Katara Beach holds Dragon Boat races. This 2000-year old Chinese tradition has been causing waves in Doha since 2013, when it was introduced. Doha Dragons offers lessons for all levels of expertise, including inexperienced and although you don’t have to be super fit, a general level of fitness is required. Dragon Boating also features races for the young between 12-18 as well as older citizens. Amateur competitive teams usually train 2-3 times a week, with recreational teams training once a week. Stop by at the Katara Beach and give it a go. It’s a great way to meet people from different nationalities and try something different even if you are passing through Doha.
