On 18/19 February my wife and I travel from Manchester and are connecting flights in Doha on our journey to Australia via a stopover in Bangkok. Also on return from Sydney on 24/25 March. I am amazed and disappointed to learn that there is not an alcohol bar/pub in, what is supposed to be the best international airport. Whilst I respect local customs and beliefs, as connecting passengers, we will therefore not be taking alcohol into Qatar. However, we would have liked the option to choose having a drink in a bar without having to go to the caviar restaurant or similar. I shall see what the experience is like before deciding to use previous airlines again.
There is anyway to buy cocaine or similar drugs in Manchester?
The alcohol, in the countries that have knowledge other than belief, is prohibited.
I don’t think you gone die or have any problem if you don’t drink alcohol, actually you will be, for sure, more aware and self-conscious, that at least make yourself more comfortable with the people around you.
I just want to remember you and the other people from Christian countries, like mine (Italy), that it’s prohibited to drink alcohol as well for those who call themselves b Christians, since Jesus (Isa in Islam tradition) said “I’m the way…” mean the people of that belief must follow His way, and you won’t find anywhere in the bible that he got drunk.
So please respect the laws of God and country behavior as i guess you ask to respect the UK laws to the foreigners.
With respect, Mikahel.
