Whether you're looking for adventure or a family-friendly activity, Qatar has it all. The Qatar 365 team took part in fun activities enjoyed indoors and outdoors. Let's start with something unexpected: rock climbing. Laila Humairah went to Aspire Zone, home of Qatar's first outdoor climbing facility and EsQalar sports. Climbing enthusiasts can try different techniques - rope climbing, lead climbing, bouldering, or free climbing - on 10,5-metre-high walls made in the likeness of the famous Zekreet rocks in the West of the peninsula.

For a different kind of adventure, Laila met with Talal Altamimi, founder of the Freestylers Tribe, Qatar's pioneering parkour gym. The sport of Parkour is a fusion of running, climbing, jumping, and acrobatics and offers a unique way to conquer obstacles. Talal shared his journey, the challenges he overcame, and the skills he developed. He even designed a program for children, not just to teach them the sport but also to boost their confidence. With the sport's popularity on the rise, Talal envisions parkour as a potential Olympic discipline in the near future.

Finally, Aadel Haleem visited the LEGO show recently held at the Qatar National Convention Center for those looking for a mental rather than physical challenge. Unique Lego displays were constructed over 10,000 square metres; it was the perfect place for kids and the young at heart to admire amazing creations or to use their imagination to play and build with the legendary bricks.
