professionals. Unlike UAE’s diversions for those who love to go out, Qatar offers more wholesome activities like yoga, running, and cultural events.
