Summer in Qatar 2019: An unforgettable experience

Manisha Choudhari

Heralding the beginning of a vacation, Summer in Qatar offered many indoor and outdoor activities, shopping and travel offers, along with unlimited entertainment!

Qatar National Convention Centre was host to a number of shows, some of which were making their debut in Doha! World-renowned Blue Man Group tour stopped by, as did the Smurfs Live show and Hello Kitty Live show! Lusail hosted the South Indian film fraternity, who were in town for the South Indian International Movie Awards (SIIMA).

People also had a chance to go out and about — some indulged in a Doha city tour or visited the northern and western coasts. Those looking for an adrenaline rush were spoiled for choice between Desert Safari Qatar, Monster Bus Desert Excursion, Arabian Horses tour, hiking, kayaking, and Whale Shark diving. Those interested in culture could check out the numerous wonderful museums Qatar has to offer and treat themselves to a Doha Dhow cruise, combined with a fishing experience or dinner. While the festival has ended, these outdoor activities are ongoing.

As temperatures outside soared, many establishments offered indoor activities to help beat the heat. There was something for everyone — For gamers, Doha Festival City played host to the e-sports Gaming Festival, alongside regular Virtuocity operations. Sports lovers could participate in Tawar Mall’s Sports Mania and Lagoona Mall’s Football Fiesta. Those who wanted to get moving had the chance to indulge in activities in Circusland at Tawar Mall, Summer Entertainment City at the Doha Exhibition & Convention Centre, Wonderpark, and Go Fun at Gulf Mall. Additionally, kids were able to meet some of their favorite characters from Ice Age, Justice League, MCU, Spongebob, Paw Patrol, and Angry Birds! Moreover, attractions like Kidzania, Bounce, Megapolis, KidzMondo Doha, and Snow Dunes helped everyone cool off indoors!

Summer in Qatar 2019 gave tourists and residents alike the opportunity to see Qatar’s beauty, and enjoy varying experiences, making it one of the biggest events of the year!
