"Kind of cheesy" Doha Tourist Trap Tip by ElCidRugger

Doha Tourist Traps: 7 reviews and 2 photos

  Authentic Arab culture...and Chili's
by ElCidRugger

Well, this sounds awful but this whole place feels kind of like a tourist trap. Don't get me wrong, there are some exciting things to do and see here. But a lot of it feels forced.

Unique Suggestions: Roll with it. You're at the authentic Corniche and you see a giant bill board for Coca-Cola. Not much you can do but grin and bear it.

Fun Alternatives: If you're looking for authenticity stay away from the city center. The place is a commercial giant and any quaintness was pushed far away.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
