Hello Bwiiian:)

I think, the first thing to consider is if u need a visa or not.

Cool.
A visa for the day.
Can one get them, at Doha airport?
If I have to spend a lot of time at Doha airport some time in the future I would like to go into the city, for a day too.

What u can do to get the answer to your question, is go into a bookshop and look it up, in the relevent Lonely Planet book. That is what I do, when I only have one query and do not think buying the book is worth it.

Apparantly you can get a day pass visa to go into Doha. I presume you need the onward ticket to get one. I was wondering if it is easy to get into Doha and what can I do there. Also I have realised that I have 6 hours, not 11 and so is it worth going in for that amount of time? Even if there is not much I can do in that time I think it would be worth it, as it is not a part of the world I would normally think about going to as I think it is a bit like Dubai, and not having a lot of money I don't really think it was built for me!! But a few hours looking around would be interesting.
