We just got back from Qatar. I had to go there for work and we figured we could make a trip of it. Rowan and Kerri hung out at our hotel while I worked and then we had a few days after for looking around.
The verdict is...meh. There are some positives...better food selection for one, and it feels less dusty (cleaner maybe?)...but that's all I can think of. It's much like Kuwait, but with a smaller feel (if that's possible).
The best part was Souk Waqif, a very nice area that was an old market and still is, but has been remodeled and done up nicely for the tourists with lots of restaurants and shisha.
We rented a car one day and drove around the area outside Doha. It feels much like the entire country other than Doha is one big construction site with lots of debris and such. Very uninteresting.
Sorry to sound so down, we had a good time really! It was nice to get out of Kuwait for a while, but we were very glad to be home.
