WINTER is over and SUMMER is just around the corner. And during this time, some of you might be thinking of some place cooler and relaxing. In this TOURS-DAY episode – where we devote Thursday for travel or “staycation” related blog post, we will bring you some of Qatar’s newest and most affordable hotels.
