What should I pack when moving to Doha?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Doha to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Doha, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Pack light, breathable clothing that will keep you cool in the hot, humid climate. Bring a few items of clothing that are appropriate for the conservative culture, such as long-sleeved shirts and trousers. Sunscreen and sunglasses are also essential for protecting yourself from the strong sun. Additionally, it is important to bring any necessary medications, as well as any items that will help you feel at home, such as photos and books," commented one expat who made the move to Doha, Qatar.
