The Adrenaline-Packed Sightseeing Tour: Explore Qatar
DOHA, Qatar, May 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Qatar Tourism has released stunning images of Qatar’s waterfront to encourage visitors to take a jet ski tour around Doha and soak up the sights beneath a single angle.
In partnership with local water sports operator ‘Qatar Water Sport’, Qatar Tourism has launched a personal watercraft tour offer where travelers will be guided along the capital’s coastline to visit an iconic selfie spot after the other.
Qatar Tourism’s Chief Operating Officer, Berthold Trenkel, said: “Perched on the calm waters of the Arabian Gulf, Doha is the perfect location for an adrenaline-filled sightseeing tour like no other. The most breathtaking buildings in the country are all on display. from the sea and glisten in the sun all year round. For travelers looking to fill their Instagram feed with only the most spectacular photos, nothing beats a jet ski tour in Doha.”
Starting from the south of the city, here is an overview of the best spots to see during a jet ski tour in Doha:
One of the most impressive new venues for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Stadium 974 will become the first fully dismantled stadium in FIFA World Cup™ history. From the water, you’ll get an unobstructed view of the stadium’s unique design featuring 974 shipping containers and demountable construction units. 974 is also the telephone code for Qatar.
National Museum of Qatar
The creation of renowned French architect Jean Nouvel, the National Museum of Qatar is designed using interlocking cantilevered discs to recreate the natural crystalline formations known as the desert rose. Drawing inspiration from the country’s history and geography, the museum covers 40,000 square meters.
The Doha Corniche is a seven kilometer promenade filled with parks, restaurants and cultural attractions. One of its most eye-catching new additions is the Official FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Countdown Clock, powered by Hublot. The striking large red timepiece is inspired by the emblem and hourglass of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.
Islamic Art Museum
The Museum of Islamic Art, designed by architect IM Pei – famous for the glass pyramid of the Louvre in Paris – features curious geometric patterns designed to create a sense of eternal repetition. Passing by on a jet ski, riders won’t be able to miss the ‘Eyes of Doha’, the building’s colloquial nickname as the top of the museum appears to recreate a woman’s face covered in a burqa.
the west bay
The skyscraper-laden heart of Doha, West Bay is a dazzling mix of towers of all shapes and sizes. Among the structures is the Doha Tower, designed by the same architect as the National Museum; Tornado Tower, which stands out for its simple design; Palm Towers, two hexagonal skyscrapers that recreate palm trees in glass; and the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort and Convention Hotel, an iconic triangular landmark that was West Bay’s first major structure when it opened in the 1980s.
Al Safliya Island
This small uninhabited island is a natural paradise left as nature made it, with few facilities. Al Safliya is ideal for sunbathing, with wooden parasols on the beach to allow visitors to enjoy the good weather. In the distance, the views of the Doha skyline make for a wonderful sight – the most scenic spot for taking pictures.
Katara Cultural Village
Katara is Doha’s go-to destination for art, culture and cuisine. From the coast you can see the wide beach on one side and the twin hills of Katara on the other. In the middle is the great amphitheater of Katara, an impressive open-air venue that combines classic Greek design with Islamic features.
A huge man-made island near the prestigious West Bay area of Doha, The Pearl-Qatar features marinas lined with Mediterranean-style yachts, residential towers, villas and hotels. Often referred to as the “Arabian Riviera,” a jet ski tour of the island gives a taste of the modern lifestyle enjoyed by its residents.
City of Lusail
Lusail City is one of the most technologically advanced cities in the region and will be the heart of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, hosting the Lusail Stadium which will host the tournament final. Overlooking the city’s marina district from a jet ski, there’s no more sensational sight than that of the soon-to-be-completed Katara Towers, an architectural translation of Qatar’s national seal – representing traditional scimitar swords. Time it right and you can watch the sun go down between each “sword”, which will launch later this year as the Fairmont Hotel and Raffles Hotel & Residences.
