Half a day in Doha, Qatar

Just got back from Jeddah, KSA three days ago. On our way to Jeddah, we had a stop over at Doha Int’l Airport in Qatar for 22 hours. Ofcourse who would miss that opportunity to visit this small but rich and very organized country? We spent a night in Movenpick Hotel near the airport. Next day our flight to Jeddah was at night. So we had the whole day to roam around the city. Not to mention, going from below freezing temperature in Belgium to a hot place was simply fabulous. Hope you enjoy the following pictures while I work on the page on Doha, Qatar with travel tips and other info.

Doha - A clean and organized city

There were hundreds of pigeons at one of the gates of Souk Al Waqif
A restaurant in Souk Al Waqif, very plain yet elegant
Jallab - a sweet drink with nuts and rose water, perfect for a hot day
I had to take this picture of 2 Arabs in their thoubs smoking sheesha/hookah in Souk Al Waqif - classic

Back to hotel before heading towards the airport, needed my mint tea with a piece of Lindt
