What's new and coming soon to Qatar

How do you go on the best holiday ever? It’s simple, really. You book a ticket to Doha! And when you do, you’re quite literally going to have the best vacation for a long time to come.
Qatar is safe for everyone (3rd safest country in the world), it’s convenient (travel times within the city range between 5 and 20 minutes) and it’s jam-packed with the best activities in the cultural, dining and entertainment scenes.
But these aren’t the only reasons Qatar is an impressive city. Aside from hosting FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Qatar has a full-fledged plan to achieve sustainability as part of the Qatar National Vision 2030, which addresses various categories of development in the economic, social and environmental fields. Landmarks like the National Museum of Qatar (featured in Time Magazine’s 100 Greatest Places in the World) and The Pearl-Qatar are perennial favourites – but we’re curating the best of what’s new and all the things to look forward to as Qatar prepares to host the world’s most iconic sporting event in 2022.

What’s new

Want to do something you’ve never done before? Ride the world’s tallest indoor roller coaster at Doha Quest, a first-of-its-kind theme park featuring more than 30 adrenaline-pumping attractions. Looking for the next level of thrill? Venture out to a rock climbing and canyoning experience with the family at Desert Falls, a brand-new waterpark at Hilton Salwa Beach Resort. With plenty of shade, restaurants and additional activities such as go-karting, diving and laser tag, Desert Falls should sit at the top of your new go-to list of attractions to explore in Qatar.
From dining high up in the sky at Saffron, Banyan Tree’s authentic Thai restaurant on the 24th floor, to right down below in the underwater restaurant at Hilton Salwa Beach Resort, Doha is a city of incredible culinary experiences. Whether it’s traditional Uzbek food at Afrasiyab or contemporary, fusion, Sri Lankan dishes at Nourlaya, there is a whole world of cuisines you can experience.

What’s next

In 2022, you could be taking enviable photos for the ‘Gram at the 100,000-LED Burning Man Tree at Dream Doha hotel or living it up at the sustainable Qetaifan Islands where you’ll find six beaches, the highest waterslide in the world, a 1.2km-long salt canal linking to the sea at Linear Park, a luxury beach club with an infinity pool and so much more.
Fancy a little bit of shopping? You can get a taste of Rue De La Paix at Place Vendome, the most anticipated luxury retail destination popping up later this year. Or just head over to Le Printemps’ second-largest flagship store in the world after Paris.
There’s so much to look forward to. Just remember, you’re not holidaying in another run-of-the-mill destination. You’re experiencing a city that’s on its way to becoming one of the world’s greatest. Whether you want a trip of world-firsts or a quintessential bucket list experience filled with new and exciting things, Doha is exactly where you need to be.
