If you’re visiting Qatar in December, you are in for a treat! The weather is not extremely hot – making the conditions suited to tour the country. From events to attractions, here is our list of things to do in Qatar this December!
The Football World Cup
It’s hard not to mention the football world cup in this list. It’s perhaps the main attraction if you’re visiting Qatar this December. The football world cup happens every 4 years, but this event is unique as it’s the first time it is being hosted in the Middle East.
Make the most of your trip and check official websites for match tickets. If you’re not booking tickets, don’t miss the opportunity to have a look around the stadiums and marvel at them!
We strongly recommend you to read our blog on the travel guide to Qatar for more details on travelling during the world cup.
