Qatar 2022: Qatari tourism industry gearing up ahead of the World Cup
Qatar 2022 will have plenty to offer in terms of attractions and activities for visiting football fans to ensure everyone is catered for throughout the tournament.
The 2022 World Cup will present Qatar with an extraordinary opportunity to promote itself even though the country is much smaller than many of the other nations which have held the showpiece event in previous years. Qatar will be seeking to provide visiting football fans with a host of appealing tourist attractions so that they will be able to soak up and enjoy the atmosphere of the Arab world as well as the excitement of experiencing the World Cup finals – international football’s most celebrated tournament.
Salwa Beach Resort is one of the many attractions on offer and a key tourist destination for many who will be over in Qatar for the World Cup.

The project is expected to be finished and ready well in advance of Qatar 2022.
