Qatar’s tourism industry has strived despite the global Covid-19 pandemic, with Doha ranking third on Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2021.

Doha has secured third place on the ‘Trending Destination’ list on Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2021.

Qatar’s tourism sector has boomed compared to global benchmarks despite the challenges posed on the travel and tourism industry by the global Covid-19 pandemic.

“The shining jewel of Qatar, Doha is a multicultural city, home to most of the country’s population as well as expatriate communities from a range of origins. Shopping abounds in the city’s plentiful malls, while the Corniche impresses visitors with picturesque architecture and dazzling views of the harbour. Doha boasts myriad cultural facilities, including the futuristic Education City and the National Museum,” said Tripadvisor.

As it gears up to welcome the FIFA 2022 World Cup next year, Qatar has unveiled new properties that are part of the country’s mission to become a world-leading destination with aims to welcome tourists from all over the world.

In July, Qatar revealed it will be adding over 100 new hotels and hotel apartments to its  portfolio of properties as the Gulf nation prepares to host the biggest sporting tournament ever held in the region.
