The Adrenaline Filled Tourism Tour: Discover Qatar

0

DOHA, Qatar, May 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Qatar Tourism has released stunning images of Qatar waterfront to encourage visitors to take a jet ski tour around Doha and enjoy the sights from a unique vantage point.

In partnership with local water sports operator Qatar Water Sport, Qatar Tourism has launched a personalized watercraft tour offering, taking travelers up the capital’s waterfront to visit one iconic selfie spot after another.

Berthold Trenkel, Chief Operating Officer of Qatar Tourism, said: “Perched on the tranquil waters of the Arabian Gulf, Doha is the perfect place for an adrenaline-pumping tourism tour like no other. The country’s most stunning buildings are all on display from the sea and glistening in the year-round sunshine. For travelers on the hunt to only fill their Instagram feed with the most spectacular shots, you can’t beat a Doha jet ski tour.”

Starting in the south of the city, here is a roundup of the best places to see on a Doha jet ski tour:

Stadium 974

One of the most impressive new venues for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Stadium 974 will be the first fully dismantled stadium in FIFA World Cup™ history. From the water you have a fantastic view of the stadium’s unique design with 974 shipping containers and collapsible construction units. 974 is also the country code of Qatar.

National Museum of Qatar

Designed by famed French architect Jean Nouvel, the National Museum of Qatar consists of interlocking cantilevered panes to replicate the naturally occurring crystal formations known as the desert rose. Inspired by the country’s history and geography, the museum spans a whopping 40,000 square feet.

Corniche

The Doha Corniche is a seven-kilometer promenade lined with parks, restaurants, and cultural attractions. One of the most notable additions is the Official Countdown Clock for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, powered by Hublot. The large, striking red watch is inspired by the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ emblem and the hourglass.

Museum of Islamic Art

The Museum of Islamic Art designed by architect IM Pei – famous for the glass pyramid in the Louvre in Paris – has odd geometric patterns designed to create a sense of perpetual repetition. As they cruise by on a jet ski, drivers won’t be able to miss the “Eyes of Doha,” the building’s colloquial nickname, as the top of the museum appears to replicate the face of a burqa-covered woman.

west bay

The skyscraper-laden heart of Doha, West Bay is a dazzling mix of towers of all shapes and sizes. Structures include the Doha Tower, designed by the same architect as the National Museum; Tornado Tower, which stands out for its sober design; Palm Towers, two hexagonal skyscrapers that replicate palm trees in glass; and the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort and Convention Hotel, an iconic triangular landmark that was the first landmark building on the West Bay when it opened in the 1980s.

Al Safliya Island

This small uninhabited island is a natural paradise left by nature with few facilities. Al Safliya is great for a stop in the sun, with wooden parasols on the beach for visitors to enjoy the weather. In the distance, the vistas of the Doha skyline offer a wonderful spectacle – the most picturesque place to take photos.

Katara cultural village

Katara is Doha’s destination for arts, culture and cuisine. From the coast you can see the extensive beach on one side and the two Katara hills on the other. In the center is the large Katara Amphitheater, a stunning open-air venue that blends classic Greek design with Islamic elements.

The Pearl Qatar

The Pearl-Qatar is a huge man-made island near Doha’s prestigious West Bay District and features Mediterranean-style yacht-lined marinas, tower blocks, villas and hotels. Often referred to as the “Arabian Riviera,” a swoop around the island on a jet ski gives a taste of the modern lifestyle of its residents.

city ​​of Lusail

Lusail City is one of the most technologically advanced cities in the region and will host and host the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ with the Lusail Stadium hosting the final of the tournament. Looking out over the city’s Marina District from a jet ski, there is no more spectacular view than that of the soon to be completed Katara Towers, an architectural rendering of Qatar’s national seal depicting the traditional scimitar swords. If you time it right, you can watch the sunset between each “sword,” which opens as the Fairmont Hotel and Raffles Hotel & Residences later this year.
