Food in Doha

What's good for the pigs is bad for the turkeys - you will forgo bacon, but perhaps substitute it for the turkey variety ( healthier than pig bacon). There's little booze to be found, except on aircrafts and none during Ramadan.

Hotels in Doha

Doha is home to the loveliest of hotels often at discounted rates. Try the Four Seasons, Musheireb or Amari (if you're a budget traveller).

Some history

Before oil was discovered Doha was a small, pearl-fishing village . Since the 1930s , Qatar has become the richest country in the world per capita. In addition to oil, Qatar has a growing natural gas industry.


Only a quarter of the 1.3m people living in Doha are locals. Nepali, Indian, and Bangladeshi immigrants mix with the Australian, South African and British working population.
