We are planning on visiting Doha at the start of March for a few days.
What are the more interesting sites to visit?
How many days should we allow?
The better hotels seem to be spread all around the city, so which area would be best to stay in?
We welcome all suggestions.
and we called the embassy of katar in germany and they said:may possible without visa,but couldn´t tell us how go for the right procedure.
no we don´t want to leave the airport.we have only 6 hours to change airlines.
the point is we would like to avoid paying a touristvisa 22 euro for this 6 hours and try to figure out,if there is a way to do without touristvisa.may be socalled transit voucher or "transit visa "for 24 hours(if existing?) or so..?.
because how to check in for the 2.flight and get our luggage without immigrating
thanks cachaseiro for your answer.does it mean,we need aregular touristvisa on arrival,or is there somthing like a transitvisa for this 6 hours.

We'll be in Doha after Christmas and over the New Year and wonder a few things: 1. Is it a given there'll be good fireworks visible from the corniche area? 2. are all dune-bashing trips safe/insured/etc? 3. Do any of the dune-bashing trips also incorporate camel rides? 4. Can you squeeze the Souq Waqif, Falcon Souq and Wholesale Market into one trip by taxi/driver/whatever? Thanks for any advice.

i am a Botswana citizen traeling to norway with a connecting flight to doha im there for 5 hours before departure.
Will I need some local money, or are US-$ and Euro-bills or CC OK as well ?
In principle I will try to get along without spending any money, but you will never know what comes up ?
My flight arrives at around 07.00pm, my transfers to and from the hotel are booked aleady and the hotel is payed as well.
I will just take a little walk in the evening and have to get to bed early.
Have to get up very early the next morning, so will there be any extra expenses for me ??
How about tips for the car-driver who gets me from the airport to my hotel ?
The fare is reserved and payed already through the travel agent !
Is a tip in US-$ OK ?
I have an itinerary from Chennai to Chicago via Doha on Qatar airways. The transit time is 1 hr and 40 mins. Is this transit time enough?
we are flying from Austria through Doha to Vietnam. We have approx. 8 hrs. 6:05 pm - 1:55 am. First, do we need a visa prior of arrival? i read in one of the answers that it takes over an hr. just to clear the area of getting the visa. is that true? lets say we get out of there by 7:30pm. is there anything else to do except the souk? any malls or such like in dubai? if we arrive back at the airport around midnight, is that early enough? thx!

I have just returned from visiting my husband in Doha and made use of ladies day at the intercontinental hotel and was wondering if anyone knew of other hotels that offered this facility.
I arrive at doha airport at 23 15 and leave in the morning(boarding time 07 55).
You think it is possible to get out, have some sightseeing(even at night), and come back in time?
I don't know if at night there's movement on the streets, taxis available, etc.

Hello everyone! I am flying to Chicago via Doha next week and I have a transit time there of about 20 hours. I have been reading some of the reviews and stories that people have posted on the net about the airport in Doha and it does not sound like a pleasant place to spend so much time. I have a Pakistani passport. Will I be able to get a transit visa to go out and sight-see since I cant spend that much time sitting around? Moreover can I get hotel stay or a meal voucher or something since the transit is long? I asked the travel agent this but he said this wont be possible as the airline we are going to be flying from Europe onwards does not have such a contract with Qatar Airlines. So can anyone help me? What can I do during the 20 hours? Being a Pakistani, can I get transit visa for a few hours to see the city rather than rotting at the airport the whole day long? And are there any good fast food places at the airport? I would really appreciate some guidance as this is my first time traveling via Doha. Thanks!
hi! im a filipino by blood. im planning to visit a friend in doha this coming december. what must i do? do i have to apply for a tourist visa first? if yes, what are the requirements?
I'll be having a long transit in Doha soon - from 12 midnite until 8pm (20 hours).
I'm thinking of going to Souq's area, walking by the sea or wondering in the modern city center shopping mall.
In view of the summer time I'm wondering whether Souq is open during day time or not ? Is it ok to walk around during summer or is the weather too hot to handle ? :)
I´ll go to the aiport at 23:15 until 7:00. Can I get a taxi to take me to the city and return to the aiport, a few hours later ? Do you know how much is it more o less ? I have read is difficult to get a taxi in the city.
Thank you !!
