Doha City Guide

Brief History

Although the spot where Qatar now stands has been a fishing village for thousands of years, the city itself was not founded until the 19th century. Like the rest of the Gulf region, Qatar grew rich from oil and, in this case, natural gas. Fossil fuels made Qatar one of the wealthiest countries in the world, per capita. More than 80% of Qatar’s entire population lives in and around Doha, making it by far the largest city in the nation.

Transportation

The main airport for flights to Doha or anywhere else in Qatar is Doha International Airport. While direct flights to Doha are rare (most travelers have to stop in the UAE or Saudi Arabia first), they are becoming more important as this important rises in stature among Middle East travel hubs. The airport is located right on the edge of this relatively small city, only 3 miles (5km) from central Doha. A cab ride, the only reliable way to get into town from the airport, is fairly quick and inexpensive.

By far the most common way to get around Doha without your own car is to hail a cab or simply to walk. Cabs are reliable and the drivers are friendly, but there are not very many of them, so wait times can be extremely long. If you know you will need a cab during peak hours, book one at least 24 hours in advance. Fortunately, Doha is a very compact city, and walking around is easy for a person in good physical condition. This has the added advantage of giving you a chance to see more of the city than you would from inside a taxi. There is also a bus system that was initiated in 2005. The system has grown quickly and now covers most of the city, but is seldom used by locals.

Popular Attractions

  • One of the best features of Doha is the Islamic Cultural Center, a large spiral-shaped building aimed at teaching foreigners (especially non-Arab Muslims) about the religion of Islam, its history, practices, and contributions to world culture.
  • The seaside corniche is a great place to take a stroll while looking at the ocean and the busy Doha Port.
  • Like many Arab cities, Doha boasts a souq, or market, that is not to be missed. The maze of small streets and shops is charming by itself, even if you don’t intend to buy anything.
  • If you are interested in Middle Eastern politics and current affairs, Doha is a great place to be. It is the home of Al Jazeera, a major Arabic-language news channel, and also hosts regular debates, open to the public, where you can learn about current issues facing Arab countries.

Food

Qatar has the largest foreign-born population (proportionally) of any country in the world, so its food culture is very diverse. Immigrants from India and Pakistan are especially common, so food from this region is very good in Doha. There are also many American restaurants and global chains. For Middle Eastern food, the best restaurants are all clustered around the souq.

Tips for Travelers

  • Outside Doha is the massive Qatari desert. Consider taking a tour or renting a 4x4 to see the desert, which includes the famous Singing Dunes.
  • Be prepared for pollution! Although the problem is getting better, Doha still has poor air quality on many days out of the year.
