We went to Qatar (from India) for 10 days in January 2018 and this place wasn't open back then. My uncle who lives in Qatar says that the zoo is pale compared to the ones in Singapore, Malaysia, India or any country for that matter.

Perhaps not in your TOP Bucket list to wander caused by society’s connotation be related to one of the Arab Countries. The truth is Qatar is not a soulless place. In fact, it’s a great spot for sunshine at least before the temperature strikes 41°C and not as cold as snow during winter season. Structures of the buildings brings a unique modern profile to the skyline of the city in the middle of the desert.
Still in the development stage where constructions are everywhere and possibly the drawback for some areas.Plenty of huge shopping centers with less people than the usual malls we have back home except weekend of Thursday and Fridays. Local women in traditional dress (abaya) worn with pride on a daily basis showing their fashionable heeled stilettos or stacked heels while men with the usual thawbs ,beards and moustache that emphasizes their strong willed personalities. The population consists higher percentage of expatriates than locals working in different fields with equally reasonable wage based on level of position. Cost of living is way better than Dubai, but if you’re a real clubber and can’t live without the juicy strips of bacon then you have to stash extra bucks to gratify your fancy. Instagramable coffee shops sites, the aroma of roasted beans lingers in your head ,scrummy taste of pastries or muffins even a bite of chocolate cookie and a sip of hot Turkish coffee are definitely worth of a try.

Middle East is not all about desert and camels, wide roads or sand storms.
but attractive beaches not to mention of wearing bikinis is a big NO! Banana Island Resort a setting closed to perfection of scenic view with defined Architectonic design that’s just 5 min away ferry ride from Shoekh Port.

Famed marketplace of Souq Waqif flooded of stalls and bustling people studded with local restaurants, souvenir shops, the scent of homeland in all corners will make you feel the essence of Arabian country.
Tourist should not need to worry about the no go areas as place is safe yet being cautious around you isn’t such a bad idea at all, crimes are very low compared to other neighboring countries even by walking alone in the street or alleys just amazed me as an Asian exposed to lawbreaking activities. Living here for 3 years I could say Qatar is a glam and gem, beautifully flicker on its own that earns a spot on your list as well.

Zoo is not ready, it is under construction. Dont even think about it. Doha Visitors should not take it into consideration.

This zoo was awesome and i wanted to visit there from last so many years but unfortunately zoo did not opened yet.
I have visited there before its closure and found it very exciting and adventurous.
I am really excited to know what changes have been made and how the zoo is modified to a Safari.

Our expectations were high before we visited this place as we were curious how a zoo could be maintained in the midst of a desert !!.
Literally, we found that the people around had turned this out into a regular park with families having picnic with BBQs and stuff.
On a Friday afternoon, this place was fully packed with such crowd. Nothing much to say about animals

Closed long term for refurbishment. Personally I don't like zoos and you cannot visit this one, it's been closed for several years and likely several mor to come.

First of all, the zoo is closed and it will not open soon (just say'n). Secondly, when I was there, it was full of animals (SARCASTICALLY). I barely saw an animal. The only animal I saw was the free, unrelated birds roaming around. It was dirty and empty.

There are rumors that they will change this zoo into a safari. Who knows, maybe they will change it to the better. Hopes up

Was one of the poor Zoos. The habitants were suffering of the hot climate. Anyway it is closed now for building a new and big Zoo. Sure, it will be one of the best, but special care has to be given to the habitants please…..
