QATAR AT A GLANCE
Currency: the national currency is the Qatari Riyal (QR). Currency exchange can be done at the airport, currency exchange dealers and banks. Competitive exchange rates are usually found at city center financial establishments. Try to avoid exchanging money at your hotel
Best time to travel: Qatar has a hot and arid climate, with maximum heat experienced in summers. To avoid climatic extremities, the best time to visit Qatar is between November and early April. These months are winter and early spring season. Such climatic conditions permit outdoor activities and sight-seeing across the country
Local customs: Qatar is an Islamic country and laws are always to be respected.
Make sure that your actions do not offend other cultures or religious beliefs, particularly, during the holy month of Ramadan, when visiting religious areas. Importing alcohol, pornography, pork products, narcotics and religious books into Qatar is illegal
Food: Qatar serves a variety of international cuisine, including Pakistani, Western and Indian. Curries are common, as is rice, biryani, chicken, potato plate, fruit juices and soft drinks readily available as well as gahwa, a strong and spicy Turkish coffee. Middle Eastern cuisine is found everywhere and can be purchased cheaply from take-outs. Sometimes, a meal at the Souks would be a unique experience in an authentic setting
Tipping: At restaurants, usually a service charge is added to the bill. If your bill does not include 10% service charges, then you could follow the standard tipping rules, and add it for good service.Usually, simple taxi fares do not need a tip. However, drivers sometimes trek into the backyards of the country, and such drivers should be given the same 10%.
