Transfer in Qatar
Qatar is the richest country in the world. Like many other Arab states, it became rich after the discovery of oil deposits there. However, if you want to see the life of local residents before the "golden" era, you can only do it in the Ethnographic Museum of Qatar in the capital city of Doha. The nearest public beach is 60 km away from this city. There you can swim in the waters of the Persian Gulf. 100 km away from Doha there is an abandoned city of Al-Zubar. In the old days, it flourished due to pearl fishing, and now it is an important archaeological site.
Public transport is traditionally poorly developed in Qatar and it is represented only by buses that do not adhere to a certain timetable. Therefore, tourists are advised to travel around the country by taxi. This service is quite cheap due to low prices for gasoline. However, there are some important nuances. The vast majority of taxi drivers are immigrants, mainly from Bangladesh. They have a poor knowledge of routes and roads and they almost do not understand English. Even if the car is equipped with a taximeter, local drivers prefer to negotiate the price. This must be done before departure.
You can order a taxi by phone, via a mobile app, or find it in parking lots near hotels. Hailing cars on the street is problematic. From 21:00 to 05:00 taxis have an increased night rate.
If you want to avoid problems with a local taxi, order a transfer from Kiwitaxi. All our drivers know the route in advance. They have enough time for this because the transfer must be booked at least 16 hours before departure. You can see the price on the website, and it will not change after you make a prepayment or pay the full price.
