The Tourism Information Centre at the border of Abu Samra crossing that had been established by the Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) is witnessing a greater amount of activity as the eight annual Qatar International Food Festival (QIFF) continues.
This grand festival is likely to record an impressive rise in the number of tourist arrivals.
This is due to the fact that it would coincide with the spring breaks of the neighbouring source markets of Qatar. The centre also provides visitors with all they need to learn about this 11-day festival as well as many other events and experiences they might enjoy throughout their stay.
In addition, Katara Hospitality, Regency Travel & Tours and Qatar International Adventures would also present their services to offer tourists with a unique experience.
Also, representatives would be nearby to assist with the staying facilities of the visitors, starting right from hotel accommodation to the outdoor excursions. Saif Al Kuwari, the Director of Public Relations and Communications at QTA, said that at QTA, people aim to improve the tourism experience.
QIFF, he added attracts a large number of visitors from all across the region who are eager enough to taste the various flavours of Qatar.
Next, he stated that they are grateful for the collaborative energies demonstrated by their different private sector partners and government agencies with a view to make these centres popular.
Another QTA kiosk has been opened inside the transit area of Hamad International Airport (HIA).
This would present an opportunity to the 30 million tourists passing through HIA to experience Qatar virtually with the aid of a video telescope showing 360-degree videos of the destination. The opening of the kiosk comes after an introduction of a free transit visa.
This permits the passengers of different nationalities with a minimum transit time of five hours at HIA to stay in Qatar for up to four days.
