Al Khor is a small city in Qatar, situated about 55km north of Doha. Al Khor offers nearby beaches, beautiful mangroves and a shopping mall. Being a wonderful environment to raise a family and make good friends, living in Al Khor is often compared to how Doha used to be like twenty years ago.
Qatar, situated in the Middle East, is a country experiencing significant growth and development due to its enormous quantities of gas and its preparations for hosting the World Cup in 2022. The capital city, Doha, is a cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures and traditions that is internationally-minded while still preserving its own cultural identity by maintaining high expectations of adherence to local customs and traditions.
There are many benefits to living in Al Khor:
- The feeling of being safe and secure, and the freedom that this offers to individuals and families living in Qatar.
- Nearby entertainment and shopping attractions of Doha, which is about 30 minutes away. Whilst working in Al Khor or Ras Laffan, one does not have to deal with day-to-day traffic and congestion that come with living in Doha.
- The local hospital is of an excellent standard and there are many private medical practices in the area offering dentistry and other services.
- Al Khor is surrounded by desert and ocean. Living in the desert offers many opportunities to explore a wild and diverse ecology.
