18 February 2020

Boasting a vibrant array of entertainment, a wealth of captivating architecture and a rich variety of charming cultural and historical attractions, Qatar is a truly unmissable destination for any type of traveller. With enhanced infrastructure and a plethora of unique attractions and magnificent hotels set to open in 2020, there’s never been a better time to visit Qatar.

Enhanced Doha Metro

Having recently undergone a multitude of improvements, Doha’s automated Metrolink provides visitors with easier, safer and cheaper access to many of Qatar’s finest attractions. Thanks to this incredible renovation, it’s now even easier to enjoy the stunning sites, sumptuous cuisine and divine landscape of Lusail City.

On the newly opened Red Line, you’ll also have effortless access to the enchanting village of Katara, the bustling Souq and the mesmeric Doha Corniche. Connecting the National Museum, the Villaggio Mall and the Aspire Zone Sporting Complex, the Gold Line provides visitors with greater access to some of Qatar’s truly iconic landmarks.

One-year anniversary of the iconic National Museum of Qatar

Designed to be both immersive and experiential, the National Museum of Qatar treats visitors to a sublime variety of culturally enriching exhibitions. Celebrate the one-year anniversary of this astonishing icon by admiring the museum’s wealth of captivating artefacts. Divided into three chapters (Beginnings, Life in Qatar, and the Modern History of Qatar), each theme provides visitors with a marvelling experience across 11 galleries. Enjoy sumptuous cuisines at the stunning rooftop restaurant as you are mesmerised by the view of the beautifully landscaped park.

Phenomenal golfing facilities

As the hosts of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters since 1998, it’s unsurprising that Qatar boasts a wealth of world-class golfing facilities that cater to every player’s needs.

In addition to its 18-hole championship course, the popular Doha Golf Club also hosts a floodlit nine-hole academy course, divine restaurants, stylish lounges and impeccable conference rooms. Those looking to hone their skills will find nowhere better than the revolutionary Education City Golf Club. Specially crafted and designed by two-time Masters Champion Jose Maria Olazábal, this club comprises 33 holes split across an 18-hole, nine-hole and six-hole course. This incredible facility also features a TrackMan driving range as well as state-of-the-art learning and practice facilities housed in the Centre of Excellence.
