Amazing Doha, Qatar

In Amazing world, Destinations, Doha/Qatar, Middle East by Freestyle37 Comments

This time I decided to leave the airport and see the amazing Doha – capital of Qatar.

How to get from Hamad International Airport to the amazing Doha city center? Visa information.

It’s possible to get visa on the airport (about 30$/probably depends on a country) and then you’re free to hit the city. But the city is a little far away so you probably need a taxi (around 20$) – depends on a traffic. 😉 – which is really big on the evening. It was still worth to go, as I always wanted to see the amazing skyscrapers. I also found out that if Doha is your transit airport you can get free visa and shuttle bus which takes you around the city. You just need to ask for it on the airport. Well I didn’t know that at that time and I simply paid for it. It took a while on the airport to find out where to get a visa but finally I made it.

Public transport in Doha.

There are regular buses from the airport to Doha city center. But the problem is you need to buy a smartcard and charge it (you can buy it on the airport). There are also about 3 shuttle buses during day time taking you from the airport to the city center of Doha. I did not want to waste time and simply took a taxi, as I had only half day to walk through the city. I went directly to the district know from amazing skyscrapers. Generally I had a strange feeling walking among one of the most amazing buildings I have ever seen, simply situated in the middle of a desert. Half of the surrounding area is still under construction. Hundreds of people are working late evening so you can notice them everywhere on the streets. We all know the working conditions in those countries it’s a problematic story. Then I just took few kilometers walk along the bay. I guess one day (and night) is definitely enough if you just want to see the stunning structures. Of course Doha has much more to offer, especially if you want to see amazing Losail International Circuit, which you can find on my picture from the plane perspective. Outside the city is a desert but if you take a straight road through it it’s gonna drive you to absolutely amazing and empty beach. So if the heat of more than 40 degrees doesn’t bother you it’s nice adventure. While walking through Doha city in the late evening I was twice stopped by a luxury van with dark windows and asked what am I looking for. May be it was a security, may be someone was curious about my big camera and a purpose of using it..

  2. I am regular reader, how are you everybody?
    This paragraph posted at this site is really nice.

  3. I believe everything published was very logical. However,
    think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid, however what if you
    added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Amazing Doha
    – is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how
    they write news headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related picture
    or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.

      Hi Patricia, yes I’m using WordPress. I bought this theme but it was very cheap. There are many nice themes for free in WP. You don’t need any coding knowledge, although I did edit a little CSS for changing fonts or styles. But you really don’t need to do that. Good luck for you and if you need any help just write me! 😉
