It's cold in the desert so bring a jacket...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are going to Qatar in February bring a jacket. It might be a desert country but it's cold in the evenings, and sometimes even in the day time. Most of the days I had to use my winterjacket because the wind was cold.
A raincoat wouldnt be a bad choice either, cos it does rain, even in Qatar! sometimes for 2-3 days in a row!Add to your Trip Planner
Luggage and bags: Samsonites
Miscellaneous: If you visit an european (especially germans) try to bring some pork-sausagges for them.
It's not legal, because pork is forbidden, but if you get caught they just take it away.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: As in the rest of the Arabian Gulf, shorts are best worn only on the beach. Don't wear them in town and most certainly not in traditional suqs or villages. This is especially true for women.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you have sensitive skin, definitely bring a good sunscreen along. High protection preparations are not readily available.
Photo Equipment: If you have a digital and bring along a battery charger, make certain it is either dual voltage or you have a transformer along. The current is 240v, 50 cycle, and they use British-style plugs, the huge, clunky ones. Make sure you turn on the switch alongside the outlet, too. Otherwise, your batteries won't charge up!Add to your Trip Planner
