Doha Airport (DOH) Transfers

Did You Know?

About Doha

It is the most populous city, a multicultural city, and the capital of Qatar conveniently located on the coast of the Persian Gulf. Being the fastest growing city in the state, it has so much to offer, from fascinating culture and architecture to relaxation and adventure. 

Things to do

If you’ve never been to Doha before, you should first visit a few places to find out more about its history, culture, and art - National Museum of Qatar, Museum of Islamic Art, The Mathaf, Msheireb Museums, and Katara Cultural Village where you can also relax, eat, or shop. There is also Souq Waqif, ancient outdoor market with cafes and fascinating small shops. If looking for a big fancy shopping mall, go to Lagoona Mall.

The Pearl-Qatar is an artificial island with luxury hotels and residences, restaurants, cafes, and a shopping mall. If you’re traveling with children or simply want to take a walk in a park, go to Aspire Park with a lake and playgrounds, MIA Park offering views of the city skyline, or Gondolania - an amusement park. There are also amazing sand dune adventures for those who love adventures.

Hamad International Airport 

This is the only international airport in the entire State of Qatar opened in 2014. It located about 8 miles from the city center. The airport code is DOH, and it has only one airport terminal for the time being. Qatar, however, plans to build another one in the near future.

DOH, its airport code, has numerous services to offer. Whether you’re searching for a place to shop, eat, relax, or grab a drink (coffee, alcoholic beverages, etc), you will easily find a nice place to do it at Hamad International Airport, such as Soho Coffee. You can buy anything from beauty and fashion products to electronics and jewelry. There are restaurants offering global cuisine, and you can even visit an art exhibition or use their spa and fitness centre / wellness centre to relax or exercise.
