Doha is a strange city in the way that there's really no "good" or "bad" places to stay. The expat community is massive and so is spread throughout a nymber of different neighbourhoods. If you want to be in close proximity to all the regular amenities you should consider Al Waab, but then you'll have to suffer the traffic. If you don't mind being a bit farther away, West Bay is a great place to live without all the congestion and noise.

Compounds can vary considerably in standard, so have a look if you can and decide which suits you best. Prices also range tremendously. A low-end villa or aparmtent can cost over 3000 USD and a high-end villa as much as 8,000 USD.

I realised in my last post, I omitted some crucial information about choosing an area in Qatar. Beyond all else, it's most important to be close to your workplace, so you can minimise your time twiddling thumbs in traffic (Qatar enjoys an all-day RUSH HOUR)...

Read the Expat Arrivals Areas and Suburbs of Qatar page for more info about specific neighbourhoods.

If you are thinking of relocating to Doha, very simple STAY AWAY! Worst place to live in the Gulf, just pick Dubai or Abu Dhabi
