Alex Greenwood & Sam Edison made Doha their home several years ago. They have travelled many parts of the world together, while getting used to the company of very well researched travel books.

Let them take you to the must-see tourist attractions such as the crowded Souq Waqif and the majestic Museum of Islamic Art. Read their tips and tricks when picking the right Friday brunch.Whether you are visiting for lounging at the pool or the beach, to try the cuisine from around the world, to go dune bashing in the desert or you are just transferring to your final destination, Qatar really has something for every type of traveler. We are thrilled to give you a quick glimpse on what is possible in this exciting country.
