For fans traveling to the FIFA World Cup starting in November, tourism authorities in Qatar have introduced a variety of new attractions and events. The improvements will provide a variety of attractions and activities for travelers, from a winter wonderland in the desert to a paradise for water sports. With the World Cup ending soon before Christmas, Qatar hopes to profit from the predicted influx of over a million tourists. “The countdown to the World Cup is well started and there are tons of world-class attractions to come before the matches begin,” said Berthold Trenkel, chief operating officer of Qatar Tourism. We believe that among the excitement surrounding the actual tournament, visitors will be awed by Qatar’s cutting-edge new tourism developments, greatly enhancing the country’s appeal as a top vacation spot. There are many new resorts, spas, and restaurants available for travelers searching for a more peaceful holiday. New beaches are available for those wanting sun, sea, and sand. 5 fresh attractions Wonderland of Winter For the Doha Winter Wonderland, which will debut in Qatar on a sandy island, bring sunscreen and sunglasses. Visitors to Doha Winter Wonderland will be able to relax on the beach in wonderful average temperatures in the mid-20s, as opposed to the freezing cold conditions that welcome visitors at the renowned sister event in Hyde Park, London. Doha Winter Wonderland will include cafes, restaurants, festival activities, 50 rides, and seaside villas to spread holiday cheer throughout the Middle East. The new 200,000 square meter attraction, which will be located next to Lusail City just north of Qatar’s capital, will be run by IMG (International Marketing Group), the same organization that oversees Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park each year. Beach Kite Fuwairit (FKB) A short one-hour drive north of Doha is the coastal community of Fuwairit, which offers fantastic kitesurfing conditions thanks to reliable winds, great ocean water, and powder-soft sands. With everything for the sea and even more on dry land, the resort is built around the kitesurfer’s way of life. A yoga studio, fully-stocked gym, restaurants, a pool, and much more will be available. The Al Barari Outpost The Outpost, a stunning resort in the incredibly rare Inland Sea natural reserve, will be the first of its type in Qatar and will combine eco-awareness, sustainability, and opulent hospitality. 21 opulent lodges with private pools and rising sand dunes surrounding them will serve as the ideal escape from the busy city life.

In addition to beach clubs, a water park with 36 rides, including “The Icon Tower” zone, will be located on Qetaifan Island North.

Stargazing, hot air ballooning, and immersive desert walks where you will learn about the local wildlife will be among the experiences on offer, alongside “Emerge in Nature” spa treatments and sensational culinary experiences. North of Qetaifan Island Billed as the first “Entertainment Island” in Qatar, Qetaifan Island North will feature floating hotels, beach clubs and a water park with 36 rides – including “The Icon Tower” zone, featuring an 85-metre-high slide set to become the highest of its kind in the world. The island, which spans 1.3 million square meters, is close to the Lusail Stadium, where the World Cup will be held. Project for West Bay’s North Beach West Bay North Beach is an extensive new tourism development being constructed, covering 40,000 square metres of a premium beachfront in the heart of Doha. The public and private beach areas will offer three distinct beach experiences with a wide variety of food and beverage offerings, to create a sought-after city beach experience for everyone to enjoy. The wave of new resorts and attractions adds to a flurry of openings in Qatar over the last couple of years. In March, the 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum opened. Desert Falls Water & Adventure Park opened last year with 28 slides and rides. And last summer a theme park called Quest Doha was unveiled featuring the world’s tallest indoor rollercoaster.
