Currency: Qatari Riyal
THREE things we did not know about Qatar:
- Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world. It has the 6th highest GDP per capital in the world, and the highest in the Middle East.
- In 2008, George Michael was the first openly gay performer to give a concert in Qatar. Homosexuality is illegal in Qatar and punishable by up to 3 years in prison.
- Camel racing is a multi-million-dollar industry centred on Al Shahaniya racetrack. Ever since child jockeys were banned in 2004, many camels are now ridden by robot jockeys.
