Travel nõuandeid ja hoiatusi Doha
Tourism Qatar has developed itself from being a poor pearl fishing country, to one among the richest Gulf states, due to the exploitation of oil and gas fields since 1940.
Majority of the country is covered by sand dunes and salt flats. The City of Doha is a rich mixture of traditional Arabic combined with modern architecture. Among those that are particularly interesting, are The Grand Mosque with numerous domes and the Abu Bakir al-Siddiq Mosque. The north has quite a few historic sites, such as Umm Salal Mohammed, which is a large village conquered by the ruins of 19th century fort.
Cultura Like a magnet, the Doha Museum of Islamic Art draws you to it immediately when seen from afar. I hasten my step to become part of this magnificent work of architecture as soon as possible. Approaching on a slight gradient punctuated by date palms on either side, I am suddenly inside the building. Left, right and front of me is the sea! Opposite the museum rise the skyscrapers of Doha City, each one a marvel of modern design. This must be the very definition of contrast born of aesthetics and synergy!
Food and drink Much to the degree that the Qataris have embraced air-conditioning, they have also, to a shocking degree, taken to American fast food chains.
Inside Villagio mall, for example, you can find Mcdonalds, KFC (they even deliver), Hardees, Krispy Kreme, TGI Fridays, Macaroni Grill, Quiznos, Cold Stone Creamery, Baskin Robbings and on and on and on and on.
It seems the average price for a meal in the fast food places is around 20 riyals ($5. 50)and a meal in places like TGI Fridays seems to run around 50 riyals ($13). So I guess these prices are more or less in line with what you’d expect to pay back in the states.
I’ve also seen an Arby’s (for those who enjoy rubber sandwiches) an Applebee’s, a Cinnabon, Chillis and a few more that I can’t remember right now. Basically, if it’s an American food chain, then you can probably find it here.
