Thousands of residents are making the trek back to Qatar after the Eid holidays – just in time for school to start, local media is reporting.
Travel agents say inbound flights from India, Malaysia, Egypt, the Philippines and some European countries are booked solid until mid-September, and the airport has promised speedy processing for all incoming passengers.
For those who have not left Doha’s steamy bosom this past month, the influx of people is sure to induce grumbles, as traffic on the roads, at the malls and in the supermarkets increases several-fold.
But the return of Qatar’s population also signals a return to business as usual, including regular bank and government office hours.
What do you guys think? Are you looking forward to things going back to normal, or were you enjoying the leisurely pace of Doha summer?
