Qatar National Tourism Council captures dazzling pink super moon

Doha, qatar, April 28, 2021 / PRNewswire / – As astronomers around the world set down to observe the rare pink super moon (April 26 & 27), the Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) marked the epic event with the announcement of its new tailor-made range of astro-tourism experiences. Inspired by the starry sky of the Qatari desert, the astronomer-themed vacation has been organized for visitors to enjoy when the borders reopen.

Unique “Arabian Nights” packages, available for booking through Gulf Adventures and exchangeable until April 2022, offer must-see activities like a moonlit camel safari and stargazing with an astronomer. Also included are fireside barbecue dinner banquets and a stay at Regency Sealine Camp, where modern luxury meets authentic Arabian style, overlooking Khor al Adaïd, also known as the Inland Sea which is recognized by UNESCO – where the sea meets the desert.

Several of the new routes also include a visit to Souq Waqif and dinner at the spectacular Torch 360 Restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the Doha horizon.

New Exclusive Tours are a once in a lifetime experience, available to be enjoyed when Qatar reopen its borders until April 2022.

To invite travelers to take advantage of the Thousand and One Nights packages, QNTC in partnership with the local astro-photographer, Vinay Swaroop Balla, captured incredible photos of the moon rising above the country’s most iconic places, the Torch Tower and the Al Aamriya Desert. Qatar is an ideal destination for star and moon watchers, as the darkness of the desert provides stunning views of the night sky.

Director of Operations of the Qatar National Tourism Council, Berthold Trenkel, noted: “from Qatar the desert is a perfect place for astronomy enthusiasts to observe the dark and starry sky; the packages we have put together will provide unforgettable experiences that travel enthusiasts can expect to have when we welcome them back home. As a diverse and cosmopolitan country, this new offering is a dazzling addition to a host of activities that tourists can enjoy in Qatar“.

All packages will comply with the Qatar Clean program and measures will be in place to meet government guidelines.
