    Excellent page, especially find the dress code and transport tip very useful. That skyline must look very different in 5 years' time!

    Well now I know what Doha is like. I have often wondered, and from your pages, it looks to be a very modern city. thanks for the tour.

    I agree with this, I see you have also actually tried to get around Doha too. It's impossible unless you hire a car and drive it yourself or hire a private driver, they always find you

    HI from dubai! I'm glad to see that Doha is "coming out of its shell" and hopefully it won't make the same huge mistakes dubai made. Interesting to see that doha also has a prostitution problem... didn't know that. Really enjoyed your tips / Jess :-)

    So, you managed to slip in a trip to Turkey AND a trip to Qatar without me noticing?! I'll check back later once you've added tips, as Doha looks interesting ;@P

    Nice photos from the Islamic Art Museum. I must go back to Doha to see it. Will return when you've completed your page.
