West Walk in Al Waab is a new destination to explore. The main courtyard is air-conditioned, so you can enjoy the many food options, check out the retail outlets and stroll around there.
This is an excursion you'll surely love. Enjoy a day out with the family by checking out Panda House Park in Al Khor. Meet the two giant pandas named Suhail and Thuraya, and the best part is that the park inside is completely air-conditioned.
You can stroll around Al Gharrafa Park's air-conditioned tunnel, jog and walk without worrying about the mid-day sun. Now you can put in those steps with ease outdoors, even during summertime!
This indoor theme park will keep you away from the sun and will also give you unlimited fun! Go on the rides, enjoy the roller coaster rides, and stop by for refreshments before continuing your day here.
Spanning 1.5 km, Katara Beach is a great place for some much-needed unwinding. There are plenty of things that can keep you busy.

This place is a natural beauty, with greenery, flora and fauna all over. It's a great spot to enjoy with the whole family, and many tour companies can help you with kayaking activities here!
At Al Karaana Lagoon, be surrounded by water and green areas. This spot is a favourite of nature lovers, photographers, and people who like going on road trips! Have you checked it out yet?
