Top 6 Staycation Destinations in Qatar
No travel, no problem!
Social distancing guidelines and travel restrictions are in place for your safety against COVID-19. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t take time off to recharge.
The good news is: You can still experience a fulfilling vacation this pandemic without leaving the country – AKA a ‘staycation.’
Staycation in Qatar
So, what’s this buzzword? Simply put: A staycation is a portmanteau of ‘stay’ and ‘vacation,’ which means a holiday spent in an area near you, rather than abroad.
Staying in is the new going away. Be a tourist in your own place!
Whether you’re self-isolating or working from home, your house may feel a bit claustrophobic. To ditch your isolation blues, inject some fun into your break by going on a staycation in Qatar.
If you want to try something different from a daylong Netflix binge, make sure you scroll all the way down.
