Itinerary + Checklist for Qatar Trip – Part 1

Our Qatar trip is scheduled on 16th – 20th August 2012, approaching the end of Ramadan until the celebration of Eid Al Fitr.

Bahrain to Doha

And though it’s expected that temps would still be super summer high, I’m looking forward to be outdoors as much as possible (and humanly bearable). Nope, I don’t want to spend all time inside the hotel “facebooking” or window shopping at a mall. 🙂

And so in between work duties and backlog travel posts, I’ll be updating this itinerary + checklist until it’s pretty workable.

  1. Air tickets – OK. Booked flights via BA. Cheapest, as well as departure and arrival timings maximize stay.
  2. Accommodations – OK. Booked LV Hotel. Affordable. Within City Center. Near the Corniche. 🙂
  3. Visas – On arrival. (Being GCC Residents + visa professions included in their list. Otherwise, need to prearrange.)
  4. DIY City Tour & Sightseeing Schedule  – refer To Do/To See checklist.

To Do / To See Checklist

  • The Corniche
  • Museum of Islamic Art
  • Grand Mosque
  • Qatar National Museum and Aquarium (under renovation? verify)
  • Doha Fort (Al Koot)
  • Msheireb Enrichment Centre (near Sheraton)
  • Islamic Culture Centre 
  • Souq Waqif 
  • Villaggio (to open by 15th Aug, to verify)
  • Desert Safari (and camp?)
  • Dhow Dinner Cruise
  • Katara Cultural Village, West Bay Lagoon area of Doha
  • Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art (closed for summer maintenance? to verify.)
  • Khor Al Udeid (Inland Sea)
  • Meet friends – Mang Rafy, Mogs, Dex, Vise, 🙂

The List needs to be spread out on the free 4 day free period. Which activity shall be suitable in the early morning? requires half/whole day? evening? Outdoors? Indoors? Identify locations, group as per proximity, set in the schedule, while considering outside temperatures, opening/exhibit times, transport, et al. (Note to self: Print a detailed map of Doha in the morning. Done.)

Updates on Part 2. 🙂
