A few years ago, Lusail City was non-existent. Today, it's on the verge of becoming Qatar's next popular destination for tourists and residents alike. The megaproject by Qatari Diar is set to become one of the largest smart cities in the world.
So if you haven't been to Lusail City, here are suggestions on what to do in the futuristic city plus what are the things you can expect in the near future!
Opened in 2018, the palm tree-lined Marina Promenade is Lusail's answer to Doha's Corniche. Although it sure is nice to take a walk along the promenade, it's not the only activity you can do. Feel free to go jogging/running, go biking, relax in one of the seats scattered along the route, enjoy the interactive fountains that light up at night, grab a coffee in one of the nearby food stalls, or just simply enjoy the scenery.
The 3km walkway is also the venue of Light Me Lusail, an International Light, Art, and Digital Media Festival, that was first held in December 2018.
Of course, those who love taking snapshots won't be able to resist taking a selfie or a group shot at the "I Love Lusail" sign.
#Lusail transforms into a unique food experience by bringing the most popular local street Eateries and coffee shops to the city.— Lusail City (@Lusail_City) January 8, 2020

Food trucks, coffee shops, food stalls made out of shipping containers, and unique food concepts are just some of the things you can expect from Lusail Marina Food Arena. It's up to you if you'll dine-in or drive-through, but one thing's for sure, you won't be leaving hungry.
Lusail City has its own share of unique looking buildings. The Marina Twin Towers look like colorful Lego blocks while the Waterfront Hotel looks like it has cubes coming out of the building. Other interesting buildings to watch out for include the Lusail Stadium, Katara Towers, Place Vendome Mall.

Opened in March 2019, the desert and sand dunes inspired park features "themed playgrounds, water features, shade structures, architectural features (kiosks, toilets, plant rooms, monuments) bike & pedestrian paths, plazas, seating areas, forested tree zones, open play lawn areas, sunken gardens, and ambient landscape accent/area lighting. For the sports enthusiast, a range of facilities is widely available such as; a football pitch, three basketball courts, two volleyball courts, three tennis courts, four bocce areas, a lawn bowling green, and bike trails," according to Lusail City.
Designed by DISSING+WEITLING and built by Samsung C&T, this circular suspension bridge is surely one of Lusail's icons. While it already looks amazing during the day, it's even more wonderful at night when it lights up.
You can easily get to Lusail using the Doha Metro, your own private transportation, or by taking the taxi/ride-hailing services.
