The 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup will take place between November 21 and December 18 2022 in Qatar and promises to be an unforgettable experience for all.

An estimated 1.5 million people are expected to attend the event, and this number will include at least one million fans who will also be in Qatar for sightseeing.

For fans who are looking for adventure when they are not watching the matches, here are the five best places to visit in Qatar during the World Cup.

– Islamic art museum

Qatar as a country that focuses its tourism on museums and the arts. Everything they do includes local art that has been adapted from historical times. Being a Muslim nation, there is also a museum dedicated to art by Muslim artists and monuments depicting Islamic faith, Islamic history, and history of Islam in Qatar.

Not only are the 1,400 years of art and the monuments on display so beautiful to look at with its rich history, the architecture of the museum itself is another work of art with a lot of symbolism for the locals.

Katara Cultural Village

Katara Cultural Village is the hub of all art and history in Qatar. It differs from museums in that it is also a shopping center where you can buy the pieces you want.

In the village, you will see the full expression of all the arts that have been incorporated into the architectural design of the World Cup host stadiums.

If any design piques your interest while watching a match, visit Katara Cultural Village to learn more about it and perhaps pick out a souvenir for your return.

the pearl

This man-made island is the pinnacle of human architecture and urban planning. Always evolving with new structures, upgrades and experiences, it focuses only on properties that twinkle in the sun and shine in the dark, leading locals to call it the “Pearl of Qatar”.

There are so many things to do in The Pearl. And you enjoy boat trips or water games, this is the place for you.

Qatar National Library

Reading is more fun at Qatar National Library with its atmosphere that can turn even the most stubborn book-lover into a bookworm.

With over ten thousand books, some in their original prints, a lovely café to sit and have some coffee while reading and a breathtaking view of the city, it is the best place to unwind before you go and enjoy a game of World Cup later. today.

Al Zubarah Castle

Al Zubarah Fort is easily the largest tourist destination in Qatar. Located in the middle of nowhere in the vast desert that surrounds the country, it is a beautiful edifice that rises to meet you as you approach it.

It is the best place to learn about the history of the country and how they came to settle in the land now known as Qatar. It’s really a beautiful sight to see and very cool too.

This is a great site to visit on rest days, otherwise you could spend the whole day here and miss your game!
