As residents and citizens are excited for the country’s first-ever railway network which opened on May 8, we also visited Doha Metro to experience the ride!

The line currently operates from Al Qassar (near The St Regis Doha) to Al Wakra. We picked Msheirib station as our starting point and traveled all the way to Wakra and back.
