David Beckham stops over in Qatar

Qatar Tourism has launched a new stopover campaign in partnership with David Beckham.
The campaign uses Beckham’s recent 48-hour visit to showcase how Qatar can be a great stopover break for visitors.Beckham’s highlights included exploring the winding spice markets of Souq Waqif, soaking up local street art, cooking tacos, camping in the desert and sightseeing around Doha by motorbike.Through this new campaign, Qatar Tourism seeks to promote the destination as “one of the world’s best value stopover packages”.

Holidays with Qatar Airways start from £12 per person per night for a 4-star hotel, and £17 per person for a five-star hotel.

His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Chairman of Qatar Tourism and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, said: “It has been a pleasure to welcome David to Qatar, where he has immersed himself in the culture and experienced first-hand the warm hospitality of the people.

“I encourage the millions who transit through Qatar every year to follow in David’s footsteps and create their own exciting adventure and memories. We have something for everyone at incredible value, whether it’s sun, sea, sand, rich heritage and culture, surprising nature, or a modern and fun city break.”

Beckham said: “Qatar has surprised me with a wide range of great experiences you can have in just 48 hours. The people are warm and welcoming, and it is a great place to spend a few days.”

He added: “The people of Qatar are really passionate about their culture and the mix of modern and traditional creates something really special. I saw so much during my trip from spice markets to museums to enjoying a ride on my motorbike, which was one of the highlights.”
