Friends..

Doha has always rivaled Dubai in sharing the limelight and has worked hard to change its image of a 'sleepy city'. Do you think Doha will be able to reach the level of success Dubai had enjoyed?

Check out some of the photographs of the upcoming developments in the neighborhood.

Earsplease: Doha catching up with Dubai

Cheers
Immo

They have big plans, but have a loooonnngg way to go yet.

I have a good friend who lives in Doha and she'd move back to Dubai in a heartbeat.

Unlike Dubai, Doha is heavily investing in education and research. And from what I hear their locals are more hardworking and willing to learn, than Emiratis. I think in the long run Doha will outshine Dubai!

I visit Doha on many occassions & they are growing in many ways

Doha is & will be a very different place to Dubai & have there own agenda
they are not trying to catch up with Dubai in any shape or form ..

They are extremely rich in Gas & Oil & unlike Dubai do not rely on Real Estate & Tourism .. they have a very strong economy !!

They build as per requirements & not just for the sake of it
There Hotels are on 95% occupancy, mainly corporate clients

I would say there doing very well & good luck to them :clap2:
