    The formalities for travelling to Doha

    • Entry requirements: you will need a passport valid for at least six months after you enter Qatari territory. Since summer 2017, citizens of France and Monaco, among others, no longer need a tourist visa. You can get it quickly and free of charge when you arrive at the airport, by presenting your passport.
    • Currencies: in Doha, the currency is Qatari riyal (QAR). One euro is worth approximately four riyals. You can exchange your euros on the day of your departure, with Interchange, in Terminal 1 of Nice Côte d’Azur Airport.

    Nice-Doha direct flight

    With the Nice-Doha flight, Qatar awaits at Terminal 1 of Nice Côte d’Azur Airport.

    Arrive at least 1h15 before your flight, to leave plenty of time to check in your luggage and get through security.

    Arriving at Doha airport

    Your flight will land at Hamad International Airport, in Doha itself, about 15 kilometres from the city centre. You have several options for transfer from the airport:

    • By bus: every 20 minutes, bus 777 connects the Bus Pavilion (at the right-hand end of the Arrivals Terminal) to the main districts of Doha.
    • By taxi: the Taxi Pavilion is located at the left-hand end of the Arrivals Terminal. It will cost you around 10 to 15 euros, depending on the time and your destination.
    • By car: there are almost 20 car hire companies at the airport. This is an excellent solution if you are planning on venturing out of Doha.

What to do in
Doha ?

Doha is like America in the land of black gold, a forest of skyscrapers next to the Indian Ocean. Built along a 7 kilometre bay, Doha (meaning “the big tree”) has 80 different towers, the tallest of which is 300 metres high. These audacious architectural totems are evidence of Qatar’s prosperity. However, the Qatari capital has not entirely sacrificed its soul on the altar of modernity. It still cherishes Arabic culture and traditions, via its old town, its souk and its museums. As for the Bedouins’ beloved desert, it is never far away!

    Although almost all of the big hotels in Doha have a Kids’ Club, the activities on offer in this destination make it better suited to a couple, a group of friends or a family with older teenagers. These are the kinds of travellers who will get the most out of Doha’s main attractions. Explore the city on foot to discover its old neighbourhoods (which contrast with the ultra-modern constructions by Pei and Nouvel), its chic restaurants and cheap eateries, its fashion stores and massive shopping centres, and the unbelievable jewellers of the Gold Souq.
    Had enough of urban pleasures? Want to get back to nature? Then head for the seashore, relax on sun lounger on the private beach of a palace, climb aboard a dhow to head for an island, or explore the reefs and cargo ship wrecks, looking for groupers, barracudas, or one of the few remaining dugongs.
    Then it’s back to land, or rather sand: that of the desert! This is a preferred hunting ground of rich Qataris and their falcons. You can cross it in a 4x4, on a quad bike, or on a camel: a fascinating experience, day or night.

    1. Visit the unmissable Museum of Islamic Art, which boasts a remarkable collection, but also stunning architecture by Pei and Wilmotte. Enriching!
    2. Stroll through the alleys of Katara, a cultural village established by the former Emir of Qatar. Traditional pigeon towers, a mosque adorned with Persian mosaics, a Greek amphitheatre… Astonishing!
    3. After nightfall, wander along the Corniche, a long pedestrian promenade by the seafront, and admire the skyline carved out by the skyscrapers. Striking!
    4. Haggle for souvenirs in Souq Waqif. With its Art Centre, its falcon market, its spice bazaar and its perfume market, this modern souk has real soul. Enchanting!
    5. Climb onto a camel to ride through the dunes, and if the idea appeals, sleep in a tent in the middle of the desert. Magical!
    6. Go for gold: the Gold Souq is the place to find intricately crafted bracelets or 22 karat necklaces. This market brings together around 40 local jewellers. Dazzling!
    7. Take a gondola trip at Villaggio Mall, an open-air shopping centre built around a canal, Venice-style. 200 different brands, with something for everyone. Great fun!
    8. See the sea in the desert: Khor al Adaid. 60 kilometres south of Doha, the ocean has carved out an inlet into the dunes, forming a vast inland sea. Spellbinding!
    9. For a five-star tan, grab a sun lounger on the private beach of a luxury establishment: the Sharq, the InterContinental, the Diplomatic Club or the W. Drive. Relaxing!
    10. Lift the anchor! Discover the islands off Doha in a dhow. Explore Al Shafliyeh, Al Shafliyah or Shara’o: near-deserted islands with magnificent beaches. Exotic!
