“Located right beside Villagio & Aspire Park. This mall is a bit smaller compared to Villagio but it has a fair variety of food and cafes as well as huge supermarket. We suggest you take away food from here and have a picnic in Aspire Park. Especially nice around sunset time.”

“This tower used to be The Torch for the Asian Games Doha 2006. It was converted into a luxurious hotel now, a place for all the rich sports team come to stay. Barcelona, MU, you name it. It is extremely expensive to stay there. It's better to stay with us instead ;) But do pay this place a visit if you wish to see all of Doha in a 360 degree view.”

“Nice coffee served 24 hours a day since as travelers, your body clock is unpredictable! This place is only 10min walk from our place. Alternative option if you prefer to hang out in the cafe atmosphere rather than our peaceful kitchen”
