Qatar Visit: 2009-1
2009-03-02 - I had layovers in doha on both legs of a passing-by flight. My return one was an 8-hour layover, so I walked out of the transfer section of the airport, buying an on-arrival visa, found an ATM, hopped in a cab, and had him take me somewhere open. (around 7pm on a saturday)I ended up going to "city center", which turned out to be the name of a large mall rather than the actual center of the city :-/Either way, it was a good ride around, saw good parts of the city, drove by the new islamic museum, the driver eagerly pointed out all the various sections of the city.I only had a couple hours, but my overall impression was that it was clean, safe, a little visually interesting if you haven't been to the middle east, but that there wasn't a whole lot going on there and I wouldn't go out of my way to make it an actual destination.Also, the airport was pretty crappy, and they like to try to get you to wait in an empty section with no stores/food/restrooms hours before your flight by announcing that your flight should immediately report to the gate.
