Qatar Tourism - Khor Al Udaid
The Arab country of Qatar is one of the lesser known tourist spots in the world. The natural beauty of Khor Al Udaid attracts tourists with a love of nature.
The name 'Khor Al Udaid' literally translates into 'inland sea' in Arabic. The Khor Al Udaid in Qatar is a place of ethereal beauty in nature. The inland sea lies in the extreme south-east of the Emirate of Qatar. Khor Al Udaid is 78 kilometers distant from Doha, the capital city of Qatar. The term inland sea is a misnomer. The 'inland sea' is actually a naturally formed inlet of the Arabian Gulf. The sand dunes form an extremely beautiful sight. The dunes of Khor Al Udaid may rise up to a height of 40 meters in some places. They are formed by the effect of winds blowing across the region.
