the qataris are good people, they usually cover up from head to toe(as is their custom), but they dont require that you do the same.
we see westerners dressed in sleeveless tops and shorts walking around the malls, and thats okay, too. (though i wonder sometimes, dont they feel the cold? its freezing inside the malls).
it would be better to wear a tshirt and knee length clothes, more out of respect to other people and to avoid the stares. ( majority of low-paid labourers, especially from pakistan, bangladesh, srilanka,and nepal are living the life of bachelors, and is it fair to them if you flaunt it?)
Hi. Im a 20 yearold girl and i will be moving to Qatar in a few months. Could someone tell me smth about the swimwear? ive heard that wearing a bikini at a beach is not a very good idea. is that true? I mean there r such beautiful beaches and i wont be able to go taning while i live there?
To the woman wondering about bikinis the beaches are beautiful but be warned the good ones are attached to hotels and resorts and usually require you to join their beach clubs before you'll be allowed to use them. These usually cost a small fortune. Wearing a bikini is ok but be prepared to attract a certain amount of unwanted attention its the same with dress, wear what you like just be prepared for a certain amount of staring you get used to it to the point were you dont notice.Again have respect for the culture and they will respect you.
i am going for a job in qatar, and have found it very interesting to read about what to wear, etc. is it the same with hair, dont wish to sound ignorant, but do they mind short hair. also they have asked for a photo before talking to me. is this normal? thanks in advance
thats not true these western women dress very nasty and sluty as well as the phillopenos. Its a shamed that we see all of these muslim women dressed modestle not even showing there faces and these nasty women come here with no respect for other peoples country and religion and dress so unappropriately. Thats why we have so much rape and mulistationn in the world because these people are seeing all this skin and people are becoming purverded. Keep the shayton Devil away from muslim countries leave that where you come from have respect for our religion. I am from the west US Los Angales California. Born and raised I just got here and I can finally cover my body from head to toe and not worry about anyone staring at me or trying to do something o me cause im trying to obey my lord all the believing women should cover there body to not be annoyed or harrased by men take head. Stop being naked it not cute.
Hi, I'm a Qatari girl, I'm an English teacher. I'm very open-minded, I've been to Europe and Aisa and I know how Erouian and American woman wear and I have nothing against it. BUT..
- Qatar is an Islamic country and wearing revealing clothes are not appropriate.
- Showing affection such as french kissing or making out is a big no-no!!
- Just think what a nun wouldn't like and don't don it LOL JK!!!
- Other than that u can just relax and have fun and don't feel antimidated by Qatari woman they won't bite ( i notice that most of Eru and Amr. woman aviod eye contact and sort of keep their eyes on their kids when we are around ! don't worry ppl look at ur kids cuz they are cute! .
Any more requests u can e-amil me on
I would love to make freinds i REALLY need to practice my language.. don't worry i can speak english, you won't have to tutor me !!!
i wouldn't know about a taxi at night.. Qatar used to be one of the safest countries but in recent years alot of single, poor workes coming as builders and stuff and they are causing all sorts of troubles.. just 2 weeks ago i was walking home from the beauty salon and a worker was chasing me in a company pick up and even got another worker to help i was almost kidnapped!!!
I cannot believe you are from the USA. Had you been, you would see that in our country, you can wear whatever you want no matter how weird it looks. We tolerate you, but do not expect to tolerate us. We have prayer rooms for Muslims and it is good. I am glad we do, but it is wrong to refer to Westerners as sluts and bad people. People like you create tension and animosity, and you need to use a spell check, your speling is terrible for someone supposidly brought up in the USA
I am from Rio and as soon I arrived in Doha I was "bodered" by arabic men. The cars sales atendent which sold to my husband our car and have seen me just once (and I was very well covered)got my home and mobile number and send me lots of very unaproprieted mesages. And he was only the first of many bad Arabic behaviors that I went though. I fell so sorry for their muslian wives. I was wondering if they know what kind of man they have at home. This kind of abuse NEVER happened in my country. I really would like to go back home, Doha is sooooooo boring.
I'm coming to Doha for some business meetings next week. I can't get away of not wearing a business suit. How is being in a suit at 41˚C. Any suggestions?
I'll also have a day of extra time in Doha do you have any suggestions on what to do here for a day
