The packed itinerary also included a desert safari where a group of players traveled with the Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) to discover Qatar's beautiful Inland Sea and relax in a typical desert camp. Players from the team also discovered Qatari culture while visiting the Msheireb Museums to learn more about the country's history, and were treated to a traditional Qatari meal on the rooftop of the majestic Shangri-La Hotel, where they had a glorious view of Doha's Corniche.
