We travelled with Qatar airways to the Maldives. The aircrafts were very modern, Dreamliner 787 from Brussels to Doha and then on an Airbus 321. The dreamliner is very impressive on the inside even in economy with much larger windows and very chic light diffusing style. On our return we stayed one night in Doha, offered by Qatar airways. We were really not impressed by Doha although there is the old Souq Waqif and the Museum of Islamic arts. Other than that it seems that all the skyscrapers are competing for attention. The architecture and engineering is quite impressive but it would not be a place to visit for a longer stay for us. All workers are foreigners and very friendly. The staff at the hotel were friendly apart from the receptionist whose first hello was just by my first name and passport please. Also we were given a room were there did not seem to be a place for the water to drain after the shower, making the room messy. Since it was only for one night we did not bother to change.
