New project soon to revive Palm Island as tourist destination
The public works authority (Ashghal) has invited tenders for the design, build, and dismantling of bridges for Palm Island. Which is located opposite the Doha Sheraton hotel from the South, and surrounded by sea water on all sides. The island used to have a small resort and a restaurant to receive visitors, but it is no longer exploited as a tourist destination. The island has a history in the tourism renaissance that Qatar witnessed. Citizens and residents alike demanded that it be used as a better tourist centre. The Ashghal tender opens the door for re-using the island for tourism, as it was once considered one of the most important tourist attractions in Qatar.
