Qatar Summer Festival 2016

Summer in Qatar is no joke! Temperatures go crazy and remember someone baked cookies in a car! Yes It’s not a surprise! The car feels like a preheated oven when you get in.

During summers the parks are empty and many people escape to cooler vacation locations and for the rest of them still here indoors is the shade! Dining out is the only outing we do. Thanks to the endless new dining spots being open up in Doha lately. There are also a huge number of dessert and juice bars coming up which makes summer a lot more cooler and bearable.

Qatar government makes sure the heat wave does not strike with social life and part of that initiative the Qatar Tourism Authority has opened up ‘Entertainment City’ at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre, located behind the City Centre in West Bay.
