Which One Pass Is Right For Me?
The Silver Pass will be worth your money if you are a regular tourist who wants to experience Qatar’s art and culture without denting your pocket.
If you plan to attend the Fashion Show / Concert, it is better to buy the Gold or Platinum Pass as you can save on the ticket prices, get access to up to 10 more exhibitions, and get an extra discount at gift shops.
If you genuinely want the full VIP experience and don’t mind spending extra, go for the Diamond Pass. Only Diamond Pass gives you exclusive access to the QC VIP Lounges. Considering the luxurious standards of VIP Lounges in Qatar, we are sure it would be an experience worth cherishing.
