WHEN & WHERE?
The 2022 World Cup is a month-long affair, that will run from November 21, 2022 to December 18, 2022. The international tournament is based primarily in Qatar’s cosmopolitan capital city of Doha, although there are sporting venues throughout the country that will host matches.
Qatar is known for its blistering summers, but the country’s winters – especially November through March – offer a respite. During winter, temperatures hover in the 70s and 80s, and the World Cup will fall right in the middle of Qatar’s winter. Guests to the World Cup will be welcomed by excellent weather, with only the possibility of an occasional rain storm.
In addition to all the great football action, charter guests can also explore many of Qatar’s cultural and natural sights. Some of the top things to do on a Qatari yacht charter include:
Amazing Beaches – Qatar has 300+ miles of coastline and as such, there’s plenty of sandy, sunny beaches to explore. Favorites include Banana Island – a resort near Doha, known for its pristine palm-lined beach and water sports facilities – and Katara Beach, which boasts a beautiful view of the skyline and is just a short distance from many cultural sights.
Museums and Shopping – In addition to the National Museum, the Museum of Islamic Art is a must-see attraction, as is The Villaggio, one of the Middle East’s finest luxury shopping centers. At the Villaggio, you’ll find outposts for many of the world’s top designers.
Fine Dining – Qatar is home to numerous restaurants of the world’s most famous chefs. including Pino Lavarra, the executive chef at Al Messila, which serves Qatari cuisine.
