Mercure Grand Hotel Doha
Travel Blogs from Doha
Salam Today we flew from Singapore to Doha. It was a 7 1/2 hour flight starting at 2:20 Singapore time and finishing at 4:50 Qatar time. I think if the Big Bad Wolf came to Doha he could huff and puff and blow many of the buildings down. In Doha today it will be 40 degrees so it is an inside day. We will take it easy today and catch up on some …
... her views on NGOs and microfinance, informed me about Sri Lanka's closed economy prior to the 1970s, gave me a bit more information on WIM as an organisation as well as some further insights into some of the female entrepreneurs lives. In the evening I hung out with Sulo's daughter, we watched a Korean soap and shared our love for One Direction. My four weeks in Sri Lanka have gone exceptionally quickly and I can't quite believe it's time to ...

I felt at home just visiting for a week. ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMercure Grand Hotel Doha
The staff at the Mercure went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. Every question was accommodated.
