Amlak has joined hands with Doha Bus, the first open-top sightseeing tour bus in Qatar’s capital, to introduce a new route that goes through Education City.

The new route will enable more tourists to explore Education City grounds, home to some of the world’s most prominent educational institutions, as well as Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar National Library, Qatar National Convention Centre, and Al Shaqab among others.

The bus will stop at Qatar National Convention Centre every hour on the hour and at Education City every 90 minutes – from 9am to 2.30pm. The last Doha Bus trip will be at 5pm.

The tour will weave through Education City’s hop-on, hop-off points every two hours, offering an opportunity to experience landmarks like the Arab Museum of Modern Art and the Qatar Foundation Student Centre along the way.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy a relaxing break from their touring activities at Doha’s first farm-to-table restaurant, Chef’s Garden. Located at the exclusive Marwan Club on Al Shaqab grounds, Chef’s Garden truly embraces the farm-to-table dining experience by partnering with local farms to bring locally grown and organic products to the consumer whenever possible.

“Our collaboration with Doha Bus opens new doors for Doha tourists and residents to experience Education City as, not only a local destination, but also an international hub that houses world renowned institutions, international research and cultural centres,” said Abdul Aziz al-Emadi, Amlak chief executive officer.

“By promoting this important Doha destination, we are advocating the vital role that the institution as a whole plays in the development and preservation of Qatar’s knowledge based economy.”

Speaking on the newly added bus route, Khalid al-Suwaidi, Doha Bus CEO, commented: “We have been in operation since 2012, and our aim is to showcase the best of what Qatar has to offer. Education City to us is more than a landmark, it is an international destination. Thus, Partnering with Amlak to make this destination more accessible to the masses will offer a new perspective of our city to the visitors and residents of Qatar.”
