    The Persian Gulf is a long way from home, so I was especially glad to discover this super expat community for Doha.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Doha

Hello to all Americans in Doha! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Doha? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Doha which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Doha is a modern city with a constantly changing skyline. The capital of Qatar is a fast growing city known for its many mosques, modern buildings, towering skyscrapers, luxury hotels , and much more! With the network of buses and road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Al Waab or West Bay, for example, which are both less than a 30-minute car journey away from Doha’s center.

Although Doha has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Doha, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
