Kia Ora from New Zealand.
Can anyone provide me with info on living at Al Khor. It appears from the website to be a pretty nice environment. Are there any Kiwis/Aussie living there? Also, how is the medical centre at Al Khor?
Basically it's fine, excellent facilities but a bit sterile. See http://www.qatarliving.com/qatar-forum/forums/al-khor-1 for an earlier discussion.
What a coincidence! I just finished my studies in Australia and going back home (Al Khor community) next month :). Al Khor is a great place to live, I've been livin there since 1998. We've got several club houses with heaps of facilities like gym, swimming pool, basketball & tennis court.. and much more. The community also has its own supermarket, hospital (it's huge!!), nurseries...etc. I've met a few Aussie teachers there in Al Khor International school (also inside the compound). In the weekends people usually go to Doha city.. which takes only 25-30 minutes by car. The community also provides shuttle buses inside the compound, and shopping buses that takes you to different places/stops in Doha city. Hope this helps :)
Now I wanna move there :-P Iv'e only passed by Al-Khor twice in my lifetime whilst going camping and all I can remember was that they have a gorgeous corniche. Apparently there's more to it than that.
Where/what did you study in Oz if you don't mind my asking since Ill be studying there myself this coming January?
You should come visit the QatarGas/RasGas community, get someone to invite you over lol. I basically grew up in the community so I know almost everybody so I have GOOD fun there :). I just finished my bachelor degree in e-commerce & business info systems in Melbourne. I love it here, but I'm also homesick. I can't believe I'm missing Qatar so much. I don't know why there are some people out there that thinks Qatar is boring. I've lived in Melbourne for almost 3 years now, but I still love Qatar better! Lolllzzz... I guess I have some great friends in Qatar. But good luck in Australia, you will have so much fun here :)
You'll be inviting me over once u get here :P lolz that is if I haven't left 2 Oz already. I know Ill like it in the down under as they say. Have u been 2 Syd? that's where Ill be studying.
will those staff of qatar petroleum based in ras laffan also be living in the community?
I have two boys aged 13 and 9 and am worried about housing and schooling should I take on a job with QP.
Please send me an email to hopefully ease my fears.
sounds like you know a lot about al khor. I just moved here and I'm searching for a place to play squash without having to drive to doha. any ideas?
Thanks a lot.
in the community?
Desert O' Fox
6 courts in the community for residents and guests... find a friend who plays squash in the community... what standard are you?
nasser, the compound is only for Qatargas/Rasgas staff. Another accommodation beside to this is for Dolphin energy. QP employees are not accommodated in this community. For an expat, the schooling for kids are available only at Doha...
up for this thread.....
"sacrifice is giving up something good for something better"
tho i live in doha i love al khor..its jus so peaceful...so quite....got gud resort...no traffic...wish i cud live ther...
hey, how's it going. it's sean from qatar academy. may the force be with you was great. i can't imagine our school doing that.
so I knew this was you when i read it. i'm still looking into the squash. my wife was really complaining tonight about lack of exercise and not doing much so I'd love to get in there and start working out and playing squash. Do you know how we might go about getting a membership there so we can just drive in whenever we want to and work out or play squash? Our company promised us a gym on our compound but I don't see that happening any time soon. any info you might have would be great. talk to you soon. sean.
I think i will live there soon
I'll be living there from September 2010, I was concerned about not having enough to do but thus kind of puts my mind at ease.
Are there any cheap restaurants nearby and shops to purchase Indian spices?
I noticed your post by coincidence. We are a private medical centre in Al Khor area. How do we get in touch with Al Khor community to post a part time job offer for our clinic?
Please advice, thanks
