Vibrant with modernity and luxuriant cityscapes, Doha is the place to try coliving in if you want the easy convenience of the metropolis while also being in close proximity to daring sand adventures. It’s the capital of Qatar, a desert country situated in Western Asia, and its thriving economy has pushed the country to become the richest nation in the world.
Doha’s luxurious lifestyle can be seen in the establishments itself. 5-star hotels, upscale dining experiences, and thriving Islamic art scenes can be found around the city. The city has one of the most diverse cuisines in the world, taking inspiration from Chinese, Filipino, Mexican, Malaysian, American, and traditional Qatari dishes.
But as cosmopolitan Doha is, its Bedouin culture is still deeply ingrained in every corner. Find a little trinket to remember your trip in its traditional souqs (street market) or immerse yourself in their culture by spending the afternoon at the Museum of Islamic Art - an establishment that’s a mix between Islamic and modern architecture.
And for remote workers who want to make sure they have their own space to hustle and work, the coliving scene has long taken root in Doha.
