Home of the Corniche Promenade
Doha, located along the Persian Gulf, is the majestic capital city of Qatar. Although primarily a desert, it is also home to beautiful mangroves and lush greenery.
Historically nothing more than a fishing village, Doha presently sports a modern skyscraper-filled skyline. An extremely well-planned city, it boasts of souks, premium retail outlets, seemingly endless boulevards, mosques, along with fresh green pockets.
The city's primary population consists of thousands of expatriates, most of whom have South Asian origins.
The Corniche Promenade, one of the most iconic landmarks of the city, is a waterfront along the Doha Bay. It is customary and almost mandatory for tourists to mark their visit here with an enjoyable dhow ride.
During the month of Ramadan, make sure to check out the Old Airport area at sunset. A cannon is fired every day, informing locals that their fast is over.
For Indian tourists
Doha is a business hub and is largely populated by the expat community. It is not hard to find people who speak fluent Urdu, Hindi, and even Malayalam. However, it may be a little hard to find a good hotel in Doha on short notice.
Visas will have to be procured in India itself before setting out on the trip.
Hotels in Doha
If you are considering backpacking it here, opt for budget hotels in Doha that are located near Souq Waqif and Hamad Street. Due to their proximity to malls, local shops, supermarkets, and gardens the Madinat Khalifa and Al Wabb areas are very popular with families.
The Souq Waqif, Museum of Islamic Art, Omani Market, and the Qatar National Museum are some important places on the Doha itinerary. Staying close to the City Centre is recommended for tourists since it allows them to conveniently tick these items off their Doha bucket list.
Business travelers can opt for accommodation in and around the West Bay area as well as Al Matar Street. These areas house some of the best hotels in Doha that offer conference rooms and Wi-Fi services amongst others.
Things to remember
- Qatar is an Islamic country and thus the dress code observed here is quite conservative
- Public eating, drinking, and chewing gum are decreed illegal during the holy month of Ramadan
- You should ideally ensure your midriff, shoulders, and knees are covered when in Doha
