Gharafa Park

Al Gharafa park is claimed to be the first air conditioned park in the world alongside Umm Al Saneem Park that is currently closed. For walking and jogging trails around the park, Ashghal has installed an integrated cooling and air conditioning system that keeps the temperature between 26°C and 28°C. This cutting-edge cooling system tends to decrease operating costs by more than half. The family park AL Gharrafa is spread over 50,000 square meters and accommodates roughly 3,000 daily visitors.The tunnels outline the magnificent designs of Mashrabiya-style Islamic architecture. The air circulation within the premises is greatly influenced by the constructions.There are children’s sport venus and the park is open with no barriers. Solar panels have been put atop the corridors in several locations. This park has something for everyone and is a must visit.

 

Al Hazm Mall

Al Hazm, which means "upper grounds" in Qatari dialect, is a Doha landmark that offers unrivaled absolute luxury. Their shopping street is fully air conditioned and aimed towards the wealthy of the region, combining art, culture, and luxury in one location. This magnificent hand-crafted architectural setting pays homage to Italy's ageless elegance and Arabia's greatest hospitality. It is home to some of the best restaurants and cafes in the world, as well as prestigious fashion labels and memorable events. Its body decoration with a light system is quite remarkable. The temperature-controlling system in the sky is equally impressive. There is simple access throughout the site, along with numerous retailers. Visit there in the evenings to fully absorb the luxury atmosphere with your loved ones.

 

Oxygen Park

The 130,000-square-meter Oxygen Park in Education City invites students and tourists to exercise their minds and bodies while learning about the symbiotic relationship between oxygen, plants, and healthy cleansed living. The park is a green lung with sports fields, picnic spots, and walking and bike pathways. The landscape was designed to enhance passive cooling from the prevailing winds while also accommodating numerous sporting activities. The park's stunning, wind-sculpted environment was designed to reflect the country's hot, dry climate and cooling breezes. After intense workouts, the conditioned folly buildings provide cool resting areas and outdoor classrooms for instructional activities. Every part of the park's design reflects the park's commitment to the surrounding environment. It is accessible by the Tram System as well as the campus's bike and walking paths.

 

Galeries Lafayette

Galeries Lafayette, one of the world's most famous and outstanding department shops, has a fascinating history dotted with modernity and boldness. After the Eiffel Tower, the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann is the second most visited monument in Paris today. Galeries Lafayette has opened its branch in the conceptually-revolutionary 21 High st at Katara Cultural Village, Doha. It serves to provide a controlled, cool, and comfortable atmosphere and is the ultimate outdoor shopping destination to enjoy throughout the year. Katara is home to a lively and buzzing cultural scene, along with events, and activities throughout the year.  This will ensure that Galeries Lafayette will continue to attract good traffic while also providing guests with a varied range of shopping and entertainment options. Galeries Lafayette's aim is to fusing art and culture with fashion and retail as part of the overall experience.


Souq Waqif

If you have lived in Qatar, you have certainly visited this spot! One of the most atmospheric places to visit in Qatar is the bustling Souq Waqif. The area, which was built on the site of a historic market, is still the social hub of Doha.  3ft air-conditioning machines pump cool air upon café customers in the renovated Souq Waqif market which houses shops, restaurants, and modest hotels. This appears to be one approach to get customers to appreciate outside dining. The souq is one of those places in Qatar that is always buzzing with activities and people passing by. There are also cooling units through a maze of stores, restaurants, and modest hotels. The intense evening heat is relieved by cooling units stacked along a street at the outdoor Souq Waqif market.
