When people in our offices first saw this photo no one knew where an indoor skating rink this unique would be located. Do you know where it is?
You might not guess it, but this is actually in Qatar! The rink is in the Gondolania theme park, one of the most unique in the world. It has canals, a ballroom, go karts, a bowling alley, and many more awesome attractions!
It should really come as no surprise. The country boasts the second highest GDP per capita in the world (roughly $100,000 USD in 2011), and has been chosen to host the 2022 World Cup, making it the first country in the Middle East to do so. The economy of Qatar, like so many other countries in the region, is based on oil, and the growth that it has brought is nothing shy of amazing. There’s a lot to see and do, so when you’re ready to explore all that this modern up and coming country has to offer, a car rental in Qatar is a great way to get around at your own pace.
