Doha is the capital of Qatar and the country’s most developed city. Although the country itself is known to be somewhat conservative, Doha is quite westernised. While it is not yet the preferred destination in the Middle East, that may soon change in the near future. Doha is home to many historical and cultural attractions, as well as a slew of attractions which were added recently. So, tourists visiting this Middle Eastern city will find plenty of things to do. Those looking for fun activities to occupy the entire family can try visiting some of the city’s major parks.
Qatar maybe a desert nation but it contains a large number of parks. Cool and filled with lush greenery, they are perfect spots to play games or have picnics. Since there are so many parks it can be difficult to decide which to visit first, although the Al Bida Park is a good place to start. The park is situated in Rameilah, right opposite the corniche. It is especially popular among families for its many fountains, lovely playgrounds and fantastical bridges. The park is usually quiet except in the evenings and during the weekends, when it becomes a hive of activity.
The park is not meant just for children and adults will also find plenty of things to occupy their time. Adults are sure to enjoy exploring the Heritage Village, which is found deep into the park. The structures in the village are modelled after traditional Qatari villages, and give visitors a glimpse into life in the rural areas. Cultural events are regularly held here and can be fun to take part in. Visitors should lookout for the Pearl Man who sells locally sourced pearls as well as memorabilia such as photographs and newspapers.
One good thing about visiting Qatar is that tourists get to enjoy the excellent public infrastructure. Those looking for a luxury Doha Qatar hotel can try the Kingsgate Hotel Doha. The hotel boasts an ideal location and is mere minutes from the city’s leisure and business sectors. It is the ideal accommodation choice for those looking for the best hotel Doha has to offer.
