Make a trip to Losail International Circuit to catch the Qatar MotoGP. The spectacle of bikes whizzing by under the night sky makes for a night you won’t forget!
For my everyday essentials…
Spinneys and Mega Mart have all I need.
Editor’s Note: A favourite among the locals, Spinneys is a premium supermarket chain in the Middle East. If you’re looking for a foreign food product, try Mega Mart. You can find Spinneys at The Mall and Mega Mart along Ibn Seena Street. Both are a 15-minute drive away from Fraser Suites Doha.
The one thing I’ll miss the most when I leave…
My colleagues. They come from many different countries, making it a very diverse, multi-national team.
Fraser Suites West Bay, Doha resident (2017-2018)
For CFO Shadi Qishta, his early days of relocating to Doha for his job were difficult to get used to, the biggest culprit being the weather. Hailing from Jordan, it was hard to acclimatise to Doha’s desert climate. “Back home in Jordan, it usually snows during winter. But here in Doha, the temperature during winter can be as warm as 25 degrees Celsius!”
However, his family immersed themselves in the culture of Doha and also enjoyed some adventures along the way.
Recounting his nearly year-long stay at Fraser Suites West Bay, Doha, the 40-year-old shared that his fondest memory of staying at the serviced residence was welcoming a new member to his family. He said: “My baby boy was born here in Doha. In fact, he is also the first baby in Fraser Suites West Bay, Doha!”
