A lot of “bad things” were told about this world cup, but, the organization was well done. Beside the flight and accommodation, the rest was cheap, especially transportation: Free subway pass and bus pass, that was great!!!
What was great also, for the very first time, the whole competition was in 1 city, so, it was easy to meet with all the fan from around the world!!
Before coming here, I thought it will be a boring World Cup compared to Brazil or Russia. But it was not. Good time in Qatar!!
* Too many Apps to download
* Lodging was expensive (normal) but difficult to book
* It was hot!!! Fortunately, the nights were cooler
The Vibes, the Emotion, the Excitement, the Passion, in a beautiful stadium, with a France victory, what can be better?
The game was at 22.00, so arrive at the hotel at 2.00….
A very clean and safe city!
Even at this time of the year it was very hot!!
It is a place where rich people hang out on weekend. Very clean place, like all Doha
A lot of animations were there for the world cup, that was good, but too crowded!
So, I booked a bungalow at a fan village. What could it be? Well, not so bad!
They built a complete “village” with well-equipped bungalows as rooms (see the last 4 photos), a lobby, a pharmacy, a supermarket, a restaurant for breakfast, a laundry room, and a giant TV screen where we could see live game with a nice sitting area.
That was nicely put together. On top of that, because we were isolated, we had 24/7 free buses to the subway station. Well Done!!
With 1,440 bungalows in the village, the few maintenance guys were very busy, don’t expect to come soon to fix your issue….
