Qatar City and Beach Escape: Doha & Abu Samra

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,486

DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Get the best of a city break and beach holiday in one convenient package. Experience the rising star of the Arabian Peninsula, the capital Doha, explore Qatari cultural traditions, and head on a desert safari. Then connect to a beach resort at Abu Samra for several days of sun in the fun, which includes a pass to Qatar’s largest waterpark.


This 8-day Qatar vacation showcases the capital Doha as well as the beachside idylls of Abu Samra. It features first-class accommodations and private-guided tours.

Your trip to Qatar begins in Doha, the Qatari capital and a city on the rise, which is constantly reinventing itself with a rapidly-rising skyline and impressive array of cultural landmarks. You’ll discover the city on a private tour that takes you from the skyscrapers of the Corniche to the Katara Cultural Village to the manmade island of The Pearl-Qatar. That afternoon, join a local Qatari guide and head into the labyrinthine markets of Souq Waqif, where you’ll learn about Qatari cultural traditions and do some bartering for local goods. Another day, experience Arabian hospitality and Qatari traditions with a coffee (pronounced “gahwa” in local Arabic) experience at the Cultural House at Souq Waqif Al Wakra. Then board a 4WD vehicle for an adventure into the desert and dry inland sea, where the sand dunes shift and dance beneath the hot Arabian sun. You’ll ride across the sand dunes, visit the Inland Sea, and have the chance to ride a camel before returning to Doha.

From Doha, connect west to Abu Samra and the Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas, a massive beach resort complex where you’ll have 4 nights on this popular stretch of Arabian beach. Spend your days at leisure in the sun and enjoy access to the 20 on-site restaurants, Eforea Spa, and over 3.5km of pristine beach. You’ll also have a pass to the Desert Falls Water and Adventure Park, the largest waterpark in all of Qatar.

At the end of your Qatar tour, you’ll connect to the airport for onward travels.
