On November 20, 2022, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 was officially opened with a spectacular ceremony held at the glamorous 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor (about 50 kilometer North of the capital city of Doha). It was a dream come true that’s almost twelve years in the making. For nationals and residents of the country, it’s their pride and honor to be bestowed the privilege of hosting such a prestigious sports event.
Aside from the popular football players who are in the country during the 29-days tournament, the World Cup event was made even more special because of the participation of several global celebrities, one of them, Jeon Jungkook – who is a member of the global sensation BTS. His recent visits to Qatar has become the talk of the town and ARMY (the fans club of BTS) couldn’t contain their excitement on the thought of him being in Qatar of all places… and to have even just a glimpse of the superstar.
Korean groups like BTS are very popular that most of the places that they visit became instant “tourist attractions” where fans also visit to try out the same food, the same products, the same experience, as their idol celebrities. So we thought of doing the same and show the different places that Jungkook have visited in Qatar.
While checking out his social media, we noticed also that aside from work, he was able to squeeze in some free time visiting few restaurants, shopping outlets, and did some leisure activities… even grooving while walking inside a luxury shopping malls in Qatar proving that he is enjoying his stay and he is comfortable and feeling secured.
Note: Photos shared are from various social media channels which are already available online. We shall be updating the list in case we missed some more and add recent photos of actual places.

We are so proud of this country that we want everyone to know the level of safety and security, as well as the many progress and developments here that caught the attention of celebrities like Jungkook (checkout David Beckham’s videos at VISIT QATAR page). We are not in any way trying to breach security or privacy protocols and if any, please advise us.
