    Doha Things to Do

    Fanar Islamic Centre has a minaret with a special shape: It looks a bit like the "tower of Babel" with a large spiral going up the tower. I passed by it in some distance on my way from the hotel to the airport. There is a mosque in this building as well as a library, some lecture rooms etc. for more details, please click on the link below.

    Doha Things to Do

    Unless you live in one of the high-rise hotels, you will need some kind of transport to get to the beach. Most, if not all beaches close to Doha are part of any of the high-rise hotels. However, most of them will let you use the beach for free. Haven't tried the Sheraton which is the closes to the city but was well received in the Intercontinental...

    Doha Things to Do

    Here is a completely non-cultural activity that's certainly a fun diversion. It's simply a ice ramp, that you can pay to slide down. For only 15QR, you officially get two rides down. It wasn't busy when we were there, so as long as we brought our tubes back up, the guys let us continue. He even slide down with us once and filmed a video clip of us...

    Doha Things to Do

    The entry fee for this well maintained zoo is around 5 QAR per adult. You can see lots of animals from elephants to snakes in clean surroundings. The highlight for me was the chance to feed the indian elephant. Best to check entry times by phone and also whether it is "family day" or "Women and children only" as these can vary.

    Doha Things to Do

    You don't have to look far to see camels in Qatar. There are signs that show where camel crossings are. Since camel races are a big event in that country it is not too uncommon to see camel farms with cames roaming close to the road. Be careful not to hit them. Rumor has it that if one is hit in the daytime-it is your fault and you will have to pay...
