Nobody has mentioned the horrendous accommodation costs - way above those of Dubai and Ab Dab.

What sort of housing arrangements are in the package?

For accomodation one flat with two bedrooms may cost 7,000Qr or 2,000US$ per month. I think accomodation here is cheaper than Dubai or abu dhabi.

Sorry but I've seen direct comparisons, and I know a number of people with 'cousins' in both places - they ALL say Doha is the more expensive.

Anyway - the OP should make enquiries.

The six star spa hotel (on the coast - looks a bit like madinat) they have there is the scene of my most inadvertently expensive night out in years...

bloody con artists

I hate to blow my own trumpet (it's hard to reach, mind), but there is quite a bit of info on Qatar in my blogs. It also looks like I'll be coming back there in a week or two's time.

2 quick points: you can get alcohol, and you can get multi-exit visas.
