Travel Blogs from Doha
Driving from the airport along the corniche to Doha's diplomatic quarter during the evening, you could be forgiven for thinking you have arrived not just in another country but on another planet. Neon blue buildings glitter in the distant haze, red-topped megastructures dot the skyline ahead of you and an entire skyscraper that appears to be …
... place looks like a small Dubai. They're dropping their dough on fancy hotels and expensive restaurants to try to encourage tourism before their oil money runs out. From Qatar we stopped in Amman, because Qatar doesn't fly directly to Israel (due to their relationship).

Excellent hotel for a business trip. The room was large and well furnished. No plug near to the bed though!
