Mesaieed is an industrial wasteland around 30km from Doha , it is no way a city of any shape or form . There is no entertainment and no major shopping malls , you're social life would consist of maybe the annual goat herding championships or dodge the irate local Arab driving down the wrong side of the road .

Doha is dull and pretty boring but Mesaieed makes it look like Bangkok . My advice would be to live in Doha and just drive every day , it's not that far and would save your soul . There's nothing there except Chemical , Gas and industrial zones , you'll find life there but not as you know it !

And not to forget the replicated houses which seem to re-occur a few thousand times.

What the various coloured traffic lights meant was "Electricity in this district at the moment...."

Yup! - You're right there! - Must get back and turn off the generator! Don't remind me of those nights spent in the car (Keeping Cool in the Summer, and Warm in the Winter!)

I shall try and be objective as just had 3 miserable days in Mesaieed.

Its a toilet, bugger all there, med centre has limited capability so in the event of something going bad, its a trip to Doha,

I have not been to the Qatalum compounds so cant comment on how good life is there, but for the rest its shite, half way to Doha is Wakra and that is shite as well

You can join half of the Qataris quad biking on the dunes just down the road if you have no aversion to fear
